New Star Wars Movie Is in Development

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a new Star Wars movie is reportedly in development, and may possibly land on the Disney+ streaming service. Last year, Disney announced that the film series will be going on hiatus after the release of The Rise of Skywalker, setting aside release dates for three films set in a galaxy far, far way (With the first coming in December 2022). In typical Lucasfilm style, details about these upcoming projects are mostly unknown.

Per THR’s report, the movie in development will be helmed by Sleight director J.D. Dillard and penned by Luke Cage writer Matt Owens. As of now, the story information of the mystery film is being kept under lock. Interestingly, it is unknown as to whether the film will be getting a theatrical release or premiere as a Disney+ exclusive.

Following the release of The Rise of Skywalker, Disney’s Star Wars renaissance has been met with mostly mixed reactions. While four of the five films released hit the $1 billion mark worldwide, half of the films released garnered intense scrutiny from the fans. Unlike its hugely successful Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) cousin, the future of Star Wars in film remains highly uncertain.
