STAR WARS: Rian Johnson Confirms His Trilogy Is Still Happening Despite No Announcement From Lucasfilm

STAR WARS: Rian Johnson Confirms His Trilogy Is Still Happening Despite No Announcement From Lucasfilm

Lucasfilm shared a series of Star Wars announcements during Disney's Investor Day last year, but Rian Johnson's planned trilogy wasn't one of them. The filmmaker, however, has shared a noteworthy update!

There have been rumours (seemingly a case of wishful thinking on the part of many) that Rian Johnson's planned Star Wars trilogy has been cancelled by Lucasfilm. The Last Jedi was a hit in 2017, but also an extremely divisive film that led to the studio attempting damage control with the disastrous The Rise of Skywalker two years later. 

During Disney's Investor Day last year, there was no mention of Johnson's trio of films despite the fact that they once looked set to be the next wave of Star Wars stories told by Lucasfilm following the conclusion of the Skywalker Saga. 

Instead, the focus has been on Disney+, with the only confirmed Star Wars films heading our way being Wonder Woman 1984 helmer Patty Jenkins' Rogue Squadron, and an untitled adventure from Taika Waititi, which he's expected to begin working on once he's finished shooting Thor: Love and Thunder for Marvel.

Kevin Feige, meanwhile, is also producing a mystery Star Wars project for Lucasfilm. 

Now, USA Today reporter Sariah Wilson has managed to confirm with Johnson that his trilogy is still in the works...it just has no concrete timeline. At this rate, that could mean we won't see it until the late 2020s, but that would undeniably leave more than enough time for The Last Jedi dust to have settled.
