Just Announced: New 'Star Wars' Feature Film for Theatrical Release
Just when you thought Star Wars Day couldn't get any better, a new feature film for theatrical release is announced and it is to be directed and co-written by Academy Award® winner Taika Waititi, who recently directed the first season finale episode of The Mandalorian on Disney+.
Working with Waititi on the screenplay will be Academy Award® nominee Krysty Wilson-Cairns (1917, Last Night in Soho).
There will also be a new Star Wars series for Disney+ developed by Emmy®-nominated writer Leslye Headland (Russian Doll, Bachelorette). Headland will write, executive produce, and serve as showrunner for the series. This new series is in addition to The Mandalorian, now in post-production on Season Two, and two other previously announced series: one based on Cassian Andor’s life prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and another following the adventures of Obi-Wan Kenobi between Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope.
Release dates for both projects have not yet been announced.
