Back at the 2023 Star Wars Celebration, Rey was said to be getting her own movie that could pave the way to more. A new Jedi Order, now it seems with the announcement of a Jon Favreau directed Mandalorian movie that is set to being filming soon the Rey movie has either gotten lost in the mixed or is being reshuffled to a later date.
Before The Mandalorian film had been made public, actress Daisy Ridley had said back in November she had not seen a script for the Rey New Jedi Order film. That seemed odd because at Celebration her movie was touted as the next film to be made. One insider with a lot of information said that the Rey movie has not even been written yet.
The informant went on to say that does not mean it’s not going to happen, just nothing has happened to this point. That could be because with another Mandalorian film this one being directed by Dave Filoni has characters like Ezra Bridger, Sabine Wren and others who could be part of The New Jedi Order if that is the way Favreau and Filoni want to go.
When the Rey film was announced it was met with lukewarm response from the fan base. Disney/ Lucasfilm is attempting to get back in the good grace’s of the fans and could be taking a slightly safer path by releasing the widely popular Mandalorian film first. That remains to be seen.
It has been revealed The Mandalorian film will be the finale of Season 4, the rest will be released in six episodes. This is an interesting time for Star Wars, Favreau and Filoni, as they push Star Wars in a new direction while linking it to all other areas.
Dave Filoni also stated that they will use all aspects including things that are not cannon if it helps and paints a bigger picture.
