    Back in the 70's I stood in line for over 2 hrs. to see Star Wars at the UA 150 Cinema in Seattle. It was so worth it! I had no idea this would go on for over 4 decades, but it seems the end of Star Wars is not far off, as the last installment will hit the screens soon.

    Do you seriously think that Disney will let the franchise die?

    They just spent enough to run a small country on the newest "Land" @ Disney World, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, with two new attractions, "Millenium Falcon: Smuggler's Run" and "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance".

    You can bet they're spending money right now exploring a new SW trilogy. This is going to go on until the end of time.

    Actually they alraedy have spin off versions out..Han and Rogue One.

    I don't think there will be new installations of the main plot, but there are alot of sub-plots to explore.

    Yep. Solo and Rogue One. Both of them were awesome in explaining details of the canon we've only heard about up to now. I hope the quality stays high as they start to explore new Star Wars stories we've never heard of. The SW universe is quite rich.

    And as we've seen from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, as well as all three SW trilogies, the film trilogy is a money maker, and they know it.

    But my point is that, now that Disney has the franchise, they are not ever going to let it go. The franchise is by no means "nearing the end".

    Of this trilogy.

    Three interconnected movies is a trilogy. This will be the third one, so yeah, the end of this trilogy.

    But never fear, there will always be another movie, another trilogy. Disney will make sure of that. They've already invested too much to just drop it.

    I understand that George Lucas's original vision was of one long epic, which he split into 3 sections. He then made the middle section, Episodes 4 to 6 inclusive, being A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.

    The start of his vision the became Episodes 1 to 3, and this latest film will round out the third trilogy, so Episodes 7 to 9.

    As such, the reviews are correct that this ends Lucas's story, but we all know that Disney rule the entertainment industry with a strong grip of finances, so I imagine that we will continue to have offshoots from the Universe.


    Likely would be an underworld story of how Darth Maul became a crime lord, it's been explored in comics before, and we know how much Disney like to make money from comics!

    The first part of the 3rd trilogy is already in development with GoT show runners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

    This was covered in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars (the entire series takes place between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith). His brother's story is nearly as compelling. I understand that 12 episodes of Season 7 have been commissioned and will appear on Disney's new streaming service when it opens in late 2019. From Wikipedia: "Maul will return in season 7 in which he duels Ahsoka Tano during the Siege of Mandalore. He will be portrayed by Ray Park using motion capture."

    I'd love to see it in a live format, though.

    (Note to Self: Time to look up the animated series Star Wars: Rebels, which picks up the story of Darth Maul, later, between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.)

    Do you mean a fourth trilogy?

    Star Wars: IX - The Rise of Skywalker will be released later this year, finishing the third trilogy.

    This is the first I've heard of another trilogy, though.

    Part of me would like to see Star Wars end the way George Lucas envisioned, on the other hand look how long James Bond has lasted.

    Disney have several trilogies in the pipeline.
    The two showrunners that completely destroyed Game of Thrones are set to make three movies with releases in 2022, 2024, and 2026.
    Rian Johnson is also working on a trilogy, but that apparently has been delayed after the Star Wars fandom backlash over The Last Jedi and the poor performance of Solo.

    I my opinion the Star Wars Universe died with the character destruction of Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi.

    As long as these new movies tell new stories. Taking down a shield to destroy a planet destroying weapon has been done to death.
