With The Last Jedi being universally heralded as the greatest Star Wars movie of all time, and Solo an inarguably runaway critical and commercial success, Disney has shown no indication of slowing this gravy train down, upping their production slate to match the MCU’s 2-3 movies per year. Here are some of the projects in the pipeline at Lucasfilm:
The Fast and the Furious: Mos Eisley Drift: A Star Wars Story
Vin Diesel stars as an undercover Imperial Intelligence officer who must infiltrate a gang of podracers suspected of smuggling spice for the Hutts.
It’s a Parent Trap!: A Star Wars Story
A young Admiral Ackbar meets his long-lost identical twin brother at summer camp, and then the pair teams up to get their estranged parents back together.
Little Orphan Ani: A Star Wars Story
A musical about a plucky young orphan named Ani who lives on Tatooine under the oppressive care of the demanding and unpleasant Ms. Watto Hannigan, only to be adopted by the wealthy Qui-Gonn Warbucks and trained to become a Jedi.
A Boy and His Rancor: The Musical: A Star Wars Story
James Corden stars as Malakili, the scene-stealing rancor keeper from Return of the Jedi, in this musical about a man who loved his rancor and hated shirts.
It remains to be seen whether any of these movies will rival the unbridled success of The Last Jedi or Solo, but what we can say for certain is this; they couldn’t possibly be any worse than a crowdfunded The Last Jedi remake.
