The next Star Wars movie may start pre-production soon

Reports of pre-production on the next Star Wars movie starting soon have surfaced, offering hope for the future of films in a galaxy far, far away. 

According to Making Star Wars via The Bespin Bulletin, filming for the next Star Wars movie may begin soon despite news on Star Wars’ cinematic efforts being quiet in recent years. 

“I was talking to some people at Pinewood [Studios] and there’s some evidence that they will be shooting a Star Wars movie, I don’t think shooting, beginning construction on a Star Wars movie around April to May.” reports Making Star Wars. 

“So if you think about it, this might actually be a good sign for the Taika Waititi project. How it sounds like it’s going to go is Taika is going to turn in his movie around December and then they’ll [Lucasfilm] know. And if it does happen, around April or May they will start making sets. That’s what I have heard. That’s me, okay?” 

In summary, the report is that construction on sets for the next Star Wars film may start in April to May, paving the way for filming and other parts of production later down the line, which in turn leads to the project’s release. 

At the time of writing, further details are unknown, and this is still a rumour therefore it should be taken with caution. However, this source has proven reputable in the past including their previous report on a returning character in Obi-Wan Kenobi

In the middle of 2022, it was reported that in an interview with TotalFilm, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy had stated that Taika’s film was aiming for a late 2023 release. While that time frame may have since moved, production would likely need to start fairly soon. 

Taika Waititi’s film is one of a few currently in development as well as other rumoured and confirmed projects as summarised in our latest guide
