New Star Wars movie is ‘climax event’ for ‘Mandalorian’ spinoff

Mando, Boba and Ahsoka appear to be destined for the big screen, in a new Star Wars movie to be directed by franchise expert Dave Filoni.

Appearing on stage at the London Star Wars Celebration on Friday morning, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy announced no less than three new Star Wars films, which will be directed by star wars rebels Creator/mandalorian EP Filoni, Oscar nominee James Mangold (Logan, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate) and two-time Oscar winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy (Save face, A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness).

Set in the “past, present and future” respectively, Mangold’s film will be set 25,000 years in the past and chronicle Dawn of the Jedi; Filoni’s entrance will serve as the “highlight” of The Mandalorian and his contemporariesBoba Fett’s Book and the next Ahsoka); and Obaid-Chinoy’s feature comes 15 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker and has trilogy star Daisy Ridley reprising her role as Rey.

No schedule has even been suggested for any of the three films.

The Mandalorian currently airing its third season on Wednesdays, with two episodes remaining, while the Rosario Dawson directed Ahsoka is now penciled in for an August 2023 release (watch the trailer).

Boba Fett’s Book aired its finale well over a year ago, and there’s been no word on any additional seasons – though mandalorian director Rick Famuyiwa told Star Wars Celebration on Friday that the next two episodes of The Mandalorian will offer a “resolution” to its own season as well as Boba Fett’s Book.
