The complete schedule of upcoming Star Wars movies from Han Solo to Episode IX and beyond!
The new Star Wars saga is about to continue with more adventures in 2018 with a Han Solo standalone film, simply titled Solo, which will star Alden Ehrenreich as a younger version of the beloved scoundrel with Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. We’ll get Episode IX in 2019 and a third standalone movie by 2020, too.
And that is probably only the beginning.
So, this will be the page where we keep track of all upcoming Star Wars movie releases. It might not look like much (right now), but she’s got it where it counts. Hit the blue links in each entry to get taken to articles that tell you more of what you need to know about the movies!
May 25, 2018 – Star Wars: Han Solo
Directors: Phil Lord and Chris Miller
Writers: Lawrence and Jon Kasdan
Starring: Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Phoebe Mary Waller-Bridge and Woody Harrelson
Synopsis: “The story focuses on how young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina at Mos Eisley.” It sounds like we’ll be getting a Han Solo in his late teens/early 20s, as well.
May 24, 2019 – Star Wars: Episode IX
Director: Colin Trevorrow
Writer: Rian Johnson
TBA – Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi
A standalone movie focusing on Obi-Wan Kenobi has been rumored for a long time, and it sounds like it’s finally happening. Stephen Daldry (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close) is in early talks to direct. It’s unclear if Ewan McGregor will reprise his role as the Jedi Master, but the actor has said in the past that he’d be happy to return for another movie. He might just get his wish.
TBA – Star Wars: Boba Fett
For a while, it seemed like Boba Fett was going to be the second standalone Star Wars film, but this is no longer the case after director Josh Trank was forced to drop out of the project amidst some bad publicity following the turbulent production of Fantastic Four at 20th Century Fox. Time will tell if this movie will be able to escape the sarlacc pit.
We expect more dates and details about all of these movies to arrive any minute. We’ll keep you posted as it happens!
