The newest installation to the Star Wars series is due out in theaters on the 18th of December... Are you ready?

For those of you who haven’t caught up, this series is the first sequel to follow the original Star Wars Trilogy (The other three recent films were all prequels to the Trilogy). Counting on the continued success of the Star Wars series, Disney has announced that, starting with the upcoming Episode VII - The Force Awakens, there is will be a Star Wars movie released each year (at least until 2020). After The Force Awakens, the next film will be Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which is a standalone film. It is set to be released on December 16th, 2016.

Following shortly behind will be Episode VIII (which will be directed by Rian Johnson, who is known for Looper). Episode VIII has a planned release date of May 26th, 2017. This might seem like an odd release date to non Star Wars fans (or those not old enough to remember), but this marks the 40th anniversary of the release of the original Star Wars film, A New Hope.

The following May (May 25th, 2018), Star Wars followers, especially those in the Han Solo fan club, will be rewarded with a Han Solo film. There is also a Boba Fett movie planned, but after running into a few problems, no updates have been made regarding it. However, Star Wars fans will still be rewarded with annual movies as Episodes IX and X will be released in 2019 and 2020, respectively.

The Star Wars series is, so far, as follows:

  • Episode I - The Phantom Menace
  • Episode II - Attack of the Clones
  • Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
  • Episode IV - A New Hope
  • Episode V - The Emperor Strikes Back
  • Episode VI - Return of the Jedi
  • Episode VII - The Force Awakens
  • Episode VIII - ?
  • Episode IX - ??
  • Episode X - ???
