Okay it’s now being reported that there will be both a High Republic movie and an Old Republic movie. The High Republic movie will go first (in 2023).
The High Republic film (set a couple hundred years before the Skywalker saga) is during a time when the Sith are basically a myth. The movie will apparently be small-scale and small-budget and aimed primarily at kids. A reliable source said a few years ago that Rian Johnson’s movie was gonna be “Rated-G Star Wars,” so I’m guessing this is probably his.
The Old Republic film (set thousands of years in the past) is almost around the time when the Jedi and Sith first formed and were both in their primes. It’s apparently gonna be big-budget, big-scaled and aimed more at general audiences. A reliable source said last year that Taika Waititi’s movie would deal with the origins of the Jedi in some way, so I’m guessing this is probably his.
Its also now being reported that Chloe Zhao (the woman who directed Nomadland and Eternals) will be directing Kevin Feige’s Star Wars movie (which is separate from the two projects above). Feige came up with the story idea, and Michael Waldron (who runs the Loki show) is fleshing out the script. We still don’t know anything story-wise about this one.
Patty Jenkins’s Rogue Squadron movie is “delayed indefinitely” (aka canceled) and JD Dillard’s Exegol movie hasn’t been talked about since it was first announced in 2019 so I think it’s safe to call that project dead too.
