In a surprising turn of events, Lucasfilm has decided to shelve the Star Wars movies from Kevin Feige and Patty Jenkins. The news comes as part of a shakeup at the production company.
According to a report from Variety, Lucasfilm is no longer actively developing the Kevin Feige and Patty Jenkins projects. Instead, Lucasfilm is focusing on a different Star Wars feature from Academy Award-winning filmmaker Taika Waititi. The Marvel veteran is also expected to star in the movie.
In addition to the Taika Waititi movie, Lucasfilm is also working on another Star Wars project from a team that includes Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Damon Lindelof, and Justin Britt-Gibson. Details on this project are still scarce, but fans are eagerly waiting for any news about it.
Fans of the Star Wars franchise will have the opportunity to learn more about the future of the cinematic universe at the next Star Wars Celebration in London on the weekend of April 7. According to sources from Variety, Lucasfilm will unveil its plans for the franchise at the upcoming event.
Another setback for the Star Wars universe
The cancellation of the Kevin Feige and Patty Jenkins Star Wars movies is a reminder of the challenges involved in developing successful movie franchises. Lucasfilm has had many successes with the Star Wars franchise, but not every project will be a hit.
Despite the setbacks, there is still a lot of excitement surrounding the franchise, which has been a cultural phenomenon since the release of the first movie in 1977. Lucasfilm hasn’t released any Star Wars movies since 2019’s The Rise of Skywalker, which received mixed reactions among critics and fans.
