Rian Johnson to Helm New Star Wars Trilogy!

Rian Johnson

We have been wondering what the future of Star Wars holds after this latest trilogy wraps up, and apparently it involves Rian Johnson and no Skywalkers! StarWars.com has just announced that Rian Johnson will be helming a new Star Wars trilogy focusing on characters not yet explored in the Star Wars universe.

Lucasfilm is excited to announce that Johnson will create a brand-new Star Wars trilogy, the first of which he is also set to write and direct, with longtime collaborator Ram Bergman onboard to produce. 

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

“We all loved working with Rian on The Last Jedi,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “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.”

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

So what could this mean? We might get a hint of something when we actually get to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Obviously Johnson left quite the impression on Kennedy and the gang. Perhaps it will be based on ideas that might have been left on the cutting room floor, or perhaps it could be based on something entirely new that he has dreamed up.

It might be interesting to separate this from the Force, and go in a totally different direction. What are you looking for in a Skywalker-less Star Wars trilogy? Leave your thoughts in the appropriate places!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The Last Jedi DVD & Blu-ray Disc Sales Top the Charts in the US

Published

Could it be that all of the blowback for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, be coming from a very vocal minority? According to the latest DVD and Blu-ray sales, it seems to be true. The second ranked movie on the list, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, sold only 29% of the totals for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Granted this is was the first week of release, but it seems the “Force” is still strong with Star Wars.

The eighth numbered installment of the “Star Wars” saga and the ninth live-action film in the franchise took in $620 million at the domestic box office and $1.33 billion worldwide — making it the top earner released in 2017. The Rian Johnson-directed film easily took the No. 1 spot on both the NPD VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart.
