Lucasfilm is expected to announce who will direct the 2022 Star Wars movie sometime this month, but now we may know what the new movies will be about.
According to MakingStarWars, who has a stellar track record when it comes to Star Wars, the new movies will be set in the “High Republic” era:
Sources are saying the next Star Wars Saga is going to take place during an era called “The High Republic” era. It sounds like the setting is 400 years before The Skywalker Saga. This new saga is set during a time that the Sith’s “Rule of Two” has been established by Darth Bane, and Yoda is a Jedi, but isn’t the old Jedi we know from the Skywalker era.
Jason goes on to say that these will be the movies that the Game of Thrones creators would’ve developed, but it won’t be a trilogy. Instead these will stories set in the same era, and interconnect. It sounds a lot like a Marvel Cinematic Universe approach to Star Wars, and that’s a real cool way to take the franchise following the end of The Skywalker Saga.
