The feature film will be theatrically released on an as-yet-unannounced date.
Production[edit | edit source]
In January 2020, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Taika Waititi was approached to work on a Star Wars movie. The project was officially announced on May 4, 2020 on StarWars.com, confirming Waititi's involvement and the addition of Krysty Wilson-Cairns as a co-writer.
During a Disney investor's broadcast in December 2020, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that Waititi and Wilson-Cairns were already at work on the film's script. A Star Wars logo designed in Waititi's signature style was shown during the film's portion of the announcement, along with art featuring a diamond-shaped object floating in space. No further information about the film was revealed.
