Lucasfilm is reportedly developing a new stand alone Star Wars movie that take place after the sequel trilogy. Yep, after Rise of Skywalker.
The trades are also reporting that it “may” include some of the squrl trilogy characters. i am officially scared. Please for the love of sweet baby Yoda…no Rose Tico in this movie.
THR has the following: “Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Lindelof is writing the new Star Wars script with Justin Britt-Gibson, a young and rising writer who worked as an executive story editor on Guillermo del Toro’s vampire drama, The Strain, and wrote episodes of Starz’s The Counterpart, a series that deals with parallel dimensions and starred J.K. Simmons.
Britt-Gibson, however, comes to the job after a secret writers room that began coming together after this year’s Star Wars Celebration.
The room held a two-week session in July and at the table were Patrick Somerville, who worked with Lindelof on Leftovers and then went on to create the buzzy Station Eleven; Rayna McClendon, a consulting producer on Lucasfilm’s own Obi-Wan Kenobi and writer on the company’s upcoming Willow series; and Andy Greenwald, the creator of the 2019 Rosario Dawson crime drama Briarpatch (on which McClendon was a story editor), among a couple of other writers.
Dave Filoni, a protégé of Star Wars creator George Lucas who is involved in many of the shows, may have also been present.”
