The director of The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson, has just been given the go ahead for a completely new Star Wars trilogy & could 2017 get any more epic?!
A whole new trilogy will mean all new characters, universes, storylines, and the whole shebang.
Rian is set to write and direct the new trilogy, but we have no news as of yet as to when it will all happen.
The president of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, wrote on the Lucasfilm website, “We all loved working with Rian on The Last Jedi.
“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.”
Rian also spoke about the new trilogy, saying, "We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on The Last Jedi. 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."
We can’t wait for this!
