Rian Johnson Confirms His Star Wars Trilogy Is Still Happening

Rumored: Margot Robbie won’t be in the new Suicide Squad or Gotham City Sirens

By Kelvin Owens

This may come as bad news for some, but not for me. It’s no mystery that a huge chunk of the Star Wars fanbase hated The Last Jedi, and it seemed believable that Lucasfilm would cancel Rian Johnson’s trilogy after the rumor came out. The good news — at least to Johnson’s fans — is that the Star Wars trilogy is still on, and it hasn’t been cancelled at all.  

Last Wednesday, on Twitter, a fan asked Johnson if he was still working on his Star Wars trilogy. The director answered with a very brief "Yup," along with the emoji of a fist, succinctly confirming that his untitled trilogy is still very much happening. 

It seemed that Lucasfilm was incredibly pleased with what Johnson did with The Last Jedi, and it even prompted them to give him his own trilogy of films to helm. The idea was that he would outline the story and direct the first film, then some other directors would take over for the sequels.

Though the hate for The Last Jedi seems very vocal online, the hard facts are that majority of audience reception was good. Personally I loved the film; it subverted all expectations from the saga, and it presented a clean slate for J.J. Abrams for the upcoming Star Wars Episode IX.

Rian Johnson's untitled Star Wars trilogy does not have a release date yet. Following the conclusion of The Last Jedi, the franchise's main saga will reach a conclusion with Star Wars: Episode IX. Directed and co-written by JJ Abrams, Episode IX stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Keri Russell, Matt Smith, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, and Carrie Fisher, with Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant. It is scheduled to open on December 20, 2019.

Looking forward to more Star Wars from Director Rian Johnson, or were you wishing it was scrapped ? Let us know in the comments.
