Fans of Star Wars will be excited to know that Tom Kane thinks there are another nine movies in the works. Kane, who is one of the voice actors in the franchise’s universe, spoke about it today, seemingly confirming the news that Disney is looking to milk the Star Wars cow as much as they can.
Rian Johnson has a trilogy coming up, and DB Weiss and David Benioff both have their own to create. Star Wars 9 begins filming next month, but fans are wondering what they plan on doing for the other installments in the series.
Reportedly, executives aren’t interested in doing a Yoda movie, so, unfortunately, Yoda fans have to cross that one off the list. However, there will be an Obi-Wan Kenobi film as well as one centering around Boba Fett.
No one knows anything about the other movies. Initially, insiders expected that another Solo movie was coming up, but the lackluster performance of the last one probably squashed those plans.
Tom Kane seems to be somewhat in the know but very hesitant to share.. claims there are at least 9 Star Wars films in various stages of development, some individual character stories yet to be announced, but definitely not Yoda. #StarWars #AllStarComicCon

And while Kane is relatively sure there are more movies coming out, LucasFilm hasn’t confirmed if the rumors are true or not. Both the Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi movies haven’t been solidified either.
As it was previously reported, Disney had to course correct following the poor performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Even though the movie had impressive box office numbers, the film’s budget was just too high for them to beat.
Despite many fans being happy to hear about the future installments, some are very skeptical and even worried about what Disney will do to the Star Wars legacy.
Nevertheless, Rian is supposedly interested in continuing on a path that doesn’t include Luke Skywalker. There are enough Star Wars characters for directors and writers to give each person a movie of their own. Hopefully, they’ll do a little bit better than the last film.
