Lucasfilm has a Star Wars film slated for release in December of 2025 but, as of right now, there doesn’t seem to be a project ready to fill the coveted spot. As Disney continues to evolve following Bob Iger’s return to the reigns of the company, word has come that Patty Jenkins‘ Rogue Squadron and Kevin Feige‘s project are no longer in development.
Rogue Squadron’s status has been in doubt for some time now but this is the first time Feige’s project, which was reportedly being written by Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness scribe Michael Waldron, has been said to be on the chopping block since it was announced in 2019. As THR points out, with Waldron scripting Avengers: Secret Wars and Feige continuing to the steer the MCU ship to that endpoint, the pair are too busy to work on their Star Wars project at the moment.
With those two films out of the running for the 2025 spot, projects by Taika Waititi and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy could fill it though it’s unclear just how far along I’m development those projects are. Perhaps with Star Wars Celebration 2023 just around the corner, perhaps Lucasfilm will shed some light on the subject.
