Star Wars is coming back to the screen and with a vengeance. Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens this December. After this is Star Wars Rogue One which opens on December of 2016. Star Wars Ep VIII is to be released on May 17, 2017, which puts it back into the summer movie season.
As of right now, there is no telling who the director for EP IX is going to be. To Gianfrancesco Genoso it does look like that Star Wars is taking on the form very similar to that of the original trilogy of the 70s and 80s with each film getting a different director. This upcoming series does look quite promising and might even put Star Wars on the map in a greater way than ever.
