Oh, goody. Here we go.

Earlier this week, we reported on some news from Collider that stated Lucasfilm was pretty much putting all their non-mainline Star Wars film on hold. Trusted outlet Star Wars News Net corroborated this report, going on to say that Disney was looking to focus only on one film at a time going forward, with an emphasis on trilogies and films that push forward a larger narrative. Now, we’re hearing a different story from Lucasfilm itself.

ABC News (who shares a parent company with Lucasfilm) got in touch with the studio, and the studio is stating that the reports about the spin-off films being on hold are inaccurate. They go on to say that there are “multiple” Star Wars films in development that have yet to be announced — films that are separate from Rian Johnson’s trilogy and Game of Thrones creators’ series of films.

Yet, even if those reports are inaccurate, it’s hard not to believe there was a kernel of truth somewhere. The question is…what is that truth?

If true, what do you think about Lucasfilm supposedly not putting the kibosh on the spin-off films like Boba Fett and Obi-Wan? Or perhaps that “kernel” I mentioned had to do with them canceling movies that rely on pre-existing characters. There’s a whole lot to digest here, so I’ll leave it to you all to speculate.
