Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy just recently teased the future of Star Wars on the cinema.
The Skywalker Legend especially ended with Episode IX, and the Star Wars franchise is now securely in a brand-new period with Disney Plus at the center of all of it. As the television side grows, Lucasfilm is still establishing a number of tasks for the cinema and it was initially exposed by Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy that Rogue Squadron would be the next movie. Tasks from Taika Waititi, Kevin Feige, Rian Johnson, and J.D. Dillard are likewise understood to be in the works.
Reports then came out that Patty Jenkins’ Rogue Squadron had actually been postponed, with unpredictability surrounding Star Wars’ movie future back on the table. While speaking to Vanity Fair, Kathleen Kennedy shared an upgrade on what’s occurring with the movies:
“We have a road map. I would say that Taika’s story fits more specifically into that. Rogue Squadron…we kind of pushed off to the side for the moment. Patty is developing the script further. Then we will talk about how that connects to the central spine that we’re working on. There’s a couple of [filmmakers] that we’ve been in conversation with over quite a long period of time that I’m hoping will come in and make the overall commitment that Jon and Dave have made. That’s ideally what I would love to see happen in the feature space.”
Kathleen Kennedy likewise kept in mind that they aren’t trying to find a Kevin Feige-type, however rather a filmmaker who wants to remain devoted to a galaxy far, far for a couple of years:
“I wouldn’t go so far. Kevin is an anomaly—an amazing one. But [the goal is] definitely having somebody make more of a commitment. I hesitate to use the word trilogies anymore because Star Wars is much more about persistent storytelling.”
Mentioning the Skywalker Legend, Kathleen Kennedy likewise shared the Star Wars franchise will begin to move far from the household:
“I think it is vital. Just staying within the construct of George’s storytelling, to keep chipping away at that, I think would be wrong. It’s our job to step away now, but still have a connection to the mythology that George created. That won’t stop. But we are moving on from the Skywalker saga. That’s what’s taking a lot of time, discussion, and thought right now.”
