Lucasfilm Reassessing Their Plans, Not Slowing Development

Bespin refugee - June 22, 2018
Contrary to reports over the last couple of days, sources say Lucasfilm is not slowing down development on future projects. While they are "licking their wounds" following the performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story, "Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and her team are regrouping and figuring out the direction of the movies beyond the final installment of the main series of films, Star Wars: Episode IX, which is scheduled for release Dec. 20, 2019." There have been reports of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Boba Fett stand-alone films, Disney and Lucasfilm are now "trying to figure out how to make, and market, them differently."
Since Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm in October 2012 for $4 billion, four new films in the franchise have been released, grossing between $1 billion and $2 billion each. Meanwhile, Solo has grossed $344 million globally nearly a month after its worldwide release.
Currently, only two official film projects remain works on progress, a new series of movies written and produced by Game of Thrones TV show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and a separate trilogy developed by The Last Jedi co-writer and director, Rian Johnson, as well as, a live-action Star Wars TV show, executive produced by Jon Favreau, that will air on Disney’s streaming service.
