Star Wars Episode IX coming in May 2019, Indiana Jones 5 in July 2020

Lucasfilm have unveiled the release dates for the final Star Wars sequel trilogy film for 24th May 2019. Six months earlier than previously envisaged. In the same update on the Star Wars Website, they also confirmed a 10th July 2020 release date for Indiana Jones 5; which has now been confirmed as starring Harrison Ford and being directed by Steven Spielberg.

Ahead of 2019, we still have both Star Wars: The Last Jedi this December and the untitled Han Solo movie in December 2018. There have been a number of fluctuations of planned release dates in the past with both Rogue One and The Last Jedi flickering between May and December dates as production schedules changed.

Indiana Jones 5 has been expected for quite a while, previously a 2019 date was on the cards and this is the first time we have a solid indication of the actual day from an official source.

Star Wars

Star Wars is a science fiction film series created by George Lucas. It debuted in 1977 and the first film was quickly retitled to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. It was followed by two sequels - The Empire Strikes Back in 1980 and Return of the Jedi in 1983. A trilogy of prequel films were launched in 1999 with The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. In 2015 Star Wars returned to the screens for a new trilogy under the control of Disney with The Force Awakens directed by J J Abrams.

A series of spin-offs were launched in 2016 with Gareth Edwards' Rogue One and 2017 will see the second film in the new trilogy, Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi.

Another spin-off will be released in 2018 - Solo - which tells the story of Han Solo before the original Star Wars film and 2019 will round off the third trilogy with the untitled Episode IX.

A fourth trilogy of films has been announced for release after 2020 which will be overseen by Rian Johnson and they will feature entirely new characters and an entirely separate story.

In addition, there are the TV series The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels and a new as yet untitled live action series due to debut some time after 2020.
