What Lies Ahead for the Mysterious new Star Wars Trilogy?
With The Last Jedi drawing closer and closer, it’s time to take a step back and ponder on what comes after. The director the aforementioned Episode VIII, Rian Johnson, was recently announced to be leading the helm for a brand new Star Wars trilogy, that is currently shrouded in mystery.
Speculation is running wild as to what this new story will entail. Will we go to the future, the past, or somewhere in-between? We only received small hints as to what the movies will revolve around from Star Wars’ official press release, which reads:
“… 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 many fans are pining for this to be the much anticipated introduction to The Old Republic story arch, we must keep an open mind as to their direction as more and more details are released. There is of course the possibility that they could take us further into the future, much like the books during New Jedi Order did. Or, by them saying “new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars Lore has never before explored” these new movies would be set in a separate location in the galaxy far far away then what we are used to.
As we draw closer to the release of The Last Jedi, we will keep a watchful eye on how Rian Johnson handles the franchise, and trust in the force that this new trilogy will be in good hands.
What would you like to see out if this new venture for the Star Wars franchise? As always, MTFBWY.
