Forums - Movies Discussion - Rian Johnson to produce new Star Wars Trilogy

So Episodes 10, 11, and 12 are now officially confirmed! I'm excited XD here's a sample of the article:

"Disney has closed a deal with director Rian Johnson to develop a new “Star Wars” trilogy, and it is planning a live-action “Star Wars” TV series to air on its entertainment streaming service that is expected to launch by the end of 2019." 

Source and full article: http://variety.com/2017/biz/news/star-wars-tv-series-disney-streaming-service-1202611408/

Additional details:

-New Trilogy will focus on entirely new cast completely removed from the Skywalker family line

-Claims will explore previously unexplored parts of Star Wars

-No official time line for when they'll come out yet nor when these movies will take place (before Prequels, after Sequels, or perhaps alongside a Trilogy but separate)

Cool. Hoping they're prequels (and thus not called ep 10-12).

Also looking forward to pirating that live action show



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I won't even be around for this trilogy



Makes sense.
2017 -8
18- solo
19-9
20- kenobi
21 part 1 new trilogy
22 solo 2 or other spinoff
23 part 2 new trilogy
24 spinoff- solo2, 3 or kenobi 2
25 part 3 new trilogy

I figured they would introduce a new trilogy, almost certainly a prequel one, I had really hoped it would be Kotor or bane related. Doing this allows them to take a break from the main saga for 7-10 years.



Halo MCC will sell 5+ million copies(including digital)

halo 5 will sell 10 million copies(including digital)

x1 will pass ps4 in USA, and UK.

Nice, glad there are plans for more. I would love an Old Republic movie series personally. Do it!

Rumors say Johnson is interested in doing an Old Republic Trilogy

Think about it though. They will keep Star Wars going to 2089 and 2120 and 2675 and beyond. It's kind of scary, really. Loving a franchise and knowing it doesn't die with you. We'll never see the real end of Star Wars! 



Well they're certainly getting their money's worth out of that purchase. Gonna chime in as well for some Old Republic stories.
