Exclusive: Plans for future 'A Star Wars Story' films—including the Obi-Wan movie—have been put on hold. https://t.co/nxfLHM1EB6— Collider (@Collider) June 20, 2018
From the article:
- "Sources with knowledge of the situation" say Lucasfilm is focusing on Star Wars: Episode IX and the next trilogy after it.
- Spinoffs like Solo: A Star Wars Story, including an Obi-Wan film that was actively in development, are on hold.
- This comes in the wake of rocky behind-the-scenes experiences on all so-called anthology films so far (a Boba Fett film, Rogue One, and Solo), as well as "mixed-positive reviews" and relatively low financial returns for Solo.
