What’s Going on with the Next 3 STAR WARS Movies?

It will be the first of three new, now untitled Star Wars entries that will release on the pre-Christmas weekend every other year.

Starting with Cameron, Avatar 2, originally meant to open on December 18, 2020, has been pushed back an entire year to December 17, 2021.

Then we have 2021, which, aside from "Avatar 2" on December 17, 2021, is the year of untitled films.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker lands in the United Kingdom on December 19.

Meanwhile, the next Star Wars film, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, will land in just a few months on December 20. In the holiday corridor for 2020, Fox's West Side Story adaptation, directed by Steven Spielberg, will debut Dec. 18 in the pre-Christmas slot, with Disney's Cruella opening Wednesday, Dec. 23, for the long holiday weekend.

The upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker won't be the end of the franchise.

The other three sequels will follow every two years, with Avatar 5 completing the five-film series in 2027.

Get your popcorn buckets ready - Disney has a packed slate of films through December 2027. Here we sit in 2019 and the film remains unreleased - and now it's been delayed again.

Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were tapped previous year to create their own trilogy of Star Wars movies.

Disney's slate also includes two MCU movies for 2020, three for 2021, and three for 2022, with titles likely to be announced later this year.

However, Kennedy also added, "And we're taking the time to really look at where this is going from the standpoint of a saga".
