Star Wars : Rian Johnson Developing New Trilogy, And Disney Working On Live-action TV Show.

Lucasfilm announced on Thursday that Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, is developing a brand-new Star Wars trilogy. The new films will introduce fans to new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored.

Johnson will write and direct the first film in the series, with longtime collaborator Ram Bergman onboard to produce. The trilogy will allegedly be separate from the Skywalker Saga.







“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.”

Disney is also allegedly creating new "Star Wars" live action series for its streaming service launching in 2019.

Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives in theaters on December 15, 2017.
