Rian Johnson promises more ‘essence’ of ‘Star Wars’ with new trilogy

Rian Johnson‘s next movie is this year’s ensemble mystery Knives Out, but after that, he’ll be returning for his new Star Wars trilogy.

Johnson’s trilogy remains cloaked in secrecy, fans can be certain that it will be set entirely out of the regular Star Wars mythology.

No Skywalkers, no Death Stars — nothing that created the legacy of the franchise.

Johnson spoke in a new interview with Observer about the new films:

“I think that the fun and challenging part of it is to dive in, figure out what’s exciting and then figure out what it’s going to be. We’re doing something that steps beyond the legacy characters. What does that look like? To me, the blue sky element of it is what was most striking about it. I know the way that I’m coming at it and what’s fun about it for everyone in George Lucas’ films is figuring out, ‘what’s the next step?’ It really makes you think and figure out what the essence of Star Wars is for me and what that will look like moving forward.”

While it may remain uncertain for now, it’s clear that Johnson was eager to define the mythos with Last Jedi and will again try to steer the franchise in a new direction.

Johnson’s Knives Out arrives in theaters November 27, 2019.
