Premiere: December 19, 2025
While nothing official has been revealed about the film, certain rumors have pointed to this film being written and directed by Taika Waititi who was officially brought on board to helm a Star Wars film in May of 2020. Lucasfilm had three dates put aside for Star Wars theatrical releases with Patty Jenkins’ Rogue Squadron taking the 2023 slot. With Taika’s project being the only other referred to at the Disney Investor Day on December 10, 2020, it’s probably fair to assume that his feature might be the one released in 2025.
In an interview with Total Film in May 2022, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that the upcoming Taika Waititi-directed film is currently slated to be the next theatrical release for the Star Wars franchise. Lucasfilm is now aiming to have the film released in late 2023, but Kennedy made note that nothing was officially locked in during the interview. With a reported 2023 production start it remains unlikely that audiences should expect a late 2023 release.
