For the moment, it seems the next “Star Wars” film to make it to cinemas will be that of ‘New Jedi Order,’ the film set roughly fifteen years after the events of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker”.

Pakistani-Canadian filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy (“Ms. Marvel”) is helming the project which will see Daisy Ridley return to the role of Rey in a movie being penned by “Peaky Blinders” creator Steven Knight.

The story sees Rey assuming the role of a mentor to some promising young students. Filming was originally rumored to begin in April next year at Pinewood Studios in the United Kingdom before strike-related delays pushed back the start date.

Obaid-Chinoy recently appeared on CNN and was asked about the movie to which she responded:

“I’m very thrilled about the project because I feel what we’re about to create is something very special. And we’re in 2024 now, and it’s about time that we had a woman come forward to shape a story in a galaxy far, far away.”

That confirms that despite the setbacks, the project isn’t hitting any serious issues and that Obaid-Chinoy is still very much working on the movie.

The project will mark the first time a woman has directed a “Star Wars” movie, not including the seemingly scrapped “Rogue Squadron” film which Patty Jenkins (“Wonder Woman”) was slated to helm.

Ridley stated back in November that she knew the storyline for the film but was waiting to read a script. The film is already slated for a May 22nd 2026 release.
