The latest Star Wars Celebration event has brought exciting news for fans, revealing new details about upcoming Disney+ shows and providing insight into the future of the movie side of the franchise. Lucasfilm announced three new Star Wars films, including one featuring the return of Daisy Ridley as Rey.

Taking place 15 years after the events of The Rise of Skywalker, the final movie in the Skywalker saga, the film will focus on Rey as she forms a new Jedi Order. Academy Award winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, known for her work on Ms. Marvel and Saving Face, will direct the movie.

Another film, directed by James Mangold of Logan and Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny fame, will explore the origins of the Force and the Jedi. Set 25,000 years before any other events in the Star Wars universe, this movie promises to take fans to uncharted territory, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

Dave Filoni, a long-time contributor to the Star Wars franchise, will direct a live-action Star Wars movie. Filoni previously directed the 2008 animated film Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and has been heavily involved in recent Disney+ shows like The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, Ahsoka, and Skeleton Crew.

His upcoming movie will connect the stories of these shows and provide a satisfying conclusion to their narratives.
