Work has already started on Episode IX with a working title of Black Diamond, and a beginning shooting date of June 18, 2018, and a release date to theaters of December 20, 2019, which matches the release dates of Episodes VII and VIII, but is a pushed back date from the original release date of May, 2019.

Nissan has come out with several models themed to the Star Wars Universe. For any number of reasons, I'm personally not interested in buying one, but I am interested in how well they'll sell.

2018
Solo : a Star Wars Story.
It is best described in 3 words "gangsters in space."
I don't know how people will take to that, but--personally--I am glad they are trying something new at Lucas Films, and not going with the same-o, same-o, and the release date for that one is May or May 25, 2018.

More news as it becomes available.

Solo : a Star Wars Story.

We should have some more info about this, including a trailer, sometime later this month. When is the Super Bowl this year?

And what is Star Wars without John Williams. John Williams is writing the music for the film.

Episode IX

Each one teach one.
Obi Wan - Luke
Luke - Rey
Rey - Broom Boy. "The Force is strong in that one." At the end of Episode VIII, you'll see him manipulate his broom with what can only be called the Force.

I won't be adverse to seeing more of him in Episode IX. For when it comes to the books and comic books, I find the characters as children and the new child characters far more interesting than the characters as adults and the new adult characters--for the most part.

More as it becomes available.

Kenobi : a Star Wars Story
Ewan McGregor has been seen taking on physical training, which some have seen as proof that he's going to reprise his role as Obi Wan Kenobi in a solo film. The film taking place between Episode III and Episode IV,

Solo : a Star Wars Story
One of the most anticipated films of 2018. This according to the folks at Fandango.
Supposedly, part Mad Max, part western, part . . . Remember the Pyke Syndicate from the animated TV series The Clone Wars. They're b-a-a-c-c-k! Or, so it is said.
And supposedly, like nothing one has seen ere. I know some folks are upset at the direction Star Wars is going. I am not one of those folks. Though, how long I will not be upset is anybody's guess. I am just taking the Star Wars films one film at a time.

Episode VIII
Blu-ray out March 22, 2017. And I suppose the dvd will be, too.
When Luke (Mark Hamill) 1st appears on Crait, 3 little heads pop up from the trench. Those 3 little heads are Mark's children.

A lot of space to cover.

Star Wars : Secrets of the Empire
If you want to see the one in London (England,) then it closes March 7, 2018. No word as to whether the ones in Anaheim (California) and Lake Buena Vista (Florida) will remain open or close at the same time. I am surprised it is closing so early, as the reviews have been mostly positive from grown men near tears after their experience to "I was in Star Wars.--That's good.--You don't get it. I WAS IN STAR WARS!") While we won't see it as part of theme park rides and attractions, because of problems, it could lead to what is known as hyper reality in theme parks rides and attractions.

Continuing . . .

Kenobi : a Star Wars Story
It is on. Film location scouts have been seen at Joshua Tree National Park, and they would not be there unless there were plans to make a film featuring Obi Wan Kenobi. The most likely release date is 2020.

What we do know
Who: Ewan McGregor as Kenobi. At least, he has expressed interest in reprising the role.
Where: Tatooine
When: some time between Episodes III and IV.

What we do know know
Who: will play young Luke Skywalker
How: the film will be written so it does not contradict everything we already know.

Solo: a Star Wars Story
What is Star Wars without John Williams. So, John Williams is writing the score for the film.

And while we have yet to get an "official trailer" for the film. (When is the Super Bowl again?) Or, maybe not. We have gotten an "official synopsis," which has been posted to the world wide web. No surprises there.

Episode VIII
It has been confirmed that Princes William and Harry had cameos in the film. What is still questionable is whether their scene made it into the film or was left on the proverbial "cutting room floor," as were several other scenes, which were shot and not seen in the final cut of the film. Though, I imagine that any scenes shot and not used will be part of the bonus features in the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release in March, 2018. The film's novelization, which will be out on March 6, 2018, will also feature deleted scenes.

Episode X-XII
We will be getting another trilogy.

What we know.
It will not feature any Solos or Star walkers.
That all 3 episodes will be written by the same person, and that while it was thought, that he'd direct all three episodes. Now he'll direct only Episode X and 2 more directors will be brought in to direct Episodes XI and XII.

What we do know.
It'll be set in the days of the Old Republic. It'll not be set in the days of the Old Republic. Thus, we do not know when it'll be set. Nor do we even know whether it'll feature any Jedi.
When they'll be released. Most likely not to 2021 and maybe not even then, as there is to be a concentration on solo stand-alone films instead of episodic films. With at least an Yoda film said to be on the way and maybe even a Boba Fett film if they can resolve the problems that film seems to have.

TV Shows
If you want to put your stamp on the series, then Lucas Films is looking for an episodic director for an animated show set somewhere and sometime in the Star Wars Universe.  The production to begin this summer for release to TV in 2019 or after the current animate show runs its course. That is the animated show, as we are still getting hints that there might be a live action Star Wars show on the way, as well.

And we will see what we will see.

Star Wars : Secrets of the Empire
While the one in London (U.K.) is closing on March 9, 2018, there are others opening up. Apparently, including one in Las Vegas (Nevada.)

Frankly, it is not my thing, as I am too much of an individualist to participate in a group activity, but, if one has 3 friends who are Star Wars fanatics, it is suggested one give it a try, as the bonding experience with friends is said to be like few others. And I might add that passing over the lava fields is a good place to snuggle up next to your snuggle bunny.

And pay attention to what one sees, as it is said, what one sees here, may be later seen in future Star Wars stories.

There is also a new secret project coming. Is it the Marvel experience with Marvel characters, one keeps hearing about? As the word is from the man who wrote this story, it is probably a new Star Wars story.

So pay your $30.00 and get your 15 minutes of fame and fortune.

Solo : a Star Wars Story
Sometime this old man knows what he is talking about. He said there'd be a trailer shown during the Super Bowl, and he was correct.

George Lucas may be dipping his toe back in the directorial pool. While Ron Howard is the director of note for the film, it is said that Lucas helped in directing it. And with Ron there, can Clint be far behind? Apparently, Clint Howard will have a role in the film.

Look for cameos for characters from other Star Wars stories. So far it has been suggested that . . .
Thall Jebsen -- Sara Staros -- and Jabba the Hutt
will make cameo appearances in the film.

It has also been suggested that this film will feature the 1st gay character to be seen in a Star Wars film. No idea who it might be, except it is suppose to be a canon character.

New TV shows
1 animated show, which is a given.
+1 live action show. The subject, which keeps popping up, is the underworld on Coruscant.
+1 or 2 more shows.

The good news is that . . .
they'll be airing sometime in 2019.

The bad news is that . . .
one will have to "koff" "koff" up money to see them, as they are expected to air on the House of Mouse's new streaming service in 2019.

New films
2 new films every other year in an 1 year time span. And if you can understand what they mean by that, then one is doing better than he is doing.

I don't know how I feel about this, as I can't take the show seriously, but the show runners for Game of Thrones (GOT) have been assigned  by Lucas Films to come up with a new trilogy set in the Star Wars Universe. The time most often mentioned, because it is so similar to (GOT) is the Old Republic.

The Boba Fett film is apparently back on track. If it is, as has been suggested, The 7 Magnificent Bounty Hunters, then he is down with that.

There is romance in the stratosphere. Depending when the film is set, it's either the Empire and the Rebellion or the 1st Order and the Resistance. That idea is not so far fetched as it may seem. For if one is familiar with Claudia Gray's Lost Stars, which has been well received and highly regarded, the writer has already dealt with that subject. Thus, if the film can do something similar . . .?

Apparently, Lucas Film is looking for a female director to direct the film, if it is ever made.

And he keeps thinking there is a solo Yoda film on the way.

Episode VIII
Despite some people's desire for it to fail, it has done well, so far, at the Oscars, receiving 4 nominations.
original score -- sound effects -- sound mixing -- and visual effects.
That may not seem like a lot, but it is better than most of the Star Wars films to date, which we'll get to next time.

As it has also done relatively well at the box office. Becoming the 13th highest grossing film in the history of films, to date, at the international box office.

Episode IX
Much to his surprise, Snoke may be back. At least, his back story is suppose to come out, and over the upcoming months, more of his back story will be reveal in future novels and graphic novels.

More as it becomes available.
