Guillermo Del Toro, the acclaimed and celebrated filmmaker, recently released a statement on the news of the cancellation of his upcoming Star Wars project- Jabba The Hutt. Despite the announcement, Del Toro still expresses his enthusiasm and appreciation for the experience he had during the creation process.

Del Toro stated, "I was very excited at the opportunity to work with LucasFilm on a feature film. I understand, and deeply respect the decision LucasFilm have made and I wish the team all the best moving forward."
