Nokia Partners with Lucasfilm for Star Wars: The Last Jedi VR Experience

This shift in release dates marks Rian Johnston's The Last Jedi as the final Star Wars movie to be released during the holiday season.

Aside from Star Wars, fans can look forward to a new Indiana Jones film in 2020.

President of Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy has confirmed that by the end of the year the company will have begun to map out the future of the Star Wars franchise beyond the sequel trilogy. It can be recalled that the actor sat down with Collider in 2016 about the possible "Star Wars" anthology film featuring Obi-Wan's life story between the events in Episodes 3 and 4. And now it is being reported that the first script reading of Star Wars 9 is happening soon.

Disney announced a raft of dates for its forthcoming movies going up to November 2021, many of which are simply described as "Untitled Marvel", "Untitled Pixar" or "Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (live action)". The next film in the franchise to hit theaters will be "Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi", that film will release in December 15, 2017. Speaking of Frozen, Frozen 2 opens in theaters on November 27, 2019. Screenwriter David Koepp, who worked on Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, recently said that, to his knowledge, George Lucas is not involved with the story of this next Jones film.

The VR version of Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be Nokia and Disney's first collaboration.

After all, a crux of the Finn-Poe love theory is that their characters - along with Rey - are meant to mimic the trio from the original films (Leia Organa, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker).

Following the success of "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" and the ongoing production of Han Solo standalone movie, Lucasfilm is planning more "Star Wars" spin-offs in the future.
