Lucasfilm Announces Three New STAR WARS Movies in Development With Directors

Right now Star Wars Celebration is happening in the U.K. and Lucasfilm has finally announced their live action film plans which include not one, not two, but three new films. Also part of this announcement is the directors of each, as well as a tease of what each movie will entail.

First, will be director James Mangold's movie which is already titled STAR WARS: DAWN OF THE JEDI. This film will take place thousands of years before the Skywalker Saga during the Old Republic Era. Mangold teased his Star Wars film will feature the very first Jedi and the discovery and first use of The Force.

Next up will be director Dave Filoni who will helm a Star Wars movie based within the timeline of THE MANDALORIAN timeline. This appears to possibly be a big crossover event of all the current Star Wars series set within this timeline and it was teased the film will culminate with the conflict between the Imperial Remnant and the New Republic.

Finally, the third Star Wars movie will take place 15 years after the events of STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER and see actress Daisy Ridley reprising her role as Rey Skywalker. This film will be directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and has the title STAR WARS: NEW JEDI ORDER. It will see Rey training the next generation of Jedi.

No further information was provided except to say these three films are all in development, but no release dates have been set for any of them at the moment.
