No connections in Feige’s Star Wars movies teases writer Michael Waldron. We’ve known for a while now that Waldron is currently writing a Star Wars movie to be produced by Marvel’s Kevin Feige. So far Feige’s Star Wars movie has been a complete mystery. What era is this, will it be connected to any other era’s explored? Well, in a recent chat with Variety about Waldron’s most recent movie, Multiverse of Madness, the scribe opened up a small amount about his next project.
“We’re finally into it in earnest. I mean, I’m writing away. It’s a lot of fun. I’m enjoying having the freedom on that to do something that’s not necessarily a sequel or anything. It maybe has a little bit less of a — it just doesn’t have a bunch of TV shows and movies that you’re servicing on top of it, the way I did with “Doctor Strange.” So it’s nice. It feels like a different exercise.”
I mean, it’s not like Star Wars doesn’t have a hunch of movies and TV shows to service, is it? Which does make one think that perhaps this movie will be set in a different era from all the others. Perhaps even an Old Republic tale that fans have been hoping to see for a long time? Or better still, what about some new story set 200 years after the events of The Rise of Skywalker?
Most of the Star Wars content coming out on Disney+ is in service of what’s come before. However, that will change with The Acolyte, which will be set long before The Phantom Menace. We also have that ‘Grammar Rodeo’ project that starts filming this year. We’ve been told that show is based in the High Republic era, and so have other insiders.
The movies themselves, who can say? We really don’t know where Rogue Squadron is supposed to take place? My guess is post The Rise of Skywalker, but that is merely a guess. Then again, one wonders if that film will ever shoot? As for Taika Waititi’s Star Wars movie, currently due to arrive ahead of Feige’s Star Wars movie? Well, we have even less of a clue than we do with this one, sorry.
I really am looking forward to seeing what Feige and Waldron come up with for their movie and I’ll be intrigued to know who ends up directing the film.
