'The Last Jedi' Director to Helm Entirely New 'Star Wars' Trilogy

'The Last Jedi' Director to Helm Entirely New 'Star Wars' Trilogy

The announcement shows exactly what Disney has planned for the series after the ninth film in the Skywalker saga (Episodes I through IX). Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, referred to Johnson as a "creative force" and that watching him make "The Last Jedi" was one of her favorite moments of her storied career.

"As writer-director of The Last Jedi, Johnson conceived and realized a powerful film of which Lucasfilm and Disney are immensely proud", a Friday, Nov. 10 news release reads.

Johnson will be joined by producer, and a longtime collaborator of his, in Ram Bergman in crafting the new trilogy of new characters.

Former US general allegedly plotted to kidnap Gulen, send him to Turkey
He also met Turkish representatives in September a year ago , according to Mr Woolsey, a board member for Mr Flynn's consultancy. Mr Flynn reportedly discussed having Mr Gulen transported on a private jet to the Turkish prison island of Imrali.

The Last Jedi, which follows on from 2015's hit film The Force Awakens and is expected to focus on Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), will be in theatres in Singapore on Dec 14. However, we also think that this completely new story should take place in a time many fans are already familiar with: The Old Republic era. The next chapter of the new trilogy, The Last Jedi, arrives this December, and J.J. Abrams is beginning pre-production on the conclusion for 2019. This era had been vaguely touched upon in several comic books and novels until it became a popular setting after the video game, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (often shortened to KOTOR), developed by Bioware.

Since Disney acquired Lucasfilm for $4 billion in 2012, it has rolled out two films, with a third, "The Last Jedi", coming in December.

Johnson knows that with great power comes great responsibility and should fans react to his upcoming Star Wars film with lukewarm to cold responses it could put even more pressure on him to deliver with the new saga.

The first film will be written and directed by Johnson and though he may then turn over the reigns to someone new, he will still be there to shepherd the new trilogy as it progresses.
