We might be in for a long long line of Star Wars, as the president of Lucasfilm has said that the series could “go on forever.“
If you feel like your feed has been pretty Star Wars filled over the last few days, you’re not alone. Star Wars Celebration was held last week, and there were plenty of reveals and announcements. For one, a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was announced, and it will apparently have a much darker tone.
Plenty of TV was announced too, with The Mandalorian season four already reportedly in development after season three was confirmed. And Liam Neeson will finally be reprising his role as Qui-Gon Jinn in a new animated series. It’s almost like Star Wars will go on for a long, long time, and president of Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy seems to think so too.
what did kennedy say?
At Star Wars Celebration, Kennedy spoke to Variety to talk about some of the plans for the franchise going forward. “We’re continuing to expand on Mandalorian, Ahsoka is the next iteration of that, and then what Jon Watts is doing with his show,” said Kennedy. “It gives us different places on the timeline to look at, because there is this persistent story of Star Wars.
“That’s what we’re building on. So rather than thinking that we’re just going to go do a one-off story, we’re constantly thinking about ‘okay, what does this really mean inside the long saga and mythology that George Lucas created’. So it could go on forever, to be perfectly honest. If we have good storytellers, it will go on forever.”
For some Star Wars fans, the series going on forever is something of a dream. It really does seem like plenty is on the horizon. So even if it isn’t forever, Star Wars is sticking around for a little while longer.
