The recently-announced Star Wars film set fifteen years after The Rise of Skywalker from director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and writer Steven Knight has been skedded for release.
Disney announced today that the untitled film will hit theaters December 2026.
In the new film, Daisy Ridley will reprise he role as Rey Skywalker, this time attempting to populate the galaxy with a new race of Jedis.
While speaking to IGN recently, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy shared some new details on the story.
“Well we’re 15 years out from Rise of Skywalker, so we’re post-war, post-First Order, and the Jedi are in disarray,” Kennedy confirmed. “There’s a lot of discussion around, ‘Who are the Jedi? What are they doing? What’s the state of the galaxy?’ She’s attempting to rebuild the Jedi Order, based on the books, based on what she promised Luke, so that’s where we’re going.”
Two other Star Wars films announced at the event are a James Mangold (Logan) directed movie about the first Jedi and another from Dave Filoni that will continue after the events of Disney+’s “The Mandalorian”.
Further, two separate Star Wars movies will land May 22, 2026 and Dec. 17, 2027. Disney hasn’t announced anything about those two flicks.
