The production list of Star Wars has become a little shorter. According to Variety, upcoming Star Wars films from Marvel president Kevin Feige and Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins are no longer in development.
A potential Star Wars movie from Feige and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy was first hinted at back in 2019, but sources close to the situation told Variety that it has been shelved. The same is the case with Rogue Squadron, which Jenkins worked on, which isn’t all that surprising given that production was pushed back to 2021 and pushed back again last year. In December, Jenkins expressed uncertainty about the future of the film.
Despite these setbacks, Variety reports that Taika Waititi’s Star Wars movie is still in production and that he may even star in it.
Sources also told Variety that Lucasfilm is interested in making a Star Wars movie with Lost co-writer Damon Lindelof and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, who worked on Ms. Marvel. Oh, and there’s also the potential Star Wars film from Deadpool 3 director Shawn Levy, who’s dead set on making it happen.
A lot can happen between now and December 2025, when Disney plans to release the next Star Wars movie. More information about the future of the franchise will probably be revealed during the Star Wars Celebration, which begins on April 7.
