That wasn't intentional though. If the movie studios had their way there would have been multiple movies right after Return of the Jedi in 1983. Star Wars was a colossus back then. Remember that there were no competing mediums with movies in those days -- no internet, no video games, most people didn't even have cable television. Movies were it, and Star Wars was the undisputed king.
No, the only reason we never saw a movie immediately after 1983 was because of Lucas himself, dithering in his typical Lucas way. I seem to remember he was fighting with studios because he wanted to pursue the plan of his 9 original stories (which he had outlined even before ANH in 1977) while the studios didn't care about his master plan and just wanted sequels to the OT. Negotiations crawled along until 1997 when the casting of the Phantom Menace was announced.
And then of course after the three forgettable prequels we all thought Star Wars was over and done with until Lucas sold the franchise to Disney...and we all know the rest.

But as much as I once loved Star Wars, its lost its cache, pretty much permanently. Its an also-ran franchise now.
I doubt you'll ever create the excitement you had for 1999 and 2015, even if you were to delay the next the movie by more than a decade.
No, we won't. People and some of the younger fans that like to dissect everything have already killed the brand. Disney didn't help with Star Wars. They planned on, like any corporate empire, purchase it and mass produce it. At the same time plug their own personal interests.

Some younger fans might stick around.

Rumor is a Darth Maul Disney+ series is in development and he will appear in multiple shows.

This makes FAR more sense than the Obi-Wan series (particularly if the brilliant Sam Witwer is involved). I'm not sure why Disney committed to an Obi-Wan series, his story has been told (in the Prequels, the Filoni Clone Wars, the Tartakovsky Clone Wars, and so on).

Honestly, I'm the opposite since I feel like there's enough potential for a miniseries focusing on Obi-Wan that takes after Revenge of the Sith and before Rebels.

If you check the Obi-Wan thread, you'll see some of us discuss things left unexplained.

I think Solo made it clear Disney still want to explore him. Honestly, Im kinda good on him. I've seen enough of him and his brother in Rebels to satisfy me.

*ahem* that's been a rumor since even before episode 9. Trust me. That whole business with returning characters were real. They are probably going to concentrate on the Underworld more.
Yes, that's why I said "brings" and "back" in there. It was one of the first rumors for the Disney+ era of shows. I'm all for more of the Underworld. Mandalorian has been good testing grounds for telling stories set in that backdrop.

I'm not enthusiastic about this news. I do not want SW to become like ST having a dozen series.
I'm pleased with it. The last movie trilogy disappointed me and Mandalorian revived my interest in SW, so I'm hoping Andor, Obi-Wan, and these next 3 can keep things lively and continue to explore new aspects of the franchise the movies never could.

TV will likely be the future medium for the franchise, so either get used to it, or look for new stories to enjoy.

hey um I have another idea, the haim saban attempt to have news corporation (the owners of fox and fox family worldwide at the time) to buy his stake in fox family worldwide back in 2000/2001

I am not kidding, Mostezli. The brand-new Evangelion movie will be released tomorrow indeed.
Today I was sitting on Budapest bus line 138, and what did I see? This!

However, this has nothing to do with Dexter's Laboratory or the live-action series. It is called like that because there is a Hungarian company in District 22 called Dexter.
The brand-new Evangelion movie can't be delayed anymore. It will be released tomorrow. Rejoice!
