2019’s Star Wars: Episode 9 may be bringing an end to the current trilogy of Star Wars films, but if you thought that Disney would be putting the kabosh on a franchise that churns out billion-dollar hits like clockwork, you’d be sadly mistaken.

And luckily for us, it’s a universe that has plenty of room to explore. Based on all the ground that was covered in all the Star Wars Legends universe before Disney took it over, that much was made perfectly clear. But what does Lucasfilm have in store for fans for the future?

Speaking with The Star Wars Show, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy teased the future of the franchise saying:

“We’re sitting down now, we’re talking about the next ten years of Star Wars stories and we’re looking at narratively where that might go, future stories beyond Episode 9, with these new characters, Rey, Poe, Finn, BB-8, but we’re also looking at working with people that are interested in coming into the Star Wars world and taking us to places that we haven’t been yet, and that’s exciting too because it’s a vast galaxy far, far away… The possibilities are endless.”

No doubt about it, most Star Wars fans will be right alongside Lucasfilm all the way — especially given how amazing all the content has been out of there lately.

But eagle-eyed viewers may come off of this quote a little upset. Not because there’s no end in sight, but because Kennedy virtually confirmed that Rey, Finn, and Poe would all live through the next couple films. Oops. Or…perhaps that’s what she wants you to think.
