The Last of Us, for example, was released in 2014, while Star Trek, which had been released two years earlier, was also released in 2015.
The Last, Star Force Awakens, and Star Trek are still available for pre-order.
But this is a different time.
This year, there’s no longer a direct tie between the first and third Star Wars films, and there’s been a shift to focusing on smaller-scale animated films that aren’t as expansive as previous installments.
So, to see a movie like Rogue One in theaters for the first time, or Guardians of the Galaxy in theaters, is an entirely different experience.
While the new Star Wars film is an enormous film, it’s still only in theaters a fraction of the way through its theatrical run, so its still in early stages of development.
That means we’ll never get an official release date, but we can expect the film to hit theaters around June 2018, and hopefully sometime after that.
That leaves us with two options for the next Star Wars installment.
First, the sequel will likely see a direct sequel to The Last Of Us, with the filmmakers making some tweaks to the story.
Then, a third film could debut on December 14, 2019, with director Rian Johnson and producer Ron Howard bringing back the characters and setting of the original trilogy, only to find that there aren’t enough actors available to fill the roles.
If we look at the films already in development, we can see the two biggest candidates for a third Star War film are the upcoming film in the trilogy The Force Awakens and the upcoming Star Wars The Last Knight, both of which are being directed by J.J. Abrams and written by Gareth Edwards and J. Michael Straczynski.
Both of those films will likely feature a different director, so it’s possible that the studio will have a choice between the two directors for the third film, and either of them could eventually direct a new Star War movie.
So far, however, that’s not the case.
The most likely candidates for the new installment are Rogue One and The Last Ship, which are both being produced by Disney and Warner Bros. Abrams is a veteran of the Star Wars saga and has directed Star Wars Episode VII, Rogue One, and The Force Unleashed.
His other projects include the Star Trek reboot, Rogue Nation, and the animated films The Jungle Book and Up.
Straczinski, who helmed the original Star Wars trilogy, is also currently directing the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Both the Rogue One movie and The Next of Us will probably be set between The Last Episode, Rogue, and Rogue One.
Rogue One will probably take place after The Last Battle, which was released during the final years of the Original Trilogy.
But, as we’ll see in the next section, that doesn’t necessarily mean that a sequel is inevitable.
If the studios are in a hurry to get into the third Star Force adventure, then Rogue One could be a good candidate to go with it.
It’s a more faithful adaptation of the story of the film that has been a hit in theaters and is also going to be available on home video later this year.
If The Next Of Us comes out sooner, then it might not be a bad idea to put the sequel on the table, too.
If Rogue One comes out this year, and then The Last Days of Resistance, then there’s a real possibility that a third installment could debut in 2020.
That film, however likely, is still in the works.
There’s also the possibility that we might see another Star Wars movie at some point in the future, but it’s unlikely we’ll ever get a definitive answer as to when that might be.
Either way, it seems likely that Disney and WB Studios are still in discussions about the third movie, and if they decide to go this route, they may well make some tweaks.
For example, if Rogue One follows the same story lines as The Force One, then we might be able to see that film debut in theaters sometime between 2020 and 2021.
