With The Rise of Skywalker heralding the end of an era for the Star Wars franchise, it appears the whole Star Wars Universe is ready for a new beginning of sorts. The current Disney+ The Mandalorian is teasing some of those new beginnings, but on the movie front it appears that nothing is set in stone. The initial trilogies that were in development by the Game of Thrones showrunners have been canned and the supposed trilogy that Rian Jonson was working on is also staying radio silent. Kevin Feige is supposedly working on a new Star Wars movie, but that could be a long time away given his current Marvel commitments. So it was assumed that Star Wars films will be given a break for now while the studio figures out where to go next.
Within all this news it is surprising that there is actually another Star Wars movie currently in development according to The Hollywood Reporter (https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/star-wars-movie-works-jd-dillard-matt-owens-1280459). While details on what the actual film is about are still a tightly kept secret, the new report claims that Sleight director J.D. Dillard is set to helm the project based off a script from Luke Cage writer Matt Owens.
