Star Wars universe to expand with new trilogy of films

Star Wars universe to expand with new trilogy of films

We're met with of Rey looking satisfied with her Jedi training, we see Poe test out a new feature of his X-wing that throws himself and BB-8 for a loop, and we get to hear Finn deliver the most famous Star Wars line outside of "I have a bad feeling about this" - all set to the John Williams score of the original movie.

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy was full of praise for Johnson, saying, "Rian will do wonderful things with the blank canvas of this new trilogy".

As writer-director of The Last Jedi, Johnson conceived and realized a powerful film of which Lucasfilm and Disney are immensely proud.

"We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on 'The Last Jedi, '" Johnson and Bergman said in a joint statement.

The Star Wars universe is being expanded with a brand new trilogy of films, Disney and Lucasfilm have announced. A pair of new trailers were released recently, and now we have another TV spot. 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.

That's high praise indeed when you consider Kennedy has butted heads with other directors who have contributed to Star Wars in recent years.

The new trilogy will likely take place outside of the episodic Star Wars films, given that Disney plans to focus exclusively on spin-off films for some time after Star Wars: Episode IX concludes.

That Johnson will preside over a new "Star Wars" trilogy altogether confirms his status as the franchise's new chief guardian.

The franchise has already begun branching out away from the Skywalker family with their anthology films, subtitled A Star Wars Story.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is scheduled for release in December. That show will air exclusively on Disney's upcoming streaming service.
