There was shockwaves sent out throughout the world when Lucasfilm revealed that Rian Johnson (who is the director for the upcoming Star Wars film The Last Jedi) would be helping an entirely new trilogy in the universe. Most importantly, it would be one that would step away from the Skywalker saga and the events of the current films. But, what are they going to be about?
Well, that is the question, isn’t it? And during a press run, Johnson had this to say about it:
“We’re gonna have to see. I’m just in the very beginning of starting to come up with what the new trilogy is going to be. But I can tell you this, what makes me so excited about it, is the idea of doing a new story on the big canvas of three movies in this world. There’s just so much potential and I can’t wait to jump into it.”
It’s very fair that he doesn’t want to say much, or even more accurately, that there isn’t much to say at present. Why rush it when you have an entire universe to go off of? It’s going to be interesting though to see just where Johnson takes us in a galaxy far, far away.
