A Star Wars film is currently being developed by Lucasfilm Ltd. It will be directed by Taika Waititi, who previously directed "Chapter 8: Redemption" from The Mandalorian and will co-write it with Star Wars newcomer Krysty Wilson-Cairns. The feature film is planned for a theatrical release in late 2023.
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.
In May 2022, Kennedy revealed in a feature for Vanity Fair that Waititi's film was next in the pipeline of upcoming projects and, in an interview with GamesRadar+, confirmed that it was planned for a late 2023 release.
