Weiss. We previously learned that Johnson was creating a new trilogy of Star Wars films focusing on new characters in a new setting, and Benioff and Weiss were separately hired to create their own new series of films.

Amy Hennig, creative director behind the cancelled single-player Star Wars game known as Project Ragtag, has some thoughts on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and its status as a single-player game without microtransactions. Indeed, as Collider exclusively revealed last summer, Lucasfilm put a halt on plans for more spinoffs, like the Obi-Wan movie, following the box office disappointment of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

"I also think Respawn's game has the benefit of being largely developed before they were acquired", she posited. "They're working very closely with Rian". We assume Luke is a force ghost, but one can never be sure with "Star Wars".

"There's a lot of conflict in this movie, but I think where it goes and the resolution is very hopeful", she added.

What do you make of Kennedy's statements?
