    Shortly after Disney acquired Lucasfilm back in October 2012, a new trilogy of episodic Star Wars movies was announced, with the new movies being released in 2015, 2017, and 2019. The company also announced they would be developing spin-off movies that would be released in between. That was the last time we heard of a slate of Star Wars projects being announced. Since then, rumors and reports have been hot for a while, but most of them faded into the background.



    It looks like some clarification on the future of Lucasfilm projects and Star Wars releases could be coming to us as soon as this Thursday, December 10. In a new article released by Deadline in which veteran film journalists Peter Bart and Mike Fleming  go at it discussing last week's Earth-shattering news that WB will be releasing their entire 2021 theatrical schedule simultaneously on HBO Max and in theaters, it was said:

    Before continuing, we should point out announced Star Wars projects that are still lingering in the announcement stage, including a new slate of dates for unspecified Star Wars movies was announced in May of 2019, which were delayed an entire year this summer potentially due to the COVID-19 pandemic.



    Rian Johnson was also given an entire trilogy of original movies that would begin filming as soon as Knives Out was theatrically released. That official report came out a month and a half before The Last Jedi came out (November 2017), and Knives Out came out a year ago. A sequel to the whodunit is now in development, but no word on his Star Wars trilogy.



    David Benioff and D. B. Weiss were also getting their own series of films, but after the Game of Thrones series finale, and reported creative disagreements with Lucasfilm, the pair departed the project for a lucrative deal with Netflix. And we could go on and on about James Mangold, Josh Trank, and other projects that were in development but never saw the light of day.

    Earlier this year, it was officially announced that Academy Award-winner Taika Waititi would be directing and co-writing (along with Krysty Wilson-Cairns) his own Star Wars movie, but the release date was not mentioned. A bit earlier than that, it was reported Russian Doll showrunner Leslye Headland would be creating her own Disney+ Star Wars series. Some fans may have also forgotten that back in February it was also reported that J. D. Dillard and Matt Owens would be developing a project as well.



    This season of The Mandalorian could have set up as many as two spin-off shows, one centered around Ahsoka Tano, played by Rosario Dawson, and another one that is reportedly in development and on the verge of shooting, centered around Boba Fett. Temuera Morrison just revealed in an interview that he doesn't know anything about the future of Fett in the Star Wars galaxy, so he is either being coy, not involved (unlikely), or reports of a Boba Fett series are inaccurate.



    Whatever the case, we will hopefully have a better idea about the future of Star Wars content on Thursday, when Disney's Investor Day happens (4.30 pm ET/1.30 pm PT).

    I honestly hope it's just more details about already-announced projects.

    I'm where I was with DC films a few years back. At this point, unless a Star Wars project is in active production, I don't have any hope that it's happening.

    I'm casually optimistic for a couple of them, even if they haven't been confirmed yet, but I do realize that plans can often change. But hopefully we'll get some clear answers soon. Thursday can't come quick enough. :)

    If Disney goes the conservative route with minimal reveals, we should expect to hear: Bad Batch (first half 2021) Cassian (mid-later half 2021) and Kenobi (end 2021). All of these will be on Disney+.

    If Disney brings us an early Christmas surprise with a wealth of information, we may also hear about:
    any future films, details on the Leslie Hyland project, announced Boba Fett on Disney+, announced Ahsoka on Disney+.
