The Hollywood Reporter magazine claims to have learned that Disney is planning a new Star Wars film project. A director has even been found and a script is in the works.

Caution! Spoilers follow here!
It is not known what the film's story is about. Rumors arose that he was said to be based on the planet Exegol from Star Wars: Episode 9 – The Rise of Skywalker and tells how the Emperor could survive and create such a large Sith fleet. But this has now been denied.
It is still unknown whether it is a movie or a project for Disney +. Does the film belong to the supposedly planned new film series, which is supposed to play in the "High Republic Era"? Is it something independent? The new film is said to have nothing to do with the film Marvel's Kevin Feige is working on and is not related to Rian Johnson's apparently still planned trilogy.
In addition, it is currently not clear whether Disney is even giving the film the green light. So everything is still flowing.
