What We Know About The Star Wars Origin Movie


  • Lucasfilm confirms upcoming Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi movie, exploring ancient history of the galaxy. Poor reception to The Rise of Skywalker resulted in a focus on Disney+ shows, but now four Star Wars movies are in the works.
  • Set during the “Dawn of the Jedi” era, James Mangold’s movie promises to resolve many of the Force’s greatest mysteries. It will tell the story of the first Force-users and potentially hint at the formation of the Jedi.
  • James Mangold, known for directing Logan, will helm the film. No information on the cast or specific characters yet. The movie may feature the Prime Jedi and could potentially revisit Ahch-To and the Jedi Temple seen in The Last Jedi.



Lucasfilm has officially confirmed an upcoming Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi movie, which will reveal the ancient history of the Star Wars galaxy. Poor reception to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker led Lucasfilm to back away from the box office for a while, instead focusing on Disney+ TV shows. All that is changing now, though, with four upcoming Star Wars movies on the way.

These are set across the Star Wars timeline, and one of the most exciting is James Mangold’s – set during the “Dawn of the Jedi” era, and potentially sharing that as a title. Mangold has described this as the Ten Commandments of the Force, meaning many of the Force’s greatest mysteries will be resolved. Here’s everything that’s known about “Dawn of the Jedi” at this early stage of development.


How To Watch Star Wars Movies In Order

Here is how to watch all Star Wars movies and TV shows chronologically and in order of release, and how each fits into the Star Wars timeline.

When Dawn Of The Jedi Takes Place In The Star Wars Timeline

The Jedi Order former 25,000 years before the events of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, and “Dawn of the Jedii” will go back even further. In fact, according to James Mangold, this will tell the story of the first Force-users – and might not even include the word “Jedi,” instead ending with hints of how the Jedi would form from this. While some Star Wars novels have headed back in time to the High Republic Era, 200 years before the prequels, no canon explores this age of the galaxy and the Jedi.

Who Is Involved In Dawn Of The Jedi

Logan director James Mangold is set to direct the Star WarsDawn of the Jedi movie. Mangold has also directed the forthcoming Lucasfilm movie Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, and his interactions with Lucasfilm were clearly positive – explaining why the studio approved this pitch. Because Dawn of the Jedi is in the early stages of pre-production, there has been no announcement regarding the cast, nor which characters the story will center around. Only one familiar face was around 25,000 years ago – Ahsoka’s droid Huyang, voiced by David Tennant.

What Dawn Of The Jedi’s Star Wars Story Could Be

The Sacred Jedi Texts - Star Wars The Last Jedi

Dawn of the Jedi could feature the first Jedi, or Prime Jedi. An image of the Prime Jedi was seen in Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Ahch-To as artwork in a cave Luke Skywalker visits on the planet Ahch-To, believed site of the first Jedi Temple. It might also include the now non-canon Legends characters who created the Jedi Order – Masters Cala Brin, Garon Jard, Rajivari, and Ters Sendon.

Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi was a Legends comic book series written by John Ostrander and focusing on Force-sensitive individuals who reside on the planet Tython, introduced to canon in The Mandalorian season 2. It is currently unknown whether this Legends storyline will be adapted, or if Ostrander is connected to the Dawn of the Jedi movie. Either way, Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi could return to Ahch-To, which was first seen in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The story may even feature some of the same shooting locations, as well as bringing back the uneti tree that housed Luke Skywalker’s sacred Jedi texts. Only time will tell.
