Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Final Jedi received’t be in theaters till subsequent month, however Lucasfilm is seemingly so pleased with the film that it has simply introduced that it’s letting Johnson create a model new Star Wars trilogy of his very personal. He’ll write and direct the primary installment, like he did with The Final Jedi, and on the very least he’ll presumably have a hand in plotting out the remainder of the collection as properly. In an announcement, Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy mentioned that Johnson is “a artistic pressure,” and watching him make The Final Jedi was “one of many nice joys” of her profession. Due to that, she’s assured he’ll “do wonderful issues with the clean canvas of this trilogy.”
As for what this new trilogy will probably be about, it looks as if Kennedy wasn’t kidding about it being a clean canvas. A publish on the official Star Wars web site says that will probably be “separate from the episodic Skywalker saga” and that it’ll contain “new characters from a nook of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has by no means explored.” In different phrases, it received’t be filling in gaps between different films, it received’t be increasing on the historical past of the Skywalker household, and it received’t be offering backstories to characters that didn’t really want them within the first place.
The Star Wars web site says that this new trilogy doesn’t have set launch dates but, and in a enjoyable nod to the influence that Johnson has already had on this collection, it provides that “no Porgs have been out there for remark.” Typically the information might be enjoyable.
