With two more Star Wars episodes and at least three spinoff / anthology films on the way, it’s hard to think too much about the future of the franchise beyond that, though we have been curious about Disney and Lucasfilm’s plans for the future of the series after Episode IX hits theaters in 2019. Will there be more sequels? A new trilogy? More spinoffs? According to Disney CEO Bob Iger, Star Wars will continue on after Episode IX, and the studio has no plans to end that other major franchise anytime soon, either.

In addition to the studio’s planned live-action Sword in the Stone, Disney is also developing a film based on The Merlin Saga, and has just hired a screenwriter well-suited for the world of fantasy.

Why BB-8’s Gender Matters in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

It started out as a sort of interesting bit of trivia for Star Wars fans: the adorable new droid first introduced in last year’s teaser for The Force Awakens is actually a girl. BB-8 has already become one of the upcoming film’s most popular characters, and while gendering a robot seems a little silly, it was neat to know that in addition to having Daisy Ridley playing a leading role in the next phase of the Star Wars saga, something as small and seemingly irrelevant as the gender of a droid was being given more nuanced consideration. And that’s when things got complicated.
