In this new world where Disney owns Star Wars the rumors fly quicker than angry fan boys can complain about Rian Johnson ruining every memory they have of their childhood. In today’s rumor camp ABC News is reporting that the spinoff films are in fact not on hold.
ABC News is reporting that according to their Lucasfilm sources the Collider news from yesterday is “inaccurate”. Their sources instead are claiming that “there are still “multiple” Star Wars films currently in development that have not been officially announced.”
At this point in the cycle I believe we will hear a TON more rumors saying these films are on and these films are off. With over five hundred days left until the next Star Wars movie this is bound to not be the last we hear. I expect we will not even get any type of official word from Lucasfilm until Star Wars Celebration at the earliest.
As I stated yesterday I would love to see an Obi Wan movie in the future. I also understand where Lucasfilm would be coming from if they chose to take a step back and reevaluate where the Star Wars franchise is at. To read the full ABC News report you can click here.
