I just saw the movie, and I can see that they can go crazy and make a lot of tie ins. Maybe

New Series (Since the Mandalorian seems to be going great)

Or the clasic approach Comics or Novels.

Are there any plans or have they already announced that they will indeeed make this?

    What do you mean by tie-ins? There have been a ton of lead-in novels and comics already released under the 'Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' title. Under the new canon model w/ the Lucasfilm Story Group, it's not really accurate (imo) to call things 'tie-ins' since it's all canon at this point. One could argue that Episode 7 of The Mandalorian (which was released on 12/18 in the US, a few days before normal Mandaorlian release day of Friday) was very loosely related / foreshadowing of certain events in RoS, and thus was it was released a little early to set that up

I heard "through the grapevine" that Disney is scrapping (possibly re-writing) Episodes 7 to 9, because the films were such a disaster. For his part, Dave Filoni wants to distance The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett from the crappy Sequel films. So, don't be surprised if none of Filoni's projects tie into Episodes 7 to 9.

    This doesn't answer the question. You're also wrong about them de-canonising episode 7-9. These films made a billion dollars each and there's zero chance of it happening.

  • @Valorum second this. Plus, this answer is also conjecture with no sourcing behind it. “I heard through the grapevine” is not a legit answer for this SE site. Feb 24, 2021 at 4:04
