CEO of Disney Bob Iger clarified a little about Star Wars movies status. Speaking at the Morgan Stanley technology, media and telecom conference, executive Lucasfilm said it was very cautious about its next film set in a galaxy far, far away. Although several ideas have been announced in development over the past few years, most have been scrapped, including this week’s announcement this Patty JenkinsRogue Squadron and Kevin Feige‘s untitled film is no longer moving forward at the studio. Iger said of the future of Star Wars: “We’re still in development Star Wars movies, but when we make one, we make sure it’s right. So we’re going to be very careful there.”

Iger cited the 2018 spin-off’s box office failure Solo: A Star Wars Story as the main reason for the change in the studio’s artistic output plan. The film saw not only disappointing results when it came to ticket sales, but complex production causing its budget to grow exponentially. Starring Alden Ehrenreich in a role first made famous by Harrison Ford, Solo As a young smuggler, he explains how he met Chewbacca and got his hands on the Millennium Falcon for the first time. Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson also featured in galactic heist adventures.

Further plans Star Wars the film is still unknown to the public, but with Star Wars Holiday Taking place in Europe in about a month, and with a December 19, 2025 release date for the untitled project, announcements about the future of the franchise may be imminent. Although Rian Johnsondirector behind The Last Jediis still under contract with Lucasfilm to develop a trilogy of original films, he is currently very busy with films. Knives Out movies.

After the critical reception of disappointment towards Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and releasing multiple projects in a short amount of time, the MCU is slowing down. “I think we have to look at what kind of characters and stories we’re mining. If you look at the trajectory of Marvel over the next five years, there’s going to be a lot of innovation. We’re going to go back to what it was. The Avengers For example, the franchise with the new Avengers collection.” said the CEO.
