Well, she's not going to stop making Star Wars, obviously. But the question at hand is why she's officially greenlit two new movie series without announcing another standalone to go in between them, especially when rumblings six months ago indicated that an announcement was near. And I think the production problems on both, plus the negative buzz for Solo, might mean that Kennedy doesn't even want to deal with any more of these, at least for the time being.

And this is coming from someone who loved Rogue One and is really looking forward to Solo.

Where did the term “stand-alone” even come from? I’m sure they would’ve made another Rogue One movie had the movie had room for a sequel. And you can bet they’ll do another Solo movie if that one is successful. I’ve always viewed the strategy as there’s the Skywalker Saga and then there’s everything else. So I see the two new movie series that they’ve announced as part of what people refer to as “stand-alone” movies.

I think the "problems" with Rogue One are being blown way out of proportion. Gareth made a great film, and I think she really enjoyed working with him.

Maybe the execs got a little twitchy about it not being quite Star-Warsy enough, but that's still hearsay. The reshoot ordeal was probably overexaggerated.

I would not compare the production of Rogue One to Solo at all. There shouldn't be an inherent fear of making stand alone films. They should however shy away from making unnecessary fan-wanky backstory pieces like Solo or Fett. I still think even an Obi-Wan movie is a terrible idea. There is a LOT of room in the Star Wars universe. Explore it...

To me Rian Johnson's new trilogy is a standalone trilogy, indeed.

Standalone is the word everyone used when Lucasfilm said they were making separate movies from the main saga. Later they called them Anthology" movies and everyone was happy with it, and later they changed and called them "Star Wars Stories" and everyone found it stupid.
So to me everything that is not the main episodic saga is a "standalone story"; being told in one movie or more, having the "Star Wars Story" label or not.
