Once again when it comes to information Star Wars, Deadline is never far away for an exclusive reveal. This time it is simply a new film in the pipeline with two names in the key including a director of the MCU, just that.
Star Wars news for the big screen
So the script for the next movie Star Wars was entrusted to the author Damon Lidenlof whose work on the series is known Lost (just that), The Leftovers or Watchmen. For the realization, Disney went to look on the side of the MCU with the talented Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, a director who directed several episodes of the very recent series Ms.Marvel.
For the moment the production is not even underway yet and we know absolutely nothing about the film officially. But according to The Hollywood Reporter the movie project Star Wars is intended to be a standalone project, which if successful could lead to more films and therefore potentially a saga. Newspaper sources also claim that the story takes place after the events of Star Wars : The Rise of Skywalker from 2019, although it wouldn’t be a continuation of the Skywalker saga.
In short, still a lot of mysteries but obviously it would be possible to see several characters from the saga there.
With all this information, Disney seriously gives the impression of not knowing where to go with its saga. As if the company is groping for fear of disappointing the fans (and therefore also the investors).
