"Well we're 15 years out from Rise of Skywalker, so we're post-war, post-First Order, and the Jedi are in disarray. There's a lot of discussion around, 'Who are the Jedi? What are they doing? What's the state of the galaxy?' [Rey]'s attempting to rebuild the Jedi Order, based on the books, based on what she promised Luke, so that's where we're going."
―Kathleen Kennedy[4]

An upcoming live-action Star Wars film helmed by director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy is in development. It will feature Jedi Master Rey Skywalker (played by Daisy Ridley) as she builds a new Jedi Order after the events of the 2019 sequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker. The screenplay will be written by Steven Knight, replacing Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson.



Jedi Master Rey Skywalker would usher in an era of a renewed Jedi Order.

Fifteen years after the Battle of Exegol,[3] in the New Jedi Order Era,[5] Jedi Master Rey Skywalker builds a new Jedi Order.[1] However, her efforts are opposed by rising powers that aim to destroy the new Order.[6]


Initial reports[]

On March 14, 2022, The Ankler reported that Damon Lindelof was working as a writer on a new Star Wars film.[7] On May 26, while at Celebration Anaheim, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that future films in the Star Wars franchise would take place after the events of the sequel trilogy, saying "[the sequel era] is what we talk a lot about in terms of where we're going with our movies, and just how far out from that we'll go. That's very much the space we're concentrating on."[8] On October 23, Deadline reported that Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy had boarded the project to direct Lindelof's script.[9] The next day, on October 24, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Justin Britt-Gibson joined Lindelof as a co-writer on the project after Lucasfilm held a "secret writers room" for two weeks in July with various creative figures present. The report also claimed that the project would be set after the events of Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker.[10] On December 2, Daisy Ridley visited Lucasfilm headquarters for a meeting with Kathleen Kennedy. Ridley denied on social media that the meeting was for any future projects,[11] but later admitted in a November 2023 Hollywood Reporter interview that she had been offered a role in the film at that meeting.[12]

On March 22, 2023, Variety reported that Lindelof and Britt-Gibson departed the project a month prior in February and that Steven Knight was hired to rewrite the story.[13] On April 18, Lindelof officially commented on his departure from the project, saying that for him, the project was a "true labor of love." He also wished the film's creative team the best of luck.[14] On April 28, Lindelof elaborated, stating he worked extensively on the project and was then asked to leave.[15]

On April 13, This Week! in Star Wars confirmed that the film would take place fifteen years after The Rise of Skywalker.[3] On April 20, Obaid-Chinoy revealed that the film would be the next Star Wars film to release.[16] On November 21, in an interview with Collider, Daisy Ridley commented that she thought the story for the film was "really cool" and that the film was not what she expected, but she is nonetheless very excited to work on the film. Ridley also revealed that she was not approached for a part in the film until after February 2023.[17] As of January 2024, Lucasfilm confirmed the film was still in development and that they were waiting on the latest draft from Steven Knight.[18]
