Star Wars Story Spinoffs ON HOLD

Posted by Dustin on June 20, 2018 at 02:28 PM CST

From Collider.com:

BREAKING NEWS: Collider.com is exclusively reporting that Disney and Lucasfilm have paused pre-production on the Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff in order to focus on J.J. Abrams' Episode IX and the next series of Star Wars films, be it Rian Johnson's trilogy or new movies from Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. This comes on the heels of the disappointing box office performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story, which was released in May in the middle of a crowded summer movie season, rather than in December. Solo arrived six months after The Last Jedi, and Lucasfilm needs to keep Star Wars movies feeling like can't-miss events. Lucasfilm's development process is notoriously mysterious, so this is simply a snapshot of where things stand right now in the Star Wars universe.

Steve Weintraub and Jeff Sneider offer their thoughts on this breaking news and explore what it will mean for the Star Wars franchise.
