Star Wars: Disney Confirms New Standalone Movie For 2020

The Star Wars universe continues to expand.

Another standalone movie is in the works, according to Deadline.

Disney CEO Bob Iger made the announcement during an investors meeting last week.


Not much is known about the previously unannounced project except, a writer has been hired and the film is slated for 2020.

Iger said he recently heard a pitch from the director of the Star Wars movie set to be released in 2019.

Between the original series and the standalone movies, there are five upcoming movies.

We have Rogue One in December, Episode VIII in 2017, a Han Solo movie in 2018, Episode IX in 2019 and this movie in 2020. Whew!

Speculation is circulating around the subject of the film. Obi-Wan Kenobi? Boba Fett? Looks like we’ll have to wait and see.

The upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December 16, 2016.
