Hope you weren't planning any major life events for December 16, 2016, because you may have to reschedule. The next Star Wars film, Rogue One, premieres that day and it sounds like it'll be a fantastic story featuring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, and Alan Tudyk:

Following the foundation of the Galactic Empire, a wayward band of Rebel fighters comes together to carry out a desperate mission: to steal the plans for the Death Star before it can be used to enforce the Emperor’s rule.


Just a little over five months after that, Episode VIII will premiere, hopefully picking up where VII left off. Following that will be the standalone Han Solo film in 2018, Episode IX in 2019, and Boba Fett's movie in 2020. 

I don't know about you, but my calendar just got busy for the next five years.

Anakin Skywalker was initially set to make an appearance as a ghost in The Force Awakens, but he didn't make the final cut. Maybe it's because he looked so, so creepy.

Why the two-face treatment? According to artist Iain McCaig, it's because Anakin's got both good and evil natures inside him:

When you light a candle, you also cast a shadow. That inspired me to propose, for the first time, that Anakin’s ghost could come back … If we see Anakin Skywalker, because he does flow back and forth between Darth Vader and Anakin, let’s see him as a character with a dark and light side. The reason Luke is this whole new entity is because he was the first to acknowledge his own dark side — that it was not separate from him.


It's unclear what part of the film Anakin could have appeared in, but it's likely he'd either have appeared to Kylo Ren, or alongside other series veterans in Rey's Force vision.
