Lucasfilm BUMPS the Rey Movie for The Mandalorian?!

Disney is fast-tracking a movie based on The Mandalorian for 2025, and it sounds like they’ve bumped the ill-conceived Rey Palpatine movie as a result. Could Disney be getting cold feet, and deciding that the Rey movie isn’t a terribly good idea…?

Additional Context:
The Star Wars universe is set to expand further with a plethora of new movies and shows announced for release in 2024 and beyond. Among these exciting new ventures, two notable projects stand out: the live-action “Mandalorian & Grogu” movie and the Rey-centered film.

The Mandalorian & Grogu Movie
Release Date & Production: The “Mandalorian & Grogu” movie, officially announced by Lucasfilm, is slated to begin production later in 2024. Fans can anticipate this movie to be one of the next Star Wars films to hit cinemas since “The Rise of Skywalker” in 2019.

Plot & Setting: No specific story details have been released yet. However, the end of “The Mandalorian” Season 3, which saw Din and Grogu relaxing at their new homestead on Nevarro, hints at potential storylines. The film’s setting in the timeline could be immediately after the events of “The Mandalorian” Season 3 and the first season of “Ahsoka”.

Direction & Production: Jon Favreau, the series creator of “The Mandalorian”, will direct the film. He is well-known for kickstarting the MCU with “Iron Man” and has a track record with major projects like “Elf”, “The Lion King”, and “The Jungle Book”.

Implications for Star Wars Universe: This movie could serve as a significant point to revitalize Star Wars’ theatrical presence, especially considering the successful reception of “The Mandalorian” series on Disney+​​​​.

The Rey-Centered Movie
Production & Release Date: The Rey-focused movie is expected to begin production in 2024. There were initial reports of a December 2025 release, but due to industry strikes and other setbacks, the release has reportedly been delayed.

Storyline & Direction: The movie, set fifteen years after “The Rise of Skywalker”, focuses on Rey as she attempts to rebuild the Jedi Order. Directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and based on a script by Steven Knight, it promises to delve into the post-war, post-First Order era where the Jedi are in disarray.
