The release of J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens in December 2015 kicked off a string of Star Wars stories planned by Disney and LucasFilm that will allow several other inventive storytellers to play in this particular sandbox -- sometimes continuing the trilogy started by Abrams, and sometimes branching out to tell what once were known as Anthology stories, but now might not be the case.

You've worn down your Blu-ray of The Force Awakens. You've been to the theaters time and again to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. You are dying to see the NEXT Star Wars movie. How long do you have to wait? We've got you covered:

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

J.J. Abrams passes the Star Wars baton to Rian Johnson, who will continue to develop the story that began in The Force Awakens. Knowing what we know from Force, Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson) and Snoke (Andy Serkis) will continue to make life difficult for Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega) and ace pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac). Benicio Del Toro has snagged a big antagonist role, and Laura Dern plays an important part. But what part will Luke Skywalker play in the developing sequel, now subtitled The Last Jedi? From what we are hearing, it will be MUCH larger... but it HAS to be, right?

Release Date: December 15, 2017

Star Wars Han Solo Movie Cast

The Han Solo Movie

After the success of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Disney's plans to move ahead with a solo Han Solo movie, and they've hired a few creative voices to guide the ship. Lawrence Kasdan will co-write the script with his son, Jon, while 21 Jump Street and The LEGO Movie wizards Phil Lord and Chris Miller will share the director's chair. They have hired Alden Ehrenreich to play the lead smuggler, and if you saw him in Hail, Caesar!, you know that's a great choice. The rest of the cast includes Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.

Release Date: May 25, 2018

Supreme Leader Snoke

Star Wars: Episode IX

All we know about Star Wars: Episode IX is that it will conclude the trilogy started in The Force Awakens, and it will be helmed by Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow. He'll have access to Force stars like Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, though whom else sticks around for the duration of the story is beyond us, at this moment.

Release Date: May 23, 2019

Boba Fett

A Boba Fett Movie

This is another one that has been rumored for some time, but complications behind the scenes led to a director change, and now the spinoff movie rests in limbo. Seeing as how the next three years have their assigned Star Wars movies mapped out, a Boba Fett film likely would be bumped to 2020. But there have been no powerful moves on this as of yet, and there's even been talk of an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie with Ewan McGregor back in the role, so stay tuned to see what develops.

Release Date: Rumored for 2020
