Disney has announced the schedule for three new Star Wars movies starting in December 2022, with new films arriving December 2024, and 2026.

No details of the films have been announced – however they are not expected to follow the same storyline that Disney bills as "concluding" with December 20's Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson and Game Of Thrones executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have both signed on to create their own sereies of original Star Wars films, either of which could fit the bill for this new trilogy.

Disney plans to release each film on the pre-Christmas weekend of each respective year – alternating that release weekend with films from James Cameron's Avatar series (now owned by Disney thanks to their purchase of 20th Century Fox) scheduled to release in 2021. 2023, and 2025.
