According to a recent article by The Hollywood Reporter, Lindelof has apparently been working to set out the new Star Wars movie produced by Damon Lindelof and Oscar-winning director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy.
The Rise of Skywalker, a 2019 J.J. Abrams picture, will take place before Lindelof’s unnamed Star Wars film, which will be a stand-alone feature, according to the outlet’s sources. It was also made known that a few members of the sequel trilogy might make an appearance in the upcoming movie.
Additionally, according to the outlet’s sources, Lindelof oversaw a private writers’ room after the Star Wars Celebration this year. Patrick Somerville (Leftovers, Station Eleven), Rayna McClendon (Obi-Wan Kenobi, Willow), Andy Greenwald (Briarpatch), Dave Filoni (Ahsoka), and other actors joined Lindelof for a two-week session in July. In addition, Lindelof will develop the project’s screenplay with Justin Britt-Gibson (The Counterpart).
Additional information about the newest Star Wars film from Lucasfilm is still under wraps. Two untitled projects are scheduled for December 2025 and December 2027 by the studio. It is unknown if the movie starring Lindelof and Obaid-Chinoy will be released during one of these times.
