Rumours are still flying about what Star Wars film will actually make it to theatres – and Damon Lindelof’s project could be back on the table.
Despite previous rumours that the Emmy Award-winning screenwriter’s Star Wars project was cancelled, the latest news is that it could be back in the works. This comes after previous rumours claimed that filming was ready to begin ‘imminently‘.
On John Rocha’s The Hot Mic podcast, insider Jeff Sneider claimed Lucasfilm had indeed decided on what the next Star Wars movie would be and it’s “the [Damon] Lindelof movie. Like a hundred percent.”
Sneider went on to claim that this film is “the one coming out December 2025.” Disney’s next untitled Star Wars film is believed to be due for a December 19, 2025 release, so this information aligns with what we know so far.
Previous rumours suggested that the film could star a POC lead, leading to some fans theorising it could continue John Boyega’s Finn’s story, or a relative of his. However, it could, of course, be a brand new plotline starring a person of colour, without any need to be related to existing POC characters.
For now, this is all speculation. However, it is expected that Lucasfilm will make an announcement about the future of Star Wars films at the upcoming Star Wars Celebration Europe 2023, taking place between April 7 and 10. Hopefully that means we’ll know one way or the other sometime soon.
