Information has been relatively scarce on the future of the Star Wars franchise aside from the fact that we’ll be getting Episode IX later this year and The Mandalorian series by Jon Favreau. Of course, there has been some reports in regards to the franchise but the mixed fan reception of The Last Jedi along with the underwhelming box-office receipts of Solo: A Star Wars Story may have altered the direction for the long-running series.
However, the franchise is still going strong and there has been more reports recently for the future of the franchise with Rian Johnson and Game of Thrones co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss apparently working on a series of films. We don’t know (for certain) where those might go or if they would feature anyone from the sequel trilogy but it looks like some of these younger faces from the recent films may see their stories explored even further… if this latest report is true.
It looks like the characters of Finn, Poe Dameron, Lando Calrissian and Qi’ra may be getting their own spin-offs that will air on Disney’s upcoming streaming platform Disney+. This report comes from We Got This Covered claiming that Lucasfilm is planning to develop four new series surrounding these characters. The projects are reportedly in early stages of development and would likely only pick up steam once Episode IX is out. Take into account that this hasn’t been confirmed by Lucasfilm or Disney so for now, it’s best to mark it as a rumor.
The streaming platform will be available in late 2019 and it looks like Disney has some big plans for it involving the long running franchise. Finn and Poe are pretty cool characters and there are some cool things you can explore especially for Poe cause he’s awesome as f–k. As for Lando (Most likely Solo Lando), I’d like him to remain untouched as his story has been fine the way it is but hell, I’m not Disney. Qi’ra on the other hand has potential to deliver something interesting especially after (spoiler alert for Solo) that Darth Maul cameo near the end of the film. We don’t know how true this is but it’s cool to get some word on where the franchise is going.
