Three new Star Wars movies are being created, including the first one to be directed by a woman, Pakistan-born Oscar-winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. Her film will be set 15 years after the end of the last movie and will follow the character Rey, played by British actor Daisy Ridley, as she tries to bring back the Jedi order.
Obaid-Chinoy, who has won two Oscars for documentaries about violence against women, said she was attracted to the “hero’s journey” in the Star Wars universe. She directed the Ms. Marvel television series last year, which featured a Muslim superhero.
Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, said each of the three films will cover different periods in the Star Wars story and have different directors. James Mangold, a two-time Oscar nominee, will direct one of the films, which will explore the origins of the Jedi order. The third film will be directed by Dave Filoni, who has produced several Star Wars television series, including the popular The Mandalorian.
Fans will have to wait until 2025 for the first of the three films to be released.
