Rian Johnson, who is slated to write and direct a new film in the Star Wars trilogy, has given an update on the process:
We’re gonna have to see. I’m just in the very beginning of starting to come up with what the new trilogy is going to be. But I can tell you this, what makes me so excited about it, is the idea of doing a new story on the big canvas of three movies in this world. There’s just so much potential and I can’t wait to jump into it.
The coming project will reportedly not include the Skywalkers and will focus instead on another corner of the galaxy.
“As writer-director of The Last Jedi, Johnson conceived and realized a powerful film of which Lucasfilm and Disney are immensely proud. shepherding this new trilogy, which is separate from the episodic Skywalker saga, Johnson will introduce new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored.”
The next film in the series, Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, opens Dec. 15.
