This isn't a sign that Star Wars is through gobbling up your money and attention, far from it. This hiatus is merely to help them plan "the next decade of storytelling." We're still getting two new film series from The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson and the dudes behind Game Of Thrones, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. So now might be a good time to invest in angry internet message board stocks.
Plus, it's only the movies that are slowing down. We're still getting multiple Star Wars TV shows in the near future, to say nothing of the various comics and books. In their effort to delight audiences while also attempting to crush Netflix like an insect, Disney's new streaming service already has three Star Wars shows in the works, some of which totally could have been movies. Like The Mandalorian, which comes out in November. Lucasfilm cancelled plans for a Boba Fett movie, but greenlit a series about a dude who looks exactly like Boba Fett. We're also getting a show about Rogue One's Cassian Andor -- hopefully a prequel and not a Weekend At Bernie's-like farce. And instead of the Obi-Wan movie everyone wanted, Ewan McGregor will appear in an Obi-Wan series chronicling the exciting years he spent in an "abandoned" bachelor pad made out of dirt.
