The future of Star Wars is up for debate now that the Skywalker Saga has come to an end, with everyone having a view on what they want to see from it. Lucasfilm appears to be going out of its way not to fulfill demands of fans, based on a casual look at the internet.
With almost every project suffering from behind-the-scenes difficulties, while the majority of onscreen output has tended to split opinion, it’s been a wild ride for a galaxy far, far away under Disney and Kathleen Kennedy’s leadership.
The Mandalorian and Rogue One are as beloved as it gets, but all you have to say deepfakes, de-aging, The Last Jedi, The Rise of Skywalker, the Book of Boba Fett, or Obi-Wan Kenobi for a firestorm of responses. In an interview with ScreenRant , Episode IX star Dominic Monaghan shared his thoughts on what the future may bring.
“I think they’re telling different stories with different characters in the Star Wars universe, and I just wonder if maybe after focusing so heavily on Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Ewan McGregor, and Hayden Christensen, maybe they should quite rightly be telling stories from female points of view or from different people’s points of view. So, I’ll just sit and wait.”
The next line-up appears to be leaning further into nostalgia, so it might be a while before Monaghan gets his wish, but the majority of Star Wars supporters would probably agree that the days of keeping one foot in the past should come to an end.
