Daisy Ridley

Recently, a lot of space in the media has been devoted to the film “Star Wars: New Jedi Order” (this is not the official title), whose heroine will be Rey Skywalker thanks to Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. As it now turns out, her controversial statements, which divided Star Wars fans, may have been a reaction to behind-the-scenes problems, which apparently resulted in the project being suspended indefinitely.

LucasFilm argues with the screenwriter. Will Steven Knight leave the project?

“Star Wars: New Jedi Order” was announced two years ago and for a long time it seemed that it would be the first cinematic spectacle from the Star Wars universe since the end of the new trilogy in 2019.

However, the project does not have an easy path. Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson were originally responsible for the film’s plot . However, they abandoned it at the beginning of last year. It was then that Steven Knight was hired to prepare the plot . Unfortunately, World of Reel reports that the text he prepared was not well received at LucasFilm . Knight received so many comments that it was easier to start from scratch than to rework the text. Knight’s frustration level has increased to such an extent that he has now stopped working on the script for the show and started refining the plot of the film sequel to the “Peaky Blinders” series . Shooting for it is scheduled for autumn.

What’s happening at LucasFilm?

As a result, all signs on earth and in heaven indicate that “Star Wars: New Jedi Order” will not be created anytime soon .

Meanwhile, Star Wars fans were recently surprised by the information that the first feature-length film from 2019 will be “The Mandalorian & Grogu” .

It seems that this decision also surprised some of the creators of the series “The Mandalorian” . There is information on the Internet that before work on the film began, the scriptwriters had already written quite a lot of material for the previously planned fourth season of “The Mandalorian” . Now these texts will probably form the basis of the film’s plot.
