Lucasfilm Denies Reports That ‘Star Wars Story’ Films Have Been Put On Hold

Lucasfilm has confirmed that “multiple” Star Wars spinoff movies are still in active development, contrary to a report from Collider earlier this week that claimed the studio was halting development on future spinoffs under the “A Star Wars Story” brand.

ABC News reports that Lucasfilm is moving forward with additional projects separate from Rian Johnson’s new trilogy of films and another being developed by Game of Thrones producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, which the Collider story had reported were still in development.

Lucasfilm has said that reports indicating that all future standalone Star Wars anthology films are being put on hold following the disappointing box office reception to Solo: A Star Wars Story are “inaccurate.” The studio would not reveal what these standalone projects are, however.

We’ve previously heard that Lucasfilm is developing an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie and a Boba Fett solo film from Logan director James Mangold and it would seem that those projects are still moving ahead, unless Lucasfilm says otherwise.

As things stand, the only officially announced Star Wars film right now is Episode IX, which comes out next year.
