Just a few days in the past, Disney mysteriously set launch dates for Star Wars movies in 2022, 2024, and 2026. Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss had been engaged on their very own undisclosed Star Wars trilogy and so had The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, so it was actually anybody’s guess which of those two trilogies had been slated for launch.

Disney CEO Bob Iger has since confirmed that it is Benioff and Weiss’ trilogy, which is able to start releasing after a three-year hiatus following this December’s launch of The Rise of Skywalker. So, listed below are 10 Potentialities For Disney’s New Star Wars Trilogy.

Identical to Benioff and Weiss’ personal present Recreation of Thrones is going deep into its own fictional history to broaden the universe with the prequel spin-off The Long Night, some followers have speculated that their Star Wars trilogy might be set during the time of the Old Republic.

This was 4,000 years earlier than the rise of the Galactic Empire, so the flicks would don’t have any compulsory ties to the opposite trilogies just like the sequel trilogy has had. The Jedi and Sith had been nonetheless round again then, and the interval was extensively coated by Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, which is extensively thought-about to be one of the greatest video games ever made.

9 Obi-Wan’s adventures between Episode III and Episode IV

Obi Wan and Baby Luke Star Wars Revenge of the Sith

What made Rogue One a hit and Solo a field workplace bomb was not right down to “Star Wars fatigue” or another buzz phrase. Moviegoers love the Star Wars universe and the escapism it offers, however if you happen to’re going to fill in gaps, be certain they’re gaps that must be stuffed in. Rogue One advised us a key piece of story that was lacking from the start of A New Hope, whereas Solo was roughly a feature film adaptation of an anecdote.

One factor followers are clamoring for is extra of Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan. There’s a whole lot of time between his hiding in Tatooine on the age of Ewan McGregor on the finish of Episode III and his call back into adventure at the age of Alec Guinness at first of Episode IV. It’s simply screaming to be made right into a film.

8 Jabba the Hutt’s rise and fall

As quickly as Disney introduced they’d be making “Star Wars Anthology” spin-off motion pictures, Guillermo del Toro came out with an idea for an epic trilogy about Jabba the Hutt’s rise and fall within the legal underworld, just a little like an intergalactic model of The Godfather or Scarface.

Del Toro has been stiffed on a cinematic trilogy earlier than, having his preliminary imaginative and prescient for a two-part Hobbit film taken from him and dragged out right into a trilogy by New Line and Peter Jackson. So, perhaps Lucasfilm has taken his pitch on board and given it to Benioff and Weiss to write down. They haven’t been introduced to be directing this trilogy – perhaps the large announcement might be that del Toro is helming it from their scripts.

7 A bounty hunter being skilled by Boba Fett

For some time now, Disney has been trying to develop a movie about Boba Fett set between the prequel trilogy and the unique trilogy, as he rises by the ranks of the bounty hunter sport to grow to be Darth Vader’s go-to man as we see him The Empire Strikes Again.

However perhaps a extra attention-grabbing story could be a youthful bounty hunter skilled by an previous, grizzled Boba Fett who has escaped from the Sarlacc and survived the occasions of Return of the Jedi. We’d see him tackle an apprentice and prepare him like Dr. Schultz. It might be Django Unchained in house.

6 Younger Yoda

We noticed Yoda, probably the wisest and most powerful Jedi who ever lived, for the final 50 or so years of his life. Within the prequels, he was nonetheless tremendous previous, as a result of they had been solely set a few many years earlier than the unique trilogy. However when he died in Return of the Jedi, he stated he was 900 years previous. That’s 850 years’ value of untold tales. This man was younger sooner or later.

Even when it was a whole bunch of years in the past, Benioff and Weiss might go to some extent within the huge scope of Star Wars historical past and discover a younger Yoda in the midst of an ideological disaster. There’s each probability that, with the Skywalker saga coming to an end and Solo: A Star Wars Story failing at the box office, Disney goes double or nothing and mixing the “Anthology” spin-offs with ongoing trilogies and seeing how a mixture of their two launch methods works out.

5 The Unknown Areas

The galaxy of Star Wars is fairly detailed. There are reams of maps out there and the canon has been absolutely fleshed out. Nonetheless, “the Unknown Regions” stay, nicely, unknown to us. We all know that Palpatine was obsessive about the Unknown Areas and believed them to own some secret Darkish Facet energy that we couldn’t think about.

He constructed a personal observatory on Jakku to keep watch over the “solar storms, rogue magnetospheres, black holes, gravity wells, and things far stranger” that make it just about not possible to map and navigate the Unknown Areas. Maybe this would be the foundation of Benioff and Weiss’ trilogy.

4 The Clone Wars

Star Wars The Clone Wars Movie

The Clone Wars interval had been well-documented in animated TV sequence and even a theatrically released feature film, however we haven’t seen it absolutely realized in live-action on the large display screen. Assault of the Clones touched on it, though all of the clones were created using CGI – and it was primitive 2002 CGI at that – and we didn’t get the load of the battle.

Now that something might be achieved on movie, perhaps it’s time for the definitive cinematic tackle the Clone Wars, with breathtaking visuals, vibrant motion sequences, and Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi in the heat of battle.

3 Episodes X-XII

Disney has repeatedly stated that the core Star Wars saga – i.e. the ones with “Episode” in the title – will finish with The Rise of Skywalker. However what if the “Episode” motion pictures can nonetheless proceed exterior the story of the Skywalker bloodline? In case you’re going to decide to releasing a complete trilogy of movies, then you definately’d higher be sure that individuals are going to need to watch all three of them.

It’s not adequate that they’ll take a look at the primary one to see in the event that they prefer it and maybe give the second and third ones a miss. Making Episodes X by XII is basically the one technique to assure that moviegoers will certainly prove to see them.

2 Star Wars: Underworld

Star Wars: Underworld

When Disney purchased Lucasfilm, Lucas was planning an formidable TV drama referred to as Star Wars: Underworld that will be set between the prequel and unique trilogies. It was stated to be “gritty and dark” in tone, taking affect from the movie noirs of the ‘40s, and set in a “period when the Empire is trying to take things over,” specializing in legal exercise and political struggles.

There have been over 100 episodes deliberate with 50 scripts already written when Disney swooped in and pulled the plug on the present. Since Underworld feels like a Recreation of Thrones tackle the Star Wars universe, perhaps because of this Benioff and Weiss have been employed – to transform these scripts and storylines into an epic GoT-style trilogy.

1 One thing new solely

Lots of people are speaking about Benioff and Weiss’ trilogy as if they’re going to give attention to one thing within the established canon, however there’s an excellent probability they’ll simply create a batch of recent characters and inform a model new story on this fantastic fictional world. Certainly that will be a greater thought than taking one thing that followers have been obsessing over for years and making an attempt to do it justice.

There’s no hurt in creating one thing solely new and letting the followers determine if it’s one thing they’re focused on, with out being tied to the previous. New tales are at all times extra thrilling than rehashing what we as soon as liked anyway.
