Yesterday’s big news (and it remains big news for conversation) centered on the report that Lucasfilm had decided to place a hold on the production of future Star Wars standalone projects. This led to speculation about the ongoing status of the unannounced/rumored Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone film and the Boba Fett-centric standalone film.
According to sources at ABC News, that report is not entirely accurate as they have heard from their Lucasfilm insiders that multiple Star Wars standalone films are in fact being developed at this time by the company.
Lucasfilm sources on Thursday characterized as “inaccurate” a report that future “Star Wars” movies falling outside of the regular trilogy storyline (Episodes I to IX) have been put on hold in the wake of the box office under-performance of “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”
Instead, Lucasfilm told ABC News there are still “multiple” Star Wars films currently in development that have not been officially announced. Those projects are moving forward separate from an already-announced “Star Wars” trilogy being overseen by “The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson and another series of movies from “Game of Thrones” producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
Stay tuned for more on this as it comes to light…
