Kathleen Kennedy Teases Plans For The Current STAR WARS Trilogy's Characters Beyond THE RISE OF SKYWALKER

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy teases plans for the current trilogy's characters beyond The Rise of Skywalker, and points to trilogies being a thing of the past. Find out more details after the jump!

There's a lengthy new profile on Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy over at the Los Angeles Times, and she's dropped some very interesting details about what comes next for Star Wars

For starters, she reportedly confirmed that key decisions about the franchise will be made in the coming weeks and that while the "Skywalker Saga" is ending, there are no plans to "abandon the characters" who were created in the latest trilogy (which ends this week with The Rise of Skywalker). 

Kennedy noted that Lucasfilm is also planning to move beyond trilogies, which sounds like it could be a smart move for the studio. "I think it gives us a more open-ended view of storytelling and doesn’t lock us into this three-act structure," she said. "We’re not going to have some finite number and fit it into a box. We’re really going to let the story dictate that."

That could mean what we've been hearing about plans for new trilogies has changed. After all, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss had to pass on their Star Wars movies because it would have been too time-consuming now they have a deal with Netflix, and if Lucasfilm commits to three films and the first one flops, it will be difficult for them to then recover from that. 

Whether this means standalone stories or something different remains to be seen, but Kennedy has previously pointed to some announcements coming in the New Year so we'll see.
