And in day 3 of the ongoing rumor rounds regarding Lucasfilm’s plans for the unannouced Star Wars spinoff films, we finally have a trade weighing in. The Hollywood Reporter’s source says that development hasn’t slowed down, but the company is “licking their wounds”.
They say the Boba Fett project is “still being developed” with Simon Kinberg and James Mangold, though it may be “reconfigured” and “scaled down” – smaller budget, less risk. The Obi-wan situation (which reportedly involves director Stephen Daldry, plus a returning Ewan MacGregor) is less clear.
So basically: Lucasfilm is reevaluating, things are fluid, and they’re being generally more cautious. Or: Don’t expect any announcements to be forthcoming.
