“I was in over talks to join the Star Wars universe,” he said. “I joined the Star Wars universe. I was asked for the Star Wars universe.”
Lindelof was working on a movie with Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, who directed two episodes of Mrs. Marvel and directs one of three new films. Obaid-Chinoy’s film follows Rey Skywalker, again played by Daisy Ridley, as she works to build a new Jedi Order.
Even though he is not currently part of any Star Wars movie, Lindelof appears to be open to working on the franchise later on. “Shall I get back in line outside the club and try to get in again? Of course,’ he added. “[Star Wars] was the alpha and the omega. It is the first film I saw in a cinema. I love all the stories in that world. If you don’t succeed at first, try again. Or again, again, try, as Yoda would say.”
