Aaron Goins of the Star Wars Bookworms podcast happened to catch Tom Kane (notably, the voice of Yoda in the Clone Wars and Rebels cartoons) on a panel at All-Star Comic Con this past weekend, and Tom said during the panel that there are at least nine Star Wars movies in development at Lucasfilm right now, including character movies that have yet to be announced, but a Yoda movie is not among them. let’s take a look at what could be included in that count, and how many movies that means are still in the works to surprise us…
The video below has the main topical content of the episode, and the audio version above has additional material!
I was a heavy Star Wars action figure collector growing up (still am lol) but I got tired of seeing the same figure in different gear – 20 Luke, 10 Leia and so on. I feel the same with the movies. It time to move away from the classic characters and explore the vast numbers of others. Such as Mandalorians – like where are they? Yuuzhan Vong would make a scary trilogy. My personal favorites Thrawn and Mara Jade – even if she’s from Legends. I would love to see these characters brought to life on screen. I would also like a movie based on the Empires POV and their buildup to war against the Rebels – which by the way in Solo, my eyes were wide when they showed a destroyer being built over Corellia, more of that please!
Hi Wally – thanks for the comment! I’m thinking/hoping that what we’re going to get from Rian Johnson and from the Game of Thrones guys is exactly that – something away from those classic characters. It’s time for some new classics!
