It goes without saying that the Star Wars universe has been dominating the world of streaming since Lucasfilm released The Mandalorian in 2019. However, the same thing can't be said for the beloved franchise's film slate, and after the uber-divisive The Rise of Skywalker, the production company has been plagued with multiple setbacks.

Last month, Lucasfilm finally announced during Star Wars Celebration in London that the franchise is back on track, with Daisy Ridley set to headline a new movie centered on the establishment of a new Jedi Order.

The film is said to take place 15 years after Episode IX and will see Rey Skywalker create her own order with the help of Luke Skywalker's teachings. Speaking of the Jedi Master, it looks like Mark Hamill will actually be involved in the yet-to-be-titled film along with another Star Wars icon.

Giant Freakin Robot reports that the post-sequel trilogy film helmed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy will feature the respective returns of Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker and Hayden Christensen's Anakin Skywalker.

Although unconfirmed, The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett star Ming-Na Wen is evidently excited about the possibility and shared the news on Twitter. Does she know something we don't?

As exciting as the prospect is, it's still best to temper expectations on this one as GFR doesn't exactly have the best track record when it comes to insider information. If it ends up being true, however, it will mark the first time Hamill and Christensen work together on a Star Wars project.

Although it's been nearly four years since the Skywalker Saga has concluded, Hamill has remained an integral part of Star Wars, being involved in the MandoVerse.

As for Christensen, the overwhelming reception to his return in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series didn't go unnoticed and it looks like Lucasfilm is going to capitalize on the hype his epic comeback delivered.

Hopefully, the next Star Wars film will be able to remove the bad taste the sequels left in the mouths of many.

Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy's Star Wars film is expected to hit theaters sometime in 2025.
