A few weeks back it was revealed that two Star Wars movies would release during 2026 thanks to Avatar 3 getting reshuffled to 2025, and one of those movies getting delayed is supposed to be the Daisy Ridley led sequel.
According to Jeff Sneider of The Hot Mic Podcast, who has been reliable recently in regards to Star Wars movie rumors, is reporting that the Daisy movie will still begin filming during April of 2024 even with the film’s delay.
“I said they [Disney] were going to let her [Kathleen Kennedy] make that next Star Wars movie, right? If there’s not a Star Wars movie out by December 2025 then she’ll be let go. In this case there’s not going to be a Star Wars movie, but that’s because they [Disney] pushed it to May  because of Avatar  – Avatar needed a delay.Does that speak to our rumour that he [James Cameron] was going to something with the extra footage [of Avatar], could that come in next year? But with regards to that, they [Disney] couldn’t have Star Wars and Avatar releasing in December 2025, so they delayed Star Wars to May 2026 and it’s still going to start filming in April , it’s not delayed or anything.”
Bad Plot Synopsis
Daisy’s movie, which many fans are now incorrectly calling it the New Jedi Order movie, also got a new plot synopsis last week, but it has already been debunked by i09.
“Set roughly 15 years after Rey’s victory over Palpatine and the end of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The sequel delves into Rey’s courageous endeavour to restore the Jedi order, where she assumes the role of mentor to two promising young students – a girl and a boy. As their training progresses, it becomes evident the girl posses extraordinary abilities, destined to emerge as a future leader.”
The above synopsis just doesn’t read like an official one that a studio would put out, but for those wondering, it is indeed bogus. According to i09 it’s just word soup. The only thing true about it are the time period and Rey’s goal to rebuild the order.
