The Future of the Star Wars

One of our most involved forummembers and regular visitors to the site, Marko, wanted to share his opinion in the form of a short column about the future of Star Wars with our followers. Do you also want to share something? Let us know!

In the coming years, a lot will happen in the Star Wars universe. Partially confirmed. The closing, third (IX) part of the sequel trilogy, and according to JJ Abrams of the entire saga. A series of films by Benioff and Weis, which made the much praised Game of Thrones. A trilogy by Rian Johnson. A television series by Jon Favreau for the future Disney streaming service, which will play a few years after Return of The Jedi. A new animation series, which even has a name, Resistance. Unofficially the strongest rumors are about an Obi Wan Kenobi film that would be directed by Stephen Daldry and a Boba Fett movie by James Mangold.

But before that happens, there must first be bitten by the sour apple that is the present. Solo makes a financial stumbling. Anyway, that is a fact. Is that going to affect the aforementioned future?

Yes. All possible other causes have been set aside, ostensibly the world is not very much waiting for origin stories from well-known Star Wars characters. Of course, the divided opinion about The Last Jedi has not escaped the people at Lucasfilm. If you assume how 'easy' Kathleen Kennedy puts active directors on non-active, it seems no problem to cancel scheduled films. All this adds up to wonder if we will ever see the Rian Johnsons trilogy and whether the rumors about a Boba Fett and an Obi Wan movie will always remain rumors.

During all this, Lucasfilm remains silent, outward. It seems as if the walls are being raised higher and higher. There is a feeling of tension. If you do not say anything, you can not say anything wrong, or anything like that. Would they really wait for the next Star Wars Celebration, 2019 in Chicago, to give the longing fans something of certainty. Lucasfilm should quickly open the gates. Provide information about the upcoming projects, perhaps even engage in dialogue with fans. To date, however, it remains silent, dead silent and that whole glorious future of Star Wars is just as uncertain as who the parents of Rey are.

    Is this future so uncertain? From the beginning (that Disney, Lucas has taken over), there would be a "normal" movie and a star wars story every other year. Nonetheless, solo has been flopped, unfortunately. In my opinion, Disney is too eager to deal with the franchise to exploit as many fans as possible and give them a dissimilar?
    Regarding the series, one is definitely going on. This is because the streaming service has to compete against other services that make them use the star wars (because of the big fanbase). What seems interesting to me before is how long the fanbase remains large. For now this is coffee grounds and try to enjoy what Disney has in store.

Is risk taking good for Star Wars?

Has Star Wars become more interesting because it dares to take risks? Has Star Wars become better or worse, now that it is taking new direction and making choices based on what is good for the story and not what the fans want?

The First (Watching) Order

With the addition of Solo: A Star Wars Story on the saga, an old discussion arises: What is the right order to watch all the films? I continue to find it interesting to see how people hold different orders to look and attach their own value to. (Lake…)
