During the Studio Panel of Star Wars Celebration Europe 2023, Lucasfilm announced three new films that would be coming to theaters in the next few years. First up it seems, will be the Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy directed movie featuring the return of Daisy Ridley as Rey Skywalker. The movie is set 15 years after Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and will see Rey setting up the New Jedi Order.

Speaking with Yahoo UK exclusively following Saturday’s Ahsoka panel, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy shared that a script for the upcoming film is imminent.

We’ve been working on that [film] for a few years and all of that feeds in to our overall storytelling, said Kennedy.
So we’ve just got to a point now where we’ve got a wonderful writer in Steven Knight, he’s come on board and we’re going to see a script probably in the next month and a half that we’ve been working on for quite a while.
So we’re getting close.

Steven Knight recently took over writing duties on the film after Damon Lindelof left. If the script is turned in in six weeks, then it will probably take a few more to look over it and give it a final approval. Look for this film to start filming at some point late this year or early next year.
