New Star Wars Movie Rumored To Begin Production Soon

The next Star Wars film which is scheduled to release in theaters in December 2025 could be preparing for production soon.

The news comes from  MakingStarWars YouTube which reports the following:

I was talking to some people at Pinewood [Studios] and there’s some evidence that they will be shooting a Star Wars movie, I don’t think shooting, beginning construction on a Star Wars movie around April to May. So if you think about it, this might actually be a good sign for the Taika Waititi project. How it sounds like it’s going to go is Taika is going to turn in his movie around December and then they’ll [Lucasfilm] know. And if it does happen, around April or May they will start making sets. That’s what I have heard. That’s me, okay?”

As always, since nothing has been confirmed by Disney or Lucasfilm, we will treat this as a rumor for now.

Not much is known about Taika Waititi’s untitled Star Wars project that is being written alongside Krysty Wilson-Cairns, however, The Hollywood Reporter reported over the summer the project was eyeing an early 2023 filming start date.

Another project that has been gaining momentum is Damon Lindelof’s (Lost, Watchmen) untitled Star Wars movie. According to Deadline, Oscar-winner and Ms. Marvel director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy will helm the project. Plot details for the new film are being kept under wraps however it will be set after the events of Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker. The film is not a continuation of the Skywalker Saga but could feature characters who were introduced in the sequel trilogy.

Insiders report that the script is still being written for Lindelof’s Star Wars film however according to a new report from The Hot Mic Podcast, which is hosted by John Rocha and Jeff Sneider, the film may hit the big screens earlier than previously thought.  According to what Sneider has heard, Damon Lindelof’s Star Wars movie will be the next Star Wars film to release in theaters in December 2025.

Disney Plus Informer will keep you updated with any news for both Star Wars projects.
