Lucasfilm has recently dropped other projects to increase its focus on the world of Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Willow.
Lucas’s film has not created a new series in years, and it was after Disney bought 20th Century Fox that the studio took on the task of making a film based on the Children of Blood and Bone novels. Now in the latest Movie and TV news, Locasfilm’s plans have apparently changed. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Lucasfilm has decided to give up making a film based on the fantasy novel Children of Blood and Bone, and that Paramount has now acquired the rights to the film based on the fantasy novel.
The report says that Kathleen Kennedy, the studio’s director, was initially interested in making Children of Blood and Bone after Disney bought Fox, and even The Mandalorian director Rick Famovia was set to direct the film. However, the directors of Locasfilm decided to stop making the project and instead focus on expanding the world of Star Wars, such as making the new season of Mendeleev, Boba Fate, and so on.
Tommy Adimi, author of the novel Children of Blood and Bones, wanted to participate in the script of the film, and now Paramount has bought the right to produce the film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Locasfilm has completely distanced itself from its new projects to focus on other projects from its current world. In addition to the world of Star Wars, Locasfilm will continue to commit to other projects such as Indiana Jones 5 and Willow. Locasfilm is currently working on several films and series that will be released in the coming years.
Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, directed by Patti Jenkins, the new Star Wars movie directed by Taika Whitey, another Star Wars movie directed by Kevin Faigy, the new Star Wars trilogy directed by Ryan Johnson are among the Star Wars movie projects. Indiana Jones 5 is also set to release in 2023, and the Willow series is being made for Disney Plus.
