Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm, has revealed how future Star Wars films will be decided upon.
With Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker just around the corner, we are not quite ready to think about the future of the franchise but pretty close. After all, this is the end of the Skywalker Saga so fans are eager to know what comes next.
Well, in a recent interview with the New York Times (via ComicBook.com), Kennedy revealed how Lucasfilm will decide upon future Star Wars stories:
“It’s not as though we have nothing to dip into, but all it is, really, are road posts, pointing us in a direction. You don’t spend a lot of time defining what it is that George Lucas intimates in this mythology. You tell stories about people, and you take the mythology and apply it to their conflict.”
The future of Star Wars is certainly going to be interesting to watch unfold, especially with the arrival of Disney+ and how that will change the game. For now, at least, Episode IX is only a week away.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker sees J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) directing a cast that includes Star Wars veterans Daisy Ridley (Rey), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Kelly Marie Tran (Rose Tico), Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca), Billie Lourd (Lieutenant Connix), Greg Grunberg (Snap Wexley), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian) and Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa) as well as new additions Naomi Ackie (Lady Macbeth), Richard E. Grant (Logan), Dominic Monaghan (Lost), and Keri Russell (The Americans).
