There’s a new Star Wars trilogy coming, and it’s nothing to do with the Skywalkers…
Lucasfilm just announced that The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson will be the helm for a brand new Star Wars trilogy, the first of which he will write and direct.
The brand new trilogy will be separate from the Skywalker series of film, yes, all nine of them, and Johnson will introduce brand new characters from the Star Wars galaxy, essentially an entirely new story set in the Star Wars universe.
Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm;
“We all loved working with Rian on The Last Jedi. He’s a creative force, and watching him craft The Last Jedi from start to finish was one of the great joys of my career. Rian will do amazing things with the blank canvas of this new trilogy.”
A brand new galaxy far, far away seems very far away but in the meantime, we have The Last Jedi and Solo incoming in the next couple years.
