Prepare for a NEW Star Wars Trilogy is reporting Rian Johnson, Writer/Director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, will be the driving creative force behind a new trilogy taking place in the Star Wars Universe. We've yet to see what someone can do away from the expectations of die hard fans who, at once, want a continuation of the Star Wars mythos, but don't want any drastic, jarring changes. A new story away from the original trilogy characters, still utilizing the legends of Sith and Jedi locked in an eternal battle among the stars is an instant win for me. Just look what they did with Star Wars: Rebels!! Here's the announcement...

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.
