Rian Johnston still has a trilogy?

Hopefully not anymore , but last we heard it was still in the works.

I like that they're going away from the regular cast and timeline and give us something new in the universe. Star Wars is neat, but I could never really connect to any of the characters. It's Star Wars so people are gonna be watching it and old fans are most likely gonna hate it, but that's the sacrifice I'm willing to make.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Unlikely. Mostly because its too good to be true.

Going back 400 years to the middle of Yoda's life? Following the Unknown Mission from non-canon EU? Character-driven films? Whole project launching with a video game?

Sure, sounds awesome. But it doesn't seem likely. Hope to be wrong!



starcraft - Playing Games = FUN, Talking about Games = SERIOUS

Cringeworthy is the right way to see it. Until they publicly apologize for their butchering of one of cinema's most iconic franchises, I pray they would just not announce anything.

I don't get it - what's cringeworthy about the rumour?

I don't think its real, but would be happy if it was!

I highly doubt RJ will get his own trilogy.  They announced he was getting one before TLJ even came out.  That was back when they thought they could throw anything up on the screen, call it SW, and it would make them enough money to make a huge profit AND finance the next film.  Well, TLJ, Solo, and ROS proved them wrong.  Plus, Kathleen Kennedy already came out and said no more trilogies shortly before ROS released.  My guess is they were seeing smaller preorders of tickets and knew that this one wasn't even going to match the already disappointing TLJ.



There's nothing in TLJ from a pure filmmaking POV that indicates to me that Rian Johnson couldn't make a very strong original Star Wars movie with his own characters, putting aside people having their own head canon about what a character should or should not do, which wouldn't exist with new characters.

That said, he's had a huge success with Knives Out being a big hit for Lionsgate, he will have studios lining up to finance anything he wants to do, he doesn't need Star Wars or the toxic fandom that comes with it, I'd say thanks but no thanks and go take a nice $5+ million paycheque to make whatever I want somewhere else if I were him.

When you're going to be one of the most in-demand younger directors in Hollywood, who needs that headache and a 43 year old IP that's quite frankly pretty tired. You don't need that shit in your life. 



What's with all the dumb "project xxx" names?

It sounds really bad anyway. Sounds like they just wanna rip off marvel movies. And they may be big budget, popular, money makers but they're generic as fuck! So if that's what they want to turn Star Wars into... well it's a good thing that Disney enjoy money because there certainly aren't going to be any good movies to enjoy.



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

Unless George Lucas is supervising this it's going to be more crap from Disney execs that don't understand Star Wars.



Sales prediction, PS4: 122 Million, Xbox one: 50 million, Switch: 105 million. 

Will wait to see how bad it goes before thinking about watching it.
