The “Star Wars” galaxy just shrank.
Citing “sources with knowledge of the situation,” the entertainment news site said the franchise will laser in on “Star Wars: Episode IX” and the next trilogy that springs from the original core of movies.
That means reported plans for Obi-Wan and Boba Fett movies are apparently cosmic dust for now, according to Collider.
The “Star Wars” trend of its films making money hand over fist came to a somewhat crashing end with the release of “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”
The spinoff had a disappointing three-day opening weekend total of $84.4 million, and suffered a 65 percent plummet in box office the following weekend, according to Box Office Mojo. The film came in fourth in the latest ticket-sales list, and has made $196 million domestically and $147 million internationally as of June 19.
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” raked in a relatively healthy $155 million on its opening weekend when it premiered in December 2016, and has earned more than $1 billion worldwide.
