It Sounds Like We're Getting A New STAR WARS Trilogy Featuring The Same Cast Of Characters

Lucasfilm is finally plotting out what comes next for the Star Wars franchise following the release of J.J. Abrams' Episode IX and it appears as if we can expect some familiar faces to remain...

We know that there are still a number of Star Wars spinoffs in the works (including a movie revolving around Obi-Wan Kenobi) but what comes after Star Wars Episode IX in 2019? Well, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has now revealed that the studio is currently in the process of planning the next ten years worth of films and it appears as if the focus will remain on the franchise's new cast of heroes.

"We’re sitting down now, we’re talking about the next ten years of Star Wars stories, and we’re looking at narratively where that might go," Kennedy says below. "Future stories beyond Episode IX with these new characters: Rey, Poe, Finn, BB-8. But we’re also looking at working with people that are interested in coming into the Star Wars world and taking us to places that we haven’t been yet. And that’s exciting too because its a vast galaxy far, far away, so the possibilities are endless."

Harrison Ford's Han Solo is obviously dead and Carrie Fisher's General Leia is expected to be written out of the Star Wars Universe with The Last Jedi this December. Assuming Luke Skywalker is also killed off at some point, it makes sense that this series is going to go to some new places with the focus remaining on the younger cast of characters. What direction could that new trilogy take, though?

It's hard to say but they'd no doubt all be surrounded by many more new heroes and villains and the Skywalker Saga could live on through Kylo Ren given who his mother is! We'll have to wait and see!
