James Mangold, who directed Logan, and Dave Filoni, who co-created The Mandalorian, will be in charge of the two next movies and the 2008 computer-animated film Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Kennedy said that while Filoni’s film will “close out the interconnected stories told in The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, Ahsoka, and other Disney+ series,”.
Mangold’s film will “tell the story of the first Jedi to wield the Force and harness it as a liberating power in an era of disorder and oppression.”

The series takes place during the same time as “The Mandalorian.” Ahsoka Tano, a former apprentice of Anakin Skywalker, is the focal point. (Rosario Dawson).
After meeting Din Djarin in the second season of “The Mandalorian,” she declined to train Grogu (also known as Baby Yoda), and she is currently on the hunt for notorious Imperial commander Grand Admiral Thrawn.
Third Star Wars movie rumored for a while, but can’t seem to get off the ground due to departures and changes of direction

Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson have reportedly been replaced as writers on the project by Peaky Blinders’ Steven Knight.
According to reports, separate projects overseen by Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige and Wonder Woman filmmaker Patty Jenkins have been put on hold.
While a different project from director Taika Waititi of Thor: Love and Thunder and co-writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns of 1917 is still in the works.
The second season of Andor and the Mandalorian spin-off Ahsoka were among the new Star Wars television projects that Lucasfilm revealed at the same event.
