It's been 36 years, and Star Wars isn't even close to running out of steam. I think it's a safe bet to say that this universe will continue to resonate with people for a very long time. Disney knows this, and I'm sure they intend to keep making Star Wars films well into the next decade and beyond. We know that we're getting a new trilogy taking place Post-ROTJ, we know we're getting spinoff films. Thus, a new era has been established for the Star Wars films. But what will happen next? If a Sequel Trilogy is a logical and relatively conservative first step for Disney, then what will happen after they've dipped their toes in the water? My guess is that: A) They will continue the story with episodes X,XI,and XII, turning Star Wars into a James Bond-ish never ending chronicle of the Skywalker clan, or B) They will press the "reset" button on the series and, without erasing the pre-existing film canon, start completely anew and use the framework of the universe to create totally fresh experiences. Personally, I'm hoping for the latter. I'm thrilled for the sequel trilogy, but I don't want the episodes to be never-ending, because they were never meant to be. Extending 3 films past ROTJ is already stretching the intended life of the saga, any more would dilute GL's vision completely. But, similar to the trajectory of superhero films growing increasingly experimental in the past 10 years, I'd like to think Disney will have the guts and vision (or hire someone who does) to do something truly fresh and game-changing with the franchise. I know it hurts the brain to try and think that far ahead when we hardly know anything about the ST era films as it is, but I wanna hear all y'all's thoughts regardless. Tap into your inner Yoda. What do you see this franchise becoming?
