Veteran ‘Star Wars’ Actor Claims There Are 9 ‘Star Wars’ Movies In Development Right Now

The most recent film Solo being the worst-rated Star Wars movie since Attack of the Clones and is shaping up to be the lowest-grossing live-action Star Wars movie even sans any inflation or reissues. Despite the heavily disappointing performance at the box office by Solo (which cost $400 million and is estimated to barely recoup that money at the box office) there is allegedly nine Star Wars movies in development. This is what happens when Disney spends $4.05 billion to acquire Lucasfilm and wants to recuperate that exorbitant amount of money.

According to longtime Star Wars voice actor Tom Kane, there are at least nine Star Wars movies in various stages of development right now. Included in those projects are individual character stories, but sadly Yoda is not one of them. Star Wars Bookworms podcast host Aaron Goins posted the news on Twitter.

“Tom Kane seems to be somewhat in the know but very hesitant to share.. claims there are at least 9 Star Wars films in various stages of development, some individual character stories yet to be announced, but definitely not Yoda. #StarWars #AllStarComicCon.”

Kane is a veteran voice actor has worked on over 60 Star Wars projects including the voice for Admiral Ackbar in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Kane first provided his talents to the Shadows of the Empire video game in 1996 and as recently as this year in the Star Wars Forces of Destiny TV series.

We know that there is Episode IX, which concludes Rian Johnson’s trilogy. In February, Disney announced that Game of Thrones co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will write and produce the next Star Wars trilogy. There are spinoffs planned for Obi-Wan Kenobi and Boba Fett, which makes six upcoming Star Wars flicks. What do you think the other three movies will be about?
