    Today, Josh from The Den of Nerds dropped this on his YouTube channel. He is reporting that Episodes 10-12 are in early development at Lucasfilm. My thoughts withstanding, I felt like this needed to be posted. What are your thoughts on this rumor? Let me know below.

    Josh isn't really a reliable source, he has proven that in the past.

    Furthermore I highly doubt that LF will go back to the trilogy model. At least not that fast. I think a Disney+ series set after the events of TROS is much more likely.

    Well, we are getting post-ST content. I agree, it won't be a trilogy.

    I think it’ll probably happen eventually, but I’d be surprised if it was anytime soon (e.g this decade).

    He said on a separate video today it’s likely a minimum of 6 years away at the absolute earliest.

    Do I think we'll get a future trilogy? Absolutely. Just because Lucasfilm is investing more in the D+ shows doesn't mean that they'll put all their eggs in one basket.

    Do I think said trilogy is in early development? I can see that being the case - planning out what the future will look like so you can hone in on what stories you want to tell now isn't new (or frankly even original to storytelling, as starting at the "finish line" and working backwards/breaking things up into chunks is a valuable strategy).

    Do I believe that this video is onto something? Not really. The above two things aren't that hard to picture or accurately guess IMO, nor do they feel like breaking news.

    Not taking anything from that guy, he's one of the biggest sausage party attenders I have ever come across, the way he only talks about the male characters is in infuriating. His only insiders are his toxic reddit mates and occasionally the odd interview with Jason Ward. He's probably getting jealous there is more rumours about Finn coming back than his precious Ben Solo. Still remember the way he pushed that rumour it was Ben Solo on Tatooine with the yellow saber and not Rey. Even Jason Ward had to push it back in his face. (Yes that was another reddit rumour but would not be the least surprised if he was the one that posted it).

    Ben Solo was my favourite character - not just in the ST but the entire saga - but sadly, I doubt very much if he'll be back. Disney wanted Rey as 'the' hero, and rubbed it in by having Ben sacrifice himself for her. End of.

    Oh this is definitely a go. There is just way too much money to be made for Disney to say no to this (especially given the financial fall out of COVID). The cast are relatively still young and very popular with many fans and the general public. Also given the fact that many fans (ie. people who spend money) are Reylo fans, so they won't want Daisy and Adam to age out. LF won't make the same mistake as they did with the OT trio and have the cast be seniors.

    I may be very wrong on this. But my theory is that it's Rian Johnson trilogy. He will be writing and directing the films or at least over seeing the entire production. Part of the reason he turned down 9 was that he didn't feel as if he could turn around a (quality) film in time for the release date.

    Apart from the money to be made, I think doing 2 or 3 more films will enable to tie up the saga properly in ways that 9 never did. 9 and the ST in general was a good introduction and character study. But gave us little to nothing on the wider galaxy. I think that the ST cast in the PT world would have been a great set of films.



    Hmm....could this have anything to do with the fact that 2027 is the 50th anniversary release of Star Wars?

    Watch as they finally get around to these movies in like 2040 and they’ll be like “Ah ha! See you told you guys!”

    I have no doubt that we’ll get a new series of films post-TROS eventually, but focusing on Ben Solo sounds a little too good to be true. I could see them inventing a story reason to resurrect him but I doubt he’d be the lead. Also, I don’t think they’re going to refer to these inevitable movies as Episodes 10-12 and instead start a new saga, maybe still starring Rey and friends. Hopefully they don’t restrict themselves to just the trilogy format now that the Skywalker Saga is finished.

    I'm middle aged now so I'd probably be in my dotage then or 'one with the Force'!;)

    Seriously, I doubt if they would be able to get Adam Driver back years from now. If they wanted to bring back Ben Solo it would have to be much sooner. And they don't seem to have much interest in resurrecting his character - they went to great pains in TROS to push Rey as 'the Skywalker' which is ironic because post TFA they repeatedly insisted she wasn't a Skywalker and that Kylo was 'the Skywalker' of the trilogy.

    I have heard a rumour of a possible Finn series, which seems far more likely.

    I can't say I really buy it. But if you told me in 2008 that there would be a sequel trilogy I would have laughed. If you told me in 2016 that Werner Herzog would be playing an Imperial mandarin in a streaming spin off show I would have choked and not thanked you for it.

    After The Last Jedi I actually had a very strong feeling that 10 thru whatever was now almost a guarantee. After Rise I'm not so sure. It's hard to judge when so many of the saga's return customers seem to be frequent if not constant malcontents. It's almost like being unhappy is the appeal for some folks. So why wouldn't D/LFL continue to provide those people with a product they can get their teeth in to.

    Rogue Squadron has in interesting offical description, "The story will introduce a new generation of starfighter pilots as they earn their wings and risk their lives in a boundary-pushing, high-speed thrill-ride, and move the saga into the future era of the galaxy."
    To me, this implies it takes place in the ST era. So, I don't think Star Wars will use the trilogy format anymore. It'll be more like Marvel.

    Have to say here, I really wish I liked the 'heroes' more, but I don't really care about any future projects featuring Rey, Finn and Poe. they didn't interest me that much.

    A new trilogy will probably be made for sure. Master Jedi Rey Skywalker with a new apprentice perhaps, new adventures, etc...just hope they don't bring Palpatine once again!:D

    I'm sure they will make another saga trilogy. That's the bread and butter of the franchise, but I don't think it'll be for many many years. Many. Many. Years. They have enough content set between ep.6 and 7 to milk for a long time.
    What intrigued me is Rogue Squadron is set after ep.9, so that's unusual if you were going to end the story at 9.
    They brought Palpatine back so they can just say hey, somehow leia had another kid no one knew about. Broom boy was leias kid they put up for adoption.
    Or Ben force inseminated Rey or something like that.

    Honestly, we're kind of in an interesting era of discussion on this.

    The OT was obviously its own thing, the PT was the story that led to the fall of the Jedi and the rise of the Empire, and the ST was a checkup on the heroes a generation or two after the OT.

    But what now?

    I could see a few possibilities:

    1. A new trilogy following the ST characters that come back. This is probably the most obvious solution, but it is kind of weird in that the through line is sort of reset at this point. While the Skywalker line is pretty strong between the PT-ST, this would really just be picking up after the ST. And maybe that's a good thing!

    Personally, I think this could bring some really creative storytelling options to the series, really letting the new cast branch out into some exciting new things we haven't seen before.


    2. No new trilogy. Kind of a boring option, and I hope we don't even up without a trilogy. But I suppose it's possible, especially since the ST supposedly put the bow on the Skywalker saga. We have D+ for shows, and Rogue Squadron imply that SW may be eyeing standalone titles for a while.

    The biggest thing that makes me think that this may not happen is money, really.

    3. A new trilogy in the far past. A new trilogy in the Old Republic era, but still given the numbered convention of Ep10-12. I suppose that if it tied itself thematically and narratively to the main saga well enough, this could happen.

    And there's no doubt that many fans want something along the lines of KOTOR. Though I will say that a movie in that period would somewhat complicate the biggest advantage KOTOR had, which was the ability to have a more malleable setting to mess around in. With how seriously LFL takes canon, this could be a problem, given the KOTOR remake coming.


    4. . A new trilogy in the far future. Following up on the galaxy in decades or centuries, we could see what happened to Rey's new order of Jedi. It also would let us have the galaxy breathe for a bit after TROS without another massive generational war, which is nice. Honestly, this might be my favorite idea of all.

    This series could really delve into the themes of individualism, identity, and legacy that the ST covered, too. Supposed Skywalker descendants might walk the halls of the jedi academy- some doing their ancestor proud, some clinging to their privilege like a Malfoy brat. Then you could have other force users, those who just appeared as the galaxy began to accept the Jedi again. Could be a great way to grant homage to a lot of what happened in the PT-ST without really requiring a Mandalorian level of cameos, too.
