David Lindelof Star Wars Film Occurs After Rise of Skywalker
Additionally, these same reports allege that this new film will be a standalone entry to the franchise. Of course, depending on how successful it becomes, it’s likely that Disney will commission further entries. However, it’s refreshing to know Disney is making a self-contained film. Hopefully, there are no unanswered questions!
David Lindelof Star Wars Film Release Date
Sadly, we don’t know much about the David Lindelof Star Wars film. We know he’s writing the film alongside co-writer Justin Britt-Gibson. Most people know Lindelof for his work on LOST and Watchmen. Originally, Lindelof said he wanted to work on Star Wars “at some point, but certainly not in the immediate future Maybe a decade from now when I would no longer be blamed for ruining it. That would be a hoot.” It seems that he’s changed his mind!
For the director, Disney has called Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy on board, known best for his work on Ms. Marvel. Aside from this crew information, we don’t know anything about the film. That includes cast, characters, and storyline! As such, there’s no clue on a release date either. However, we don’t expect Disney to release the film until 2025.
It would be quite exciting if the rumours were true about the film’s timeline. The post-Rise of Skywalker timeline is fresh for picking, and there are many stories to be told then. Additionally, Lucasfilm can create stories that aren’t bogged down by continuity or other events. Aside from the sequel trilogy, Disney has centered most of its efforts on the timeframe between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. They’ve only recently expanded to include stuff before the films, such as with The Acolyte and Tales of the Jedi. So, it’s refreshing to know Disney may choose a different timeframe for the David Lindelof Star Wars film.
New Star Wars Film
“Anyone who comes into the Star Wars universe needs to know that it’s a three-, four-, five-year commitment. That’s what it takes. You can’t step in for a year and shoot something and then walk away… It requires that kind of nurturing.”
Clearly, this hiatus is something intentional, and the David Lindelof Star Wars film will help to bring the franchise back to the big screen. This film isn’t the only Star Wars film on its way. Recently, Disney announced Patty Jenkins as the director of Rogue Squadron, although they also delayed it indefinitely. We also know that Taika Waititi is working on his own Star Wars film. Rian Johnson is creating a separate trilogy of movies which will be different to Waititi’s. A lot is happening in a galaxy far, far away, and we can’t wait!
