It has been a very long time since any concrete information has even hinted that Rian Johnson’s Star Wars trilogy, introduced by Lucasfilm in 2017, was shifting ahead. Given the huge backlash his Star Wars: The Final Jedi obtained and the totally different path the franchise has taken with The Mandalorian, it appeared that Johnson’s trilogy has been quietly scrapped. However seems Johnson has not forgotten his plans and neither has Lucasfilm.
There was an excessive amount of taking place that has not been in Johnson’s favour, whether or not it was Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni revolutionizing the franchise, the nonetheless lingering disapproval harboured by Star Wars followers in relation to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, or the truth that Disney’s Investor Day occasion did not even trouble to say the years-old plans for the director to make one other trilogy. The way forward for his Star Wars films took one other main hit after David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, with whom Johnson was collaborating for the trilogy, backed out of the undertaking and no affirmation was supplied as to what it entails for the undertaking.
After which got here The Mandalorian. Within the phrases of Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, the Disney+ sequence “ushered in an entirely new era of Star Wars and there is extra to come back.” As a lot of the upcoming sequence are to be helmed by Filoni and/or Favreau, it grew to become much more not possible to think about the franchise deviating from its present trajectory to accommodate Johnson’s second shot on the galaxy far, distant. There’s additionally the truth that regardless of the director’s repeated claims, any particulars about his Star Wars movies have been non-existent as Johnson has been busy along with his different initiatives.
However evidently, all of the speculation and the predictions have been incorrect because it has been as soon as once more confirmed that Johnson’s Star Wars trilogy continues to be taking place as director Rian Johnson lately shared the information in an interview with creator Sariah Wilson.
“I am simply going to publish this now as a result of I can see that I will get loads of requests – Sure, Rian’s SW trilogy continues to be on. No dates or timelines as a result of he has different initiatives occurring, however it’s taking place. THAT IS ALL I KNOW ABOUT IT.”
However even this one-sided affirmation does little to diffuse the truth that Star Wars is presently aiming to arrange an ever-widening world of its characters and their tales whereas conserving The Mandalorian tone in thoughts. We have already got Patty Jenkins, Taiki Waititi, and Kevin Feige working on different Star Wars films, whereas there are tons of sequence within the pipeline like Ahsoka, The E book of Boba Fett, Rangers of the New Republic, Obi Wan Kenobi, Rogue Squadron, and much more.
Although it is arduous to digest the likelihood that Lucasfilm and Disney are able to accommodate a trilogy that majorly deviates from their present imaginative and prescient, solely time will inform whether or not Johnson’s Star Wars movies are certainly taking place. This information involves us through Sariah Wilson.
