Is The Rise of Skywalker the last Star Wars movie?

After a long wait of about 10 years, the world was finally gifted with more Star Wars in the form of the sequel trilogy. There, we met characters Rey, Kylo Ren, Finn, Poe and many more in adventures that were being dubbed the final films of the Skywalker saga.

In Lucasfilm’s eyes, the Skywalker saga encompasses all of the main Star Wars films — that means Episodes I-IX. But it does not include the spinoff movies we saw during the sequel trilogy era, which includes Rogue One and Solo.

Still, by 2019, we were met with the final entry in the Skywalker saga, which was The Rise of Skywalker. In that movie, we put a close to the story that began with Anakin, was carried on by Luke, and eventually ended with Rey and Kylo Ren. And, essentially, they all lived happily ever after. Star Wars closed that chapter, and then promptly moved on to greener pastures, such as its television shows The Clone Wars and The Mandalorian.

But just because The Rise of Skywalker is the last film in the Skywalker saga, does that mean it’s the last Star Wars film?

Will there be more Star Wars movies after The Rise of Skywalker?

If you’re a fan of Star Wars films and you want more, there’s good news. While The Rise of Skywalker may be the last Skywalker saga movie, it is by no means the last Star Wars movie. Lucasfilm is taking a small hiatus when it comes to Star Wars films, but they will be back to it in no time!

The first Star Wars movie that’s set to come out is Patty Jenkins’ Rogue Squadron, which is eyeing a December 2023 release. Then there are two movies without solid release dates. We’ll be treated to Taika Waititi’s unnamed Star Wars film at some point. And, from the head of Marvel Studios himself, will come the Kevin Feige-produced Star Wars film as well. Lucasfilm has 2025 and 2027 blocked out for its future Star Wars movies, so we could likely see those two films come out in either of those years.

In the meantime, it should come as no surprise that Lucasfilm has a bucketload of live-action Star Wars TV series to produce. In addition to the continuation of The Mandalorian, we’ll get The Book of Boba FettObi-Wan Kenobi and so much more. And so, these TV shows make it feel like Star Wars was hardly ever gone, even if we go a few years without getting a movie.
