Currently, the production company has shows like Andor, The Mandalorian Season 3, Ahsoka, and The Acolyte all lined up and rumor has it that more television projects are on the way. However, one series reportedly got canceled by Kathleen Kennedy herself.

According to tipster Mike Zeroh, the Lucasfilm President just canceled an intriguing project which would have seen her getting full creative control over it. The untitled series is reportedly a spinoff of the upcoming Acolyte show and original plans call for it to be announced during the Star Wars presentation at this year's D23 Expo. As it stands, no other details about the supposed cancelation have been disclosed.

Of course, this rumor has yet to be confirmed yet so take this one with a huge grain of salt. It's worth noting though that fans of the franchise have previously blamed Kennedy for the failure of the sequel trilogy and it the latest report surrounding her supposed project is actually true, Lucasfilm just dodged disaster because we all know how the fandom would've reacted.

Meanwhile, speaking of shows, Andor will be premiering back-to-back episodes on Disney+ on August 31.
