‘Star Wars': Rian Johnson to Create All New Trilogy

The Wrap Thursday, 9 November 2017 ()
‘Star Wars': Rian Johnson to Create All New TrilogyDisney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced today during the company’s earnings call that “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson will create a new trilogy set in the “Star Wars” universe. The new trilogy will be separate from the main Skywalker saga and according to Iger will take place in a different galaxy.

Johnson is set to write and direct the first film in the new trilogy with longtime collaborator Ram Bergman onboard to produce. 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 said in a statement. “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.

Johnson is repped by CAA.
