Disney: Expect another all-new Star Wars trilogy

Disney: Expect another all-new Star Wars trilogy”

Star Wars fans gasped with glee this week at the news that Rian Johnson, director of next month's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, will be helming a brand new trilogy of films set in the galaxy far, far away.

"We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on The Last Jedi", Johnson and Bergman added. In addition to the "Star Wars" TV series, Disney is working on TV series adaptations of Pixar's "Monsters Inc.", the Disney Channel's "High School Musical" franchise and an original entry from Marvel. "'Star Wars" is the greatest modern mythology and we feel very lucky to have contributed to it. According to, this new trilogy will be separate from that saga, introducing new characters from a part of the Star Wars galaxy the previous films have never explored.

The project could begin to develop from 2020, although the date for the premiere is not planned yet and will be different from the current saga, focused on the Skywalker family, which next premiere will be on December 15 with the screenplay of the The last Jedi, also directed by Johnson.

His work on "The Last Jedi" received praise from Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.

"Rian will do awesome things with the blank canvas of this new trilogy", she added. Here are five reasons why Disney's new service has us as excited as a kid in line for Space Mountain.

Considering Lucasfilm's controversial turbulence with other directors, this could be a good sign for Johnson's relationship with the company. But when these movies finally arrive on a streaming service, it will be one of Disney's own design.

Disney chairman-CEO Bob Iger announced the "Star Wars" news during the company's quarterly earnings call. That show will air exclusively on Disney's upcoming streaming service.
