Though Star Wars on the small screen continues to grow and flourish, on the big screen there hasn't been a trip to the galaxy far, far away since 2019's The Rise Of Skywalker. And if Variety's sources are to be believed, we could be waiting longer since both Kevin Feige's planned movie and Patty Jenkins' Rogue Squadron are both effectively shut down at Lucasfilm.

Jenkins' movie was already seemingly suffering from engine trouble as the director delayed work on it to focus on a third Wonder Woman project, but returned when that was rejected by Warner Bros./DC. And while she's said it remains in development, the trade mag has heard it's effectively grounded.

As for Feige, he had Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness writer Michael Waldron at work on the script for his untitled movie, but it would seem that the producer's duties overseeing the Marvel Cinematic Universe are keeping him from real forward movement.

On a brighter note, Taika Waititi is still working away at his film — and has indicated he might also star in it — and there are the other possibilities at play, including a film that has Ms. Marvel's Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy attached to direct and Damon Lindelof writing the screenplay. Rian Johnson, meanwhile, has ambitions to return to the Star Wars galaxy but it busy with the next Knives Out sequel and a second season of TV's Poker Face.

Disney and Lucasfilm have a December 2025 release slot ready for a new movie, but no official title to fill it yet. We should find out more when Star Wars Celebration, running between 7-10 April in London.
