Rian Johnson Tackling a New Trilogy

Star Wars Battlefront 2 trial does nothing to quell pay-to-win concerns Brand new 'Star Wars' trilogy coming from 'The Last Jedi' director Rian Johnson

Now, Disney has announced an all-new trilogy that is set to be crafted by Rian Johnson, director and writer of The Last Jedi. Johnson is now set to write and direct the first installment, and Ram Bergman is attached to produce.

As opposed to the latest installments of the epic, the new films will exist in entirely different section of the galaxy, "separate from the episodic Skywalker saga". Experience rich and living Star Wars multiplayer battlegrounds across all three eras: prequel, classic, and new trilogy. We recently speculated that Dave Filoni, the executive producer of the hit animated series Star Wars Rebels, might be making the jump to a live action Star Wars show, and now that we know for sure it's happening, this could be a ideal opportunity for him. We already know we're getting a Han Solo movie, Episode IX, and an extra spin-off which is rumored to potentially be an Obi-Wan movie set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.

Iger also announced that Disney will launch a live-action "Star Wars" TV series on its streaming service, which is expected to debut in 2019.

They said: "We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on The Last Jedi".
