These days is taking place Star Wars Celebration London, in which the next big projects located in the Star Wars universe have been announced. That also means that other titles that were in progress seem to have been left in limbo, although in the case of ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’, kathleen kennedypresident of lucasfilmwanted to make it clear that a season 2 is ruled out for the moment:
It is not in active development. But I never say never, because there is always the possibility. The series was very well received and director Deborah Chow did a spectacular job. Ewan McGregor really wants to do another one. Everyone has gotten their hands on what we’re doing right now, as you can tell by what we showed everyone at Star Wars Celebration. Maybe we’ll come back to that later.
Come on, they may return to it in the future, but everything suggests that it is a way of not closing the door completely and that the Star Wars universe has come to focus on other projects. For example, hayden christensen will recover the mythical Darth Vader in ‘Ahsoka’ and zero surprises if Ewan McGregor It can also be seen in some other production.
And the Rian Johnson trilogy?
In addition, Kennedy also wanted to clarify that the new trilogy that he is going to direct rian johnson It’s still going to take a long time to be done. There the reason is quite simple, since a project of this magnitude requires a lot of time and the attention of the director of ‘The last jedi’ is currently focusing on ‘Stabs in the back 3’:
Rian and I talk all the time. He is incredibly busy. So we’re not actively involved in anything right now because he’s doing another one of the ‘Glass Onion’ movies and then God knows what else. But he really wants to get back on track. It’s a big time commitment so it’s up to him.
Lastly, Kennedy pointed out that the ‘Star Wars’ movie by Taika Waititi is still going, but that the director of ‘Jojo Rabbit’ doesn’t want anyone else involved in his writing. Hence, it may be taking longer than expected, but the president of Lucasfilm is clear that “he has a unique voice and we want to protect that“, promising in passing that “but we are going to do it some day“.
