On the other hand, Taika Waititi is already looking for the protagonist of his film from the Star Wars universe. In fact, some options are already being considered.
Even in a galaxy far, far away, there are often logistical complications, unexpected resignations, and scheduling issues. Not even with all the capital in the world, Star Wars is the exception when it comes to cumbersome situations. The saga is experiencing a great moment for some of its productions, but also a period of unknowns for other of its most longed-for projects. Doubt is flooding the corridors of Lucasfilm and little is understood; in part, due to the little information that has been obtained.

Until now, two series already developed (Skeleton Crew and Ahsoka), as well as some planned. The Acolyte, Lando, and A Droid Story are coming to Disney+ in the near future. All these titles remain on the agenda as a high priority.
However, the same is not the case with movies. Apparently, there are creative or executive difficulties in managing the works for the big screen. In addition to the previous titles, the great production company had on the table a tape directed by Kevin Feige and another for Patty Jenkins.
Kevin Feige, many issues to deal with
On Feige’s there were several details of great importance. This would be the first time that the president of Marvel Studios directed a major film. His name in Hollywood is entirely due to his work as producer, but on set it would be a very responsible platform for his debut. Although the reasons why this will no longer be done for now are not known, it is advocated that it was due to conflicts in the agenda.
It should be noted that the businessman is in the middle of phases 5 and 6 with the UCM, so your time is reduced to the maximum. Calendars are being put together until 2026 for the superhero franchise and right now it is going through a creative crisis.
Another loss for Patty Jenkins
On the other hand, Patty Jenkins did have much more information about the project that she would lead. It was a feature film titled Rogue Squadron, which would focus on rebel pilots. This would have a large female presence and great thematic content associated with aviation.
Jenkins’ father was an aviator and the filmmaker is an expert on superheroines, so it was going to be a piece of cake. Not while, some details centered on the priorities of Star Wars did not allow the making of this film. After this, the developer was left out of DC and Lucasfilm in less than a year.
The sole winner: Taika Waititi
Although all of the above could discourage fans of the galactic saga a bit, it does not mean that the studio wants to put cinema aside. On the contrary, they have their sights set on the seventh art as it has always been. Eight Path of the Jedi movies and two spin-offs would have been just the start of a powerful franchise.
Taika Waititi, who already worked on The Mandalorian, is still standing with his Star Wars movie. Apparently, the green light is so much that the director is already looking for the protagonist. Sources in Hollywood confirm that options are even handled.
“Look, I think for the Star Wars universe to expand, it has to expand. I don’t think it’s going to do any good in the Star Wars universe if I make a movie where everyone says, ‘Oh, great, well, those are the plans for the Millennium Falcon, oh, that’s Grandma’s. Chewbacca‘. That all stands on its own, it’s cool, but I’d like to take something new and create some new characters. Just expand the world. Otherwise, it seems that it is a very small story, ”said the creative.
