Lucasfilm Reportedly Sticking With Proven Directors On Star Wars Films

Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars

According to Collider, part of the Lucasfilm plan to shelve the Star Wars Story series was to focus on developing plans for the Skywalker saga after Episode IX, specifically "the next trilogy".

Logan director James Mangold was also reportedly set to helm a Boba Fett movie, but this report doesn't indicate what will happen to the solo movie focused on the bounty hunter, though it seems safe to say it won't go into production.

Of course, to be fair, "Solo" opened in the far busier summer season versus the year-end holidays when the three most recent "Star Wars" movies debuted.

Solo did really well by any blockbuster standard when it came to the box office, but didn't quite hit the the lofty expectations Disney has for such a massive Star Wars event.

Optus Faces World Cup Broadcast Backlash
Contrary to the claims of users, Optus asserts the "majority" of customers are having a "good" World Cup "broadcast experience". As a result of these actions incidences of buffering reduced significantly during the course of the night to low levels.

The spinoff was expected to rake in over $100 million domestically during opening week, much like it's predecessor - "Rogue One" - did in 2016, when it opened to $155 million. Lucasfilm's development process is notoriously mysterious, so this is simply a snapshot of where things stand right now in the Star Wars universe.

It's been a while since we've had the chance to break out the Star Wars Rumour Alert Klaxon, but this feels like an appropriate moment.

Following the disaster known as Han Solo, it's rumored the first fallout comes in the form of any additional Star Wars spinoffs being placed on hold.

The well-publicised firing of original Solo directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller meant extensive and hugely expensive reshoots took place. Most pressing is the completion of the Sequel Trilogy with Star Wars: Episode IX, which will presumably conclude the much-studied stories of Rey, Finn, and Kylo Ren.
