There's no denying that the Star Wars franchise has been on quite a roll over the last three years with Lucasfilm using the Disney+ platform to great effect. However, on the film side of things, it looks like the production company is having a hard time matching the momentum of shows like The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan Kenobi, with several films either being delayed or put on the shelf permanently altogether.

This week though, some promising news regarding the future of Star Wars films came to light with Lucasfilm reportedly developing a new theatrical project led by Damon Lindelof and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. Now, more details about the exciting project are being disclosed.

As per a follow-up scoop from The Hollywood Reporter, Lindelof and Obaid-Chinoy's upcoming big-screen project includes an impressive writer's room including Patrick Somerville (The Leftovers), Rayna McClendon (Willow), and Andy Greenwald (Briarpatch).

The outlet also claims that The Mandalorian's Dave Filoni also joined their writing session last July, suggesting that he could also be involved in the series. Filoni, of course, is beloved by fans of the franchise and has proven time and time again that he has his finger on the pulse, especially when given free rein creatively so he'd definitely be a great addition to the project.

To be clear, Filoni was also involved in the sequel trilogy in some capacity so it's no longer surprising how he might end up becoming part of the untitled film. But we'd like to assume that with the success of his recent Star Wars ventures, he'll have more creative pull this time around than he did with the sequels. While it's still a little too early to rejoice, the future of Star Wars films is looking quite promising.

Meanwhile, you can get your Star Wars fix over at Disney+.
