Following the conclusion of the nine-episode Skywalker saga, Disney will release three new Star Wars movies starting in 2022 and stretching out through 2027.

All three Star Wars projects are untitled. The company did not release details, but it has previously announced plans for two Star Wars film series - one overseen by The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson and another to be written by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the creators of HBO’s hit television show Game of Thrones.

Meanwhile, as Avengers: Endgame and July’s Spider-Man: Far From Home mark the end of Phase 3 for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Disney also confirmed the release dates for their upcoming Phase 4 films through 2022.

With the sequel now scheduled for December 2020, Disney moved Avatar 3 to December 2023, Avatar 4 to December 2025 and Avatar 5 to December 2027.
