    Star Wars: New Trilogy (Rian Johnson)

    Rian Johnson, Writer- Director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, to create all-new Star Wars Trilogy

    For director Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi was just the beginning of his journey in a galaxy far, far away.

    Lucasfilm is excited to announce that Johnson will create a brand-new Star Wars trilogy, the first of which he is also set to write and direct, with longtime collaborator Ram Bergman onboard to produce.

    As writer-director of The Last Jedi, Johnson conceived and realized a powerful film of which Lucasfilm and Disney are immensely proud. In 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.

    “We all loved working with Rian on The Last Jedi,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “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.”

    “We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on The Last Jedi,” Johnson and Bergman said in a joint statement. “Star Wars is the greatest modern mythology and we feel very lucky to have contributed to it. We can’t wait to continue with this new series of films.”

    Johnson’s upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives in U.S. theaters on Dec. 15, 2017.

    No release dates have been set for the new films, and no porgs were available for comment.

    StarWars.com. All Star Wars, all the time.
    Please be based around the Knights of the Old Republic! I assume that when she says "Johnson will introduce new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored," anything that isn't canon (yet) is fair game.

    Edit: Look's like a new Star Wars live-action TV series also announced for Disney's new streaming service. Waiting for the official article before I make a thread (or if someone else wants to, be my guest)

    You'd think that giving Rian Johnson an entire trilogy would be a good sign of how TLJ is going to be.

    Bring whatever new Star Wars has to come. To be honest I'm quite tired of the Skywalker saga and would love to see new stories spring up.

    The Galaxy is a huge huge place.

    They already announced that they have at least 10 more years of SW content planned.

    The Star Wars live action TV series has been rumored for a fucking decade if not longer at this point, I'll believe it when I see it.

    It has to be Old Republic era, right?

    It has to be. Especially with the hints in the current trilogy of the Jedi/Sith fading away as orders.

    Already explored pre- and post- OT. Need some classic Jedi / Sith, which we've really had very little glimpse of in the movies.

    Spoiler: show
    It won't be.

    Would rather they give him episode 9 instead of letting JJ do it again but whatever.

    Rian Johnson was interviewed previously and said that while he liked the Knights of the Old Republic games and their storytelling, the new trilogy won't be based off of it. I suspect it will take place long after the events of Episode IX with no connections to previous characters.

    Looks like they won't begin on it until after the final season of GoT.
