The next Star Wars movie, pegged for 2022, will be set about 400 years before the Skywalker Saga and will feature new force abilities and a 500-year old Yoda.
A CheatSheet report rounded up a few things we know about the next Star Wars film. The film is apparently due to be released in 2022, and a full announcement is due from Lucasfilm later this month.
The film will be set about 400 years before the Skywalker trilogy and will feature a 500-year-old Yoda, as well as new (or I suppose old) force abilities.

The report notes:
As mentioned, one confirmed returning character is Yoda, who will be about 500 years old in the film.
The big news, aside from the setting, is that Star Wars looks be abandoning the trilogy format in favor of something similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with multiple stories and characters in individual films that might culminate in big films, the same way Avengers does. That's not certain, but given the success of the MCU, it might make a lot of sense.
As mentioned, the official announcement from Lucasfilm should come later this month, so we don't have long to wait to find out where the Star Wars Galaxy is headed!
The only prescription is more Disney+
You've got plenty of time between now and 2022, so grab a Disney+ subscription for all the Star Wars you could possibly want.
