Last Jedi Director Rian Johnson to create new Star Wars trilogy

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Director Rian Johnson will create a fourth, new Star Wars trilogy, LucasFilm and Disney have today confirmed.

The new trilogy will be separate from the current trilogy — The Last Jedi is the second of those three planned films. A release date for this fourth trilogy was not set.

“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.” 

What do you think of three more Star Wars films? In addition to these trilogies, Disney is also producing one-shot feature films like Solo: A Star Wars Story and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

After video games? Easy — Star Wars: Battlefront 2 heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 next week.
