Lucasfilm denies that future “A Star Wars Story” spinoffs are on hold
From ABC News:
“Hold up, “Star Wars” fans.
Reports of the death of future standalone films from that galaxy far, far away (like “Solo,” “Rogue One” and a rumored — but never-announced — Obi-Wan Kenobi project) appear to be premature, and speculative at best.
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. […]
ABC News and Lucasfilm are both part of parent company Disney.”
Wise for that update to end on the Yoda line. We’ll see.
