‘Star Wars’: Lucasfilm Won’t Announce New Star Wars Movies Until 2024
Saga fans’Star Wars’ were hoping that a new movie in the saga could be announced during D23, the convention promoted by disney to publicize your upcoming projects.
However, a Reddit user shared an article by the journalist Matt Bellonifrom Puck News, revealing that the Lucasfilm is not expected to announce any new films in the franchise until 2024.
Currently, the production of ‘rogue squadron‘ remains on hold and the mysterious project being developed by Damon Lindelof (‘Watchmen’) also hasn’t received updates for quite some time.
That’s because the studio’s efforts are being concentrated on TV series.
As ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story‘ and ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker‘ had lower-than-expected critical receptions, Lucasfilm doesn’t want to saturate the screens.
The information makes perfect sense, since the series ‘Boba Fett’s Book and ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ were initially planned as movies.
“No Star Wars movies before 2024. There will be no Star Wars movie announcements at D23. Fans expected the president of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy would give the green light to something besides the TV series of Disney+but she’s not ready to pull the trigger on any movie in development, including the Damon Lindelof. […] We will probably have to wait five or six years between ‘The Rise of Skywalker‘ and whatever comes around.”
Remembering that the next production inspired by the saga is ‘Star Wars: Andor‘, which arrives at Disney+ with three episodes in September 21st.
Check out the teaser:
