Longtime Marvel boss Kevin Feige says the Star Wars movie he was supposed to make is no more. Entertainment Tonight asked Feige about it during the Las Vegas premiere of The Marvels, and he gave a definitively terse “no.”

It’s been four years since a Feige Star Wars film was confirmed, but apart from the fact that he was writing a script for the movie, no details have ever really emerged. Then, in March, Variety reported both his and Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins’ Star Wars movies had been shelved.

That leaves three — or maybe six — movies in the franchise’s hopper from Disney: one from Taika Waititi (who’s Instagram post about it was a delight); another co-written by Lost’s Damon Lindelof; and one from Shawn Levy, the director of Deadpool 3. Rian Johnson has been on board for his own trilogy for years, but that feels less likely with each passing year, despite his zeal for the project.
