The Last Jedi wont be Rian Johnson’s last trip to the Galaxy Far, Far Away as Lucasfilm have revealed that Johnson has been brought on to write and direct an all new trilogy of Star Wars movies.
This trilogy will be seperate from the main franchise of movies and will move on from the Skywalker Saga to introduce new characters and explore parts of the Star Wars Galaxy we haven’t seen before. The continuation of the Star Wars franchise is not done yet as a live-action TV show has also been announced to be in development.
Kathleen Kennedy the president of Lucasfilm and Rian Johnson along with his collaborator Ram Bergman have made statements on the announcement:
“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. We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on The Last Jedi, 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.”
