Director J.J. Abrams' finale to the sequel trilogy concluded the Skywalker saga as we know. Though divisive, it was financially successful and capped off a big year for Disney at the box office. Now, we look to the future, which is a bit uncertain at Lucasfilm right now on the big screen. We know Taika Waititi has a new Star Wars movie in the works, and we know that Disney has a date held in December 2022 for the next entry in the franchise. As for what that will be?
