Damon Lindelof is behind some of the most celebrated television to ever come out from Lost to HBO’s Watchmen, and word has it that he’s teaming up with Lucasfilm for a project far far away.
According to The Ankler, Lindelof is currently working on a Star Wars movie for Lucasfilm. Since it’s a rumor, we don’t have any official details, but Lindelof has said before that he would be interested in working on Star Wars under one specific condition.
He told Fandom:
“… at some point, but certainly not in the immediate future, I feel like I would love to do something in the Star Wars universe… Maybe a decade from now when I would no longer be blamed for ruining it. That would be a hoot.”
Granted, there may never be a time where there are fans who didn’t think that Star Wars was ruined. They were everywhere when the prequels came out, and they’re certainly still present with the release of the Sequel Trilogy and Disney+ shows.
Seeing how Lindelof handled Watchmen, I would definitely love for him to try his hand on Star Wars. While we have a lot of the fanservice shows like The Book of Boba Fett and the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi, I would love to have a movie that really gets into the core themes of Star Wars and is not just full of lore and things for people to recognize—like The Last Jedi.
We don’t know if Lindelof is working on a Star Wars movie officially, but fans are gearing up for the release of Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+ this May 25.
