Rian Johnson will create a new Star Wars Trilogy

Post by Javen » November 9th, 2017, 5:35 pm

Wasn't sure where to put this so put it here.

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.

Can read the rest here

Heard this yesterday too. This is scary. Apparently will be with all new characters and in a "different" part of the galaxy.

I also saw this news yesterday! Very excited about this news.
I won’t lie I was saddened to hear Rian wasn’t directing IX because of all the positivity coming from Lucasfilm during and after wrapping the production of TLJ.
Now we don’t know how TLJ will actually be for a little over a month (that’s crazy) but if Lucasfilm trusts him with an entire trilogy then I think we can walk into the theaters this December with little trepidation it will not be great.
Ok now my guess is we’re going to see The Old Republic and Snoke will be in it! If the rumors are true about Snoke then what I said about Snoke being the gateway to the Old Republic is right! Also after this trilogy Lucasfilm could return to do a follow up trilogy after Episode IX with Rey and Kylo...
Oh and when are we gonna hear about the Kenobi stand alone film?! Ewan Macgreggor is ready to go!

Rian Johnson + More Star Wars = Sign me up.

I've been a fan of the dude for years and I'm excited that they're giving him the keys to the kingdom to establish an entirely new part of the universe.

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.
So based on this quote I think it’s safe to say an Old Republic trilogy still fits with in the parameters of the quote.

Doubt it because Disney says it's a part of Star Wars that has NEVER been explored. And Using the word 'lore' so that includes canon and legends. Brand new basically.

This prospect is even more frightening considering TLJ abomination.

He made a mess out of a trilogy that already started off mediocre IMO. Maybe he will do better when he's in full control of the whole trilogy.

Haha. As sick as that would be, I will bet you $10,000 he isn't making the Thrawn Trilogy.

Oh I agree. I suppose we're probably better off that way. A character like Thrawn belongs in our own individual imaginations; I don't trust anyone except Zahn to write a movie about him.

Thrawn has already been changed as he is now in the TV series SW Rebels. Zahn has already wrote one new novel changing Thrawn's past and a second is to be released. The old trilogy is now part of the "Legends" and not canon. The new novels and Thrawn appearance in Rebels are canon.

I won't be surprised if it is either a new take on X-Wing series. The old books were popular but since they are no longer canon LFL can rewrite introducing different characters and set in a different time.

I'd be for that. The aerial battle scenes were always my favorites in the OT.

An X-Wing series would be immense! I’ve always wanted to see that, and as much as I loved Rogue One, I was gutted when I realised that it wasn’t about Wedge.

Is this still a thing? Is RJ still doing a trilogy?

Yes, I haven't heard anything to the contrary. There has been a few articles as late as last month with speculation on what it might contain.

It would probably be in development stage as there is still 3 films to be released. They are "Solo" then "Episode 9" and finally the last of the standalone films originally announced few years back.
