When Disney bought the rights to Star Wars from Lucasfilm back in 2012, we knew that we could expect many new Star Wars movies. If the recently released Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Force Awakens and, The Last Jedi are anything to go by, then the new Star Wars movies still set for release are sure to wow fans and newbies alike.
These are the upcoming new Star Wars movies that we can’t wait to see come alive on the big screen and feed our appetite for anything Star Wars.
Solo: A Star Wars Story
Just like Rogue One told a story outside of the Skywalker storyline, more new Star Wars movies will do the same. Your favourite galactic scoundrel will be getting the honour he deserves in his own Han Solo movie.
Han Solo will be portrayed by Alden Ehrenreich. Emilia Clark (from Game of Thrones) is signed on as Kira. Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) will be portraying the role of Lando Calrissian.
Release Date: May 2018
Star Wars: Episode IX
We always knew that the new Star Wars movies following the Skywalker storyline would be a trilogy. Originally the last of the new Star Wars movies following the Skywalker storyline was going to be directed by Colin Trevorrow. However, after “creative differences” it was announced that director of The Force Awakens, J.J. Abrams will be writing and directing the untitled Episode IX.
Release Date: December 2019
Obi-Wan Origin Movie
One of the most speculative new Star Wars movies is whether or not an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie is in the making. The standalone new Star Wars movies like Rogue One and the upcoming Han Solo movie were never officially confirmed to be a trilogy, but Disney’s CEO Bob Iger has confirmed that a third movie was coming. If it’s not an Obi-Wan movie, then there are also some rumours about a Yoda or Boba Fett movie.
Release Date: Unconfirmed.
New Star Wars Trilogy
Director of The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson has signed up to direct and write three new Star Wars movies. The new trilogy will focus on something completely different to any of the previous Star Wars stories that have been told.
Obviously I hope you like The Last Jedi. But man now I REALLY hope you like The Last Jedi.

New Star Wars Movies From Game Of Thrones Creators
Shortly after it was announced that Rian Johnson will have his own trilogy, it was confirmed that the creators of the highly popular HBO show, Game of Thrones will be creating their own Star Wars storyline too. No word yet as to what David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, but based on their previous work we’re very keen to see what they create.
