Star Wars to have a 'hiatus' after episode IX

Star Wars to have a 'hiatus' after episode IX

"We have not announced any specific plans for movies thereafter", Iger told Bloomberg.

The hiatus doesn't come as a shock as there are now no Star Wars movies in active production after Episode IX, at least not that we know of.

In all likelihood, Lucasfilm and Disney will debut the first trailer for Episode IX at this panel, giving us a taste of what's to come following the events of The Last Jedi. We will be updating this post with details from the panel as they reveal. "There will be other Star Wars movies, but there will be a bit of a hiatus".

The famed Luke Skywalker actor, who has appeared in five of the 11 films released in the franchise so far, understands that the heyday for the galaxy far, far away may have passed.

Indeed, both Rian Johnson, who made Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and Game of Thrones showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff are working on separate new trilogies. I believe that the first movie of either one of those franchises will only grace the big screen in 2022.

That wasn't the only Star Wars TV series to be discussed at the convention, as fans were given their first glimpse of The Mandalorian. Iger said as far the immediate future is concerned, Lucasfilm will be focusing more on TV projects.

It was also confirmed that the series would be the first of the Star Wars live-action shows to be available to watch on Disney's streaming service, with showrunner Jon Favreau adding that they're now putting the finishing touches on the project. Apart from that, there's also a Cassion Andor series in the works with Diego Luna reprising his role.

We really don't know what to expect, but with just eight months to go until Episode IX hits theaters, we are holding out hope that there will be a ton of new information for Disney and Lucasfilm to share today.
