Rian Johnson, Writer-Director of The Last Jedi, To Create All-New Star Wars Trilogy
 

Lucasfilm has announced that Rian Johnson, the writer and director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, has been tapped to create an all-new Star Wars trilogy.

Quote:

For director Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi was just the beginning of his journey in a galaxy far, far away.

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.

So old republic,or corporate sector, maybe unknown regions if its not a saga trilogy.

I think I will have a stronger opinion after I see sw8 or have more information. Just mildly interested for now.

Interesting to see what direction Disney has envisioned for Star Wars. I would like to see Old Republic.

Welp..... he's set for life.

Although:

The dumb part is that's only known for Looper which wasn't even that good a movie. Who wants to wager that Disney is paying him peanuts compared to what they pay the big directors.... like maybe Abrams wanted 50 million to direct and this dude will do it for 1 million? HA!

Mostly speculation at this point, but I'm cautiously optimistic about this.

Yeah I loved Looper too. Brick was also fantastic. I have high hopes for what this guy can do with the franchise.

I'll take that wager. A multi billion dollar franchise with each major film generating a billion+ worldwide and they are gonna penny pinch like that? Really??

Also liked Looper and wanted to see where it went.

I've rarely seen anybody with a more punchable face. I also enjoyed Looper.

Looper was bad. This doesn’t bode well for starwars
