So far only two movies have been released under the Star Wars Story label: Rogue One and Solo, each intended as a standalone narrative dealing with characters and events apart from the ongoing Episode storyline developed in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. It was also recently announced that Logan director James Mangold had been tapped to helm a Boba Fett movie, but there's no word on that project's status. The film is the lowest grossing of the recent Lucasfilm features by a significant margin, trailing behind Rogue One by over $700 million, behind The Last Jedi by almost $1 billion, and sitting in a different galaxy from The Force Awakens which grossed $1.7 billion more.
