ABC News has now released a story with Lucasfilm sources that claim that there are still “multiple unannounced” films that are still in development at Lucasfilm. This is a response to a report by Collider claiming that future spinoff movies were being put on hold for the time being.
The report once again mentions that an Obi Wan Kenobi spinoff was rumored but never truly confirmed. They say these developing films are separate from Rian Johnson’s announced trilogy and Benioff and Weiss’ confirmed films.
Obviously I feel like I have to take this report with a grain of salt. ABC is obviously a Disney company and this report could be just getting a release to stop the bleeding. Lucasfilm is still keeping their cards close to their chest and there are no word on what these developing films could be.
I’ll still be shocked if we get a spinoff announcement any time soon, but who knows at this point? In some ways this drama about the spinoff movies have just made fans more confused about what is in the pipeline and what isn’t. Its probably the way Disney and Lucasfilm want it to be for now.
Do you think this report is true? Or is Disney/Lucasfilm just doing damage control for now?
