After months of speculation, Lucasfilm has finally announced it’s plans for the movie franchise beyond Star Wars Episode IX.
Quoted from the official Star Wars website…
“…Johnson conceived and realised 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.”
While a lot of us expected an announcement regarding a new Star Wars Story film, a new trilogy of non-Skywalker based movies certainly comes as a surprise to be sure, but a welcome one. Given it’s recent directorial issues, Lucasfilm (and all those involved with The Last Jedi) have been sininging the praises of Director Rian Johnson. It’s no surprise then that they’ve chosen him to expand the Star Wars Universe even further. The fact that he’s a genuine Star Wars fan must of helped too.
What do you think the new trilogy should be about? Would you like to see Lucasfilm re-canonise legends material,or take on something totally fresh and exciting?
