These are not the sequels you are looking for…
It has yet to be confirmed that Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg have been hired by Disney to work on the the Star Wars franchise films, THR reports that they are working on the franchise, but not necessarily on the expected Episode VIII and IX films.
It seems that as part of Disney’s desire to expand the franchise (and apparently wants to do so quickly), the two may be working to take the franchise in different directions with spinoffs or similar projects, which they would produce, and could eventually be given “Episode” status.
