On the other hand, because very few characters from the original trilogy may play a role in this chapter of the saga, no one knows what we will find in Episode IX, apart from the actors who were part of the cast of The Force Awakens and Episode VIII – The Last Jedi the year past.
This movie was rewritten by Abrams and it is expected that the topics less traditional introduced in The Last of the Jedi in 2017 will be moved to the Episode IX with Abrams at the head of the mentality that is more traditional.
Disney and Lucasfilm surprised almost everyone with the announcement (July 2018) that he was preparing a sixth season of the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The series winner of an Emmy award between the events of Episode II – attack of The clones and Episode III – revenge of The Sith ended his acclaimed career in 2014, and while fans were disappointed to see it end, few expect Disney to the revive years later.

As expected, Disney had a new series to continue it.

Disney works on anime series for Resistance, which gives you a unique sensation within the universe extended. There are several notable names attached as voice actors (Bobby Moynihan, Donald Faison, Jim Rash), as well as various characters familiar to the Star Wars universe involved in the story, including Poe Dameron and droid BB-8.

It is worth to note that, although this animated series, turned out to be very enjoyable to children, discourage some fans who expected another thing. However, the fact that the series has focused on the female characters of Star Wars, has allowed him to receive many compliments from the public and even created a new line of toys, after they finished the first season A signal of how important it has been!
Each chapter of Forces of Destiny only lasts two or three minutes, and offers a sample of the universe more deep of Star Wars in a summary form and that does not require an investment of time so extensive.
