A New Hope or The Empire Strikes Back? Placing Bets on the Future of the Star Wars Franchise

As we stand on the precipice of the unknown, we can’t help but speculate: what does the future hold for the Star Wars franchise? With its captivating blend of compelling characters, intricate plotlines, and a galaxy far, far away that has captured the imagination of millions, Star Wars is a titan of pop culture. But as we look to the horizon, it’s time to do a bit of fortune-telling. Buckle up, padawans and masters alike, as we place bets on the future of this beloved franchise.

Betting on New Characters: The Force Awakens Anew

One of the greatest strengths of Star Wars is its rich tapestry of characters. From the iconic trio of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo to the newer champions like Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron, these characters have become a part of our cultural lexicon. As we gaze into our crystal ball, we’re placing our bets on the emergence of new characters that will capture our hearts and minds.

The Potential of Unknown Regions

In the vast expanse of the Star Wars universe, there are still uncharted territories. The Unknown Regions, for instance, have been mentioned but never fully explored in the franchise. We’re betting that future storylines will delve into these mysteries, introducing us to new species, civilizations, and characters that will further enrich the Star Wars mythos.

A Leap into the Past: The Old Republic Beckons

While the allure of the unknown is tempting, we’re also placing bets on a return to the past. The era of the Old Republic, though touched upon in video games and novels, is ripe for exploration in the films or series.

Jedi Origins: The Dawn of the Force

One of the most tantalizing prospects is the exploration of the Jedi Order’s origins. How did this group of Force-sensitive beings come to be? What was their early relationship with the Force like? We’re wagering that the Star Wars franchise will answer these questions, shedding light on the early days of the Jedi.


Q: Will we see more of the Skywalker saga in the future? A: While the Skywalker saga officially concluded with Episode IX, the Star Wars universe is vast, and there’s always a possibility of returning to this iconic lineage.

Q: Can we expect more standalone movies like Rogue One and Solo? A: Given the success of these standalone films, it’s a safe bet that the franchise will continue to explore individual stories that enrich the larger Star Wars narrative.


As we stare into the stars, placing bets on the future of the Star Wars franchise, one thing is certain: the force is still strong with this one. Whether we’re venturing into uncharted territories with new characters or journeying back in time to the age of the Old Republic, the potential for captivating narratives is as vast as the galaxy itself. But no matter where this interstellar journey takes us, one thing remains unchanged: our enduring love for this franchise that has touched the hearts of millions across the globe.

So here’s to the future of Star Wars – to the new characters we’ll meet, the old ones we’ll revisit, and the countless adventures that lie ahead. And remember, as the wise Yoda once said, “Always in motion is the future.” So, keep your lightsabers at the ready, Star Warsfans, because no matter what the future holds, we’re in for a thrilling ride. Whether we’re meeting new heroes from the Unknown Regions or traveling back to the origins of the Jedi Order, one thing’s for sure: the Star Wars universe has many more stories to tell. So, may the Force be with us as we continue this intergalactic adventure.

When I was 7, I saw Star Wars: A New Hope in theaters a week after it opened. My parents were nice enough to take me and I have been a fan of Star Wars and almost all science fiction in general. I am an amateur writer who has been published for contributing flavor text to a RP game. I also have a copyright on a novel I hope to be able to publish sometime soon.
