Star Wars fans, brace yourself: a new movie is in the works, but the first known information is disconcerting to say the least…
Any Star Wars Episode X news?
Never short of new ideas to expand its borders a little more, the Star Wars galaxy is preparing for the arrival of a brand new major star that may well be called Star Wars Episode X. Because, beyond the launch of new series exclusive to the Disney+ platform (Star Wars: Obi-wan Kenobi, Star Wars Andor, Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi), fans are especially watching for announcements concerning an upcoming feature film. . And the last rumors precisely evoked the start of a new Star Wars film in the hands of producer and screenwriter Damon Lindelof.
These rumors are confirmed today by journalists from The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline. Damon Lindelof is well and truly at work on an upcoming Star Wars film for which he will put his talents as a screenwriter to good use of which we were able to have a good overview on the series Lost, Watchmen or even The Leftovers. Damon Lindelof also wrote the screenplays for the films Star Trek Into Darkness by JJ Abrams (with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci), Prometheus by Ridley Scott (with John Spaiht) and The Hunt by Craig Zobel. But that’s not all…
The next Star Wars movie has chosen its director
If we still know very little about this new film, we still know since today the name of its director. This is Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, credited on two documentary films and especially on two episodes of the Miss Marvel series. Launched last June on the Disney+ streaming platform, this series was not unanimously accepted by fans of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) by targeting an audience of teenagers around the character of Kamala Khan, a young Pakistani fan. of heroine Captain Marvel.
Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy therefore directed episodes 4 and 5 of the Miss Marvel series and she was chosen to direct the next Star Wars movie scripted by Damon Lindelof. Note that Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy is also known for being the first filmmaker of Pakistani origin to have won an Oscar for her work as a documentary filmmaker on Saving Face and A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness. If the project is still in its infancy, we still know that Damon Lindelof will not be alone in the script since he will only be co-screenwriter alongside a person whose name has not been yet been communicated.
