“Me and mark would just kind of joke around and not take anything seriously unless Alec Guinness was on set”, Harrison ‘Han Solo’ Ford said this about the early days on the set of ‘The Star Wars’ which later came to be known as ‘The Episode 4’ of the Star Wars Saga. Perhaps, no one knew what they were getting themselves into, or what it will eventually become—except for one man may be, George Lucas. Seriously, if you haven’t heard about the difficulties that George had to endure to get the first Star Wars movie on screen, I would recommend you to go and read it. Everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong, but George kept going, all because he had a lot of faith in the story.
It was a phenomenon, the phenomenon, which would go on and become the most successful movie franchise ever. We have reached a point in time where Star Wars is not just a comic or a movie; it’s a feeling. The lightsaber is not a weapon anymore, it’s a string of emotions, the Millennium Falcon feels like home, and Jar Jar Binks, well, let’s not go that way. So, what’s the next Stars Wars movie? What happens after the end of the Skywalker saga? How many more spinoffs from the original trilogy should you expect? Here is a list of upcoming Star Wars movies, including the rumored ones which are not confirmed yet but are most likely to happen.
10-8. David Benioff and D.B Weiss
David Benioff and D.B Weiss, if you haven’t heard about these two guys, then you either haven’t seen Game of Thrones, or you don’t pay attention to anything. Kathleen Kennedy, the president of LucasFilm, confirmed the news and said—“Everyone is thrilled to have these two geniuses on board.” Certainly, David and Dan’s cinematic way of telling a simple story and their ability to make the audiences care for the characters will come in handy and provide the Star Wars Franchise a much-needed push. Although they will only start working on the Star Wars project once they are done with Game of Thrones, whose eighth and final season will air somewhere around April next year. It is not yet confirmed how many movies they will write and produce but you wouldn’t bet against them going for a trilogy.
