Star Wars may get more sequels after its ninth episode

Set prior to the events of the original Star Wars trilogy, the now untitled picture is slated for release on May 25, 2018.

When Disney shelled out an eye-watering amount of money for LucasFilm a few years back, it was pretty clear that they'd have a blueprint for longevity that would include a hell of a lot more than just a new trilogy.

Last month, a poorly worded turn of phrase from Disney CEO Bob Iger set Star Wars fans ablaze, anxious that the Han Solo spinoff movie would be about the young smuggler "getting his name".

Those are the best office supplies we have ever seen.

Speaking to MTV in a video released on their Facebook page, Kennedy reaffirmed that the Han Solo movie wouldn't see how Han Solo got his name but, more than likely, how the galaxy came to know about the smuggling ne'er-do-well. My hope would be sometime around the summer.

Asked when the next spin-off movie may be announced, she said: "I think we're getting close".

As far as the numbered sequels go, it is planned to be a trilogy much like the two trilogies before them. And since Han Solo will be the next spinoff to hit theaters in 2018, we'd love for the 2020 Star Wars release to be a new, untold story before maybe seeing what Boba Fett's up to in 2022.

"You'll also discover how he got his name", he said.

The film stars Alden Ehrenreich as the young Han Solo Donald Glover as the young Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotomo as Chewbacca, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Michael K. Williams and Woody Harrelson as Beckett, the young Solo's mentor.
