A mysterious Star Wars production has emerged in the most recent issue of Production Weekly under the title “Untitled Star Wars Project,” leading fans to guess what the project is. Because both Andor Season 2 and Skeleton Crew were listed in the most recent edition, some theorized that it could be a television series we’re currently unaware of.
According to insider Bespin Bulletin, the untitled project is actually Taika Waititi’s upcoming Star Wars film. Furthermore, the description reveals that the untitled Star Wars film is currently in development and will be filming in Los Angeles, though no start date has been specified. It’ll be interesting if Waititi’s project will become the first Star Wars film to utilize The Volume. Interestingly enough, this listing popped up less than a week after Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy announced that Taika Waititi’s Star Wars film would be released in “late 2023.”
At this point, I find it highly unlikely that Taika Waititi will be able to hit the late 2023 release mark as that would put the incredibly busy filmmaker/actor on a very tight timeline. And most of us fans don’t want is a rushed project just to fulfill a deadline.
Hopefully, we’ll get more concrete information on his project soon, possibly later this summer.
