Disney hopes for its next blockbuster in newest 'Star Wars'

Real Farm Review22

"Rian will do incredible things with the blank canvas of this new trilogy", Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, said in a statement.

After Disney boss Bob Iger made some comments in a conference call earlier today, a statement was quickly released confirming that Rian Johnson will craft the next stage of the Star Wars story. On December 13, the cinematic content from Star Wars™: The Last Jedi continues with a new planetary map: Crait. However, soon after word came down that Marvel and Star Wars movies are definitely being moved over to the Disney service - and now we have confirmation that Marvel's Netflix series will be doing the same. As for the new trilogy, it will be separate from the Skywalker saga, which will span nine films by the time J.J.

While we don't know anything official about the Star Wars show quite yet, there's plenty of information out there about Lucasfilm's previous plans to bring live action Star Wars stories to the small screen.

Johnson will write and direct the first installment of the new trilogy, while Ram Bergman will resprise his producer role from The Last Jedi. Johnson will explore an all-new part of the galaxy and introduce brand new characters, meaning we probably won't be gliding off of nostalgia and references like we have with some of these other movies. Experience rich and living Star Wars multiplayer battlegrounds across all three eras: prequel, classic, and new trilogy.




"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 Last Jedi arrives in the United Kingdom on 14 December, ahead of the 15 December launch Stateside.

No release dates have been set for the new films.
