In an Uncanny Nerd hosted Star Wars panel during last weekend’s All Star Comic Con in Tyson Corner, Virginia, voice actor Tom Kane, who has decades of work within the Star Wars universe dropped a little tid-bit that has taken many fans by surprise.
Mr. Kane, best known as the voice of Yoda for years in Star Wars: Clone Wars, revealed that there are no less than 9 (NINE!!) Star Wars films currently in some stage of development. He went on to further detail that a YODA stand alone movie is not one of those nine, leaving fans around the universe to play guessing games at what the movies could be.
The news started popping up around the internet on June 17, and Uncanny Nerd has just responded over twitter a confirmation that Mr. Kane did in fact say what is claimed.
Can confirm reports that during our panel at @AllStarComicCon, Star Wars voice actor Tom Kane revealed there were at least 9 new Star Wars related films in some phase of development from Disney/Lucasfilm.

We know for sure what some of the films are… or at least we have some idea.
Episode IX is a no brainer. Plus there is the trilogy supposedly in development to be directed by Rian Johnson. There is also confirmation, though very little details of Game of Throne’s creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss scripting and producing a separate standalone trilogy.
So that’s seven films that we know about. What could the other two be? Kenobi (yes please!!!), Knights of the Old Republic (though I’d BET this is the David and David trilogy mentioned above), Boba Fett? There are tons of options for those other two… but we sadly have no real idea what they are besides that there is now CONFIRMATION that they are in development.
Personally, I’d love to see some more Enfys Nest and the Birth of the Rebellion, how about you?
