One of the 3 new Star Wars movies announced at Celebration 2023 is a theatrical film by James Mangold.
The film will be set at the dawn of the Jedi, telling the tale of the “first Jedi to wield the Force.”
Of his film, Mangold said he “thought about a biblical epic, like a Ten Commandments and the dawning of the Force. Where did the Force come from? When did we discover it? When did we know how to use it? And a story just started developing.”
According to Mangold, it will be set 25,000 years prior to the original Star Wars.

I love Mangold’s work. Just as a directer alone his films such as Logan, Copland, 3:10 to Yuma, Girl Interrupted, and Walk the Line, are all memorable and enjoyable films to me. So I hope his Star Wars film will also follow suit.
Maybe we’ll see some nods and references from The Dawn Of The Jedi story from the comic series? I hope this film does use the ‘Dawn of the Jedi’ title, though at this point I am just hoping it actually gets made!
