Some Kind of Star Wars Movie Announcement is Expected in January

The Skywalker Saga may be coming to a close in thirty days, but Lucasfilm isn’t ending the franchise. In addition to several very secret Disney+ series in the works, there will be more Star Wars movies coming.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a Star Wars movie announcement is due in January:

Sources say Kennedy has a film on deck for 2022, but not the one being developed by The Last Jedi filmmaker Rian Johnson. (No announcement is planned until January.) 

This is sooner than many expected, as a lot of fans were thinking that Lucasfilm would wait until Star Wars Celebration next year to reveal new movies. But if THR is correct, we’ll learn some details not long after The Rise of Skywalker.

Back in May, Disney officially announced three untitled Star Wars movies:

December 16, 2022
December 20, 2024
December 18, 2026

While some people might think the 2022 movie was cancelled when the Game of Thrones duo left; the date was still included on the official release schedule that Disney released to the media just a few days ago. That 2022 movie could be what they’re revealing.
