Lucasfilm denies reports declaring their standalone Star Wars films dead

Turns out that the possibility of a Kenobi, Boba Fett or other anthology story films might still happen

Reports of the demise of Lucasfilm & Disney’s planned anthology/spinoff Star Wars films might not be correct.

After a report arose from Collider, that stated sources had informed them that following the not quite hoped for low returns of Solo: A Star Wars Story the rest of the planned possible spinoffs were on hold, Lucasfilm has denied that report.

According to ABC News, who reached out to the studio following the Collider report, Lucasfilm representatives called the report “inaccurate.”

Lucasfilm told ABC News there are still “multiple” Star Wars films currently in development that have not been officially announced. Those projects are moving forward separate from an already-announced “Star Wars” trilogy being overseen by “The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson and another series of movies from “Game of Thrones” producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

The original Collider report mentioned that the trilogy from Johnson and the films from Benioff and Weiss were still in development and would happen, but that films for Obi-Wan Kenobi & Boba Fett among others would not move forward. Those films are not mentioned in Lucasfilm’s response, but that is because while there have been rumblings about Kenobi and Boba Fett and even a Yoda film for years the studio has never officially any of those films and would not make such official announcements in a prepared statement to a news site.

Since those films have not been announced there is no way to ever tell if they were actually planned should they never materialize, but fans will just have to be patient and wait to see what else is coming.

As of now, Lucasfilm is still moving forward with films, with Star Wars: Episode IX set to begin production soon for a December 2019 release.
