Polygon Asks: What is the future of Star Wars movies? #SciFiSunday

After getting the official word that Star Wars: Rogue Squadron is no longer happening (at least any time soon), Michael McWhertor over at Polygon speculated about the updated timeline of theatrical releases within the Star Wars universe. McWhertor points out that even though fans are right to be disappointed at the consistent carrot-dangling and the lengthy wait-times between big film releases, Star Wars spin-offs are often more artfully made than their big box office counterparts, and it’s unlikely there will be any shortage of content on that front.

Currently, Star Wars fans’ best hope seems to be the planned Star Wars theatrical project from writer-director Taika Waititi, who’s coming off the tepidly received Thor: Love and Thunder, a potentially worrying bellwether. In-development projects set in the Star Wars galaxy from filmmakers Josh Trank, Colin Trevorrow, Patty Jenkins, and David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have been scrapped or fizzled out after those directors’ respective Hollywood misfires. (Fantastic Four, The Book of Henry, Wonder Woman 1984, and Game of Thrones’ finale.) Given Star Wars’ recent shaky history with luring in and then losing talent, it isn’t a safe bet that Waititi’s plan to expand the galaxy with brand-new characters and worlds will ever come to fruition.
