star wars‘ past was in the movies. His show has a huge presence on TV, with shows like The Mandalorian, Boba Fett’s Bookand Andor. His future, apparently, is both.
Weeks after a report that Lucasfilm was developing a new star wars movie with Lost and watchmen producer Damon Lindelof comes word (via Deadline) that the company is in talks with director Shawn Levy to “develop to direct a star wars movie.” Levy is currently working on the next dead Pool sequel that will star Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine.
Levy also worked for Disney on their pandemic-era blockbuster free guy, also featuring Reynolds. Their report contains no details about a premise or a writer, but claims that Levy would do this star wars movie after it finished Dead Pool 3. This movie is currently slated for release on November 8, 2024, so this movie likely won’t be seen until 2026 at the earliest.
It would also be different star wars film from the one Lindelof is supposedly working on. Other star wars films believed to be in various stages of development at Lucasfilm include a draft Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi and one from Marvel Cinematic Universe architect Kevin Feige.
The last star wars the film to open in theaters was 2019 The Rise of Skywalker, which did decent business but was not well received by many fans. Since then, Lucasfilm has devoted nearly all of its creative energy to building a star wars galaxy on Disney+ and streaming TV, much of which has proven to be very popular and successful. Anytime star wars returns to theaters, the question will be, now that Disney has conditioned its audience to watch this stuff on stream, are they going to line up again to pay $15 to see it on the big screen? It’s worked out for Marvel so far, but Marvel hasn’t really stopped releasing movies except during the worst of the pandemic. We will have to see what Star Wars’ a hiatus from multiplexes for at least five years demands that it finally return.
