The official Star Wars website has updated with announcement that a brand new Star Wars trilogy is in the works. Director Rian Johnson will continue his directorial duties on the next upcoming projects. Rian will return to direct the first of the films with the help of Ram Bergman who will work as the producer.
The new saga of films will be separate from the episodic Skywalker saga and Johnson will introduce various new characters.
Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, had this to say about the upcoming projects.
“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.”
Currently no other details have been confirmed at this time so stay tuned for updates.
