Lucasfilm denies rumours of STAR WARS spin-off cancellations

Star Wars

Yesterday we brought you news of a troubling rumour from the Star Wars camp.

Collider was, at the time, reporting that future A Star Wars Story movies were not moving forwards in the wake of SoloA Star Wars Story failing to set the box office alight.

Now Lucasfilm itself has gone on record to say those rumours are not true. ABC reached out to Lucasfilm who referred to the report “inaccurate” and “speculative at best.” In fact, they say there are “multiple” Star Wars films currently in development many of which are yet to be announced. Those movies are expected to move forward separate from Rian Johnson’s new trilogy and another series of movies from Game of Thrones producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

For now it seems Lucasfilm are continuing with plans to expand the universe.
