That was a bit disappointing but they were never going to top "Chewie, we're home".

Dathomir, Felucia, and Cato Neimoidia would like a word. ;)

What I assume is the Resistance base in the trailer looks old as the hills. It'd be great if it had a bunch of old Clone Wars-era military hardware - battle droid parts, defunct vehicles, old clone armor or whatever. Since Force Awakens didn't have all that much in the way of references to past events, I'm hoping for a slightly more overt throwback in this.

Maybe I'm burnt out on the sheer amount of blockbuster movies being released every year, but I watched the trailer and was surprised that I came away without the usual excitement I experience where Star Wars is concerned.

Watched it a second time and still felt nothing beyond "meh", which is odd to me given I attended midnight launches for both Force Awakens and Rogue One.

I'll watch the film of course, but right now I'm happy to wait for it to be released on blu ray and watch it at home.

Disney is putting Rian Johnson in charge of the fourth Star Wars trilogy, which is "separate from the episodic Skywalker saga"



For director Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi was just the beginning of his journey in a galaxy far, far away.

Lucasfilm is excited to announce that Johnson will create a brand-new Star Wars trilogy, the first of which he is also set to write and direct, with longtime collaborator Ram Bergman onboard to produce.

As writer-director of The Last Jedi, Johnson conceived and realized a powerful film of which Lucasfilm and Disney are immensely proud. In shepherding this new trilogy, which is separate from the episodic Skywalker saga, Johnson will introduce new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored.

“We all loved working with Rian on The Last Jedi,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “He’s a creative force, and watching him craft The Last Jedi from start to finish was one of the great joys of my career. Rian will do amazing things with the blank canvas of this new trilogy.”

“We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on The Last Jedi,” Johnson and Bergman said in a joint statement. “Star Wars is the greatest modern mythology and we feel very lucky to have contributed to it. We can’t wait to continue with this new series of films.”

Johnson’s upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives in U.S. theaters on Dec. 15, 2017.

No release dates have been set for the new films, and no porgs were available for comment.

Is this guy someone we should trust, or fear?

He directed The Last Jedi, so that will be the proof. Disney/LucasFilm wouldn't have given him an entire trilogy if he'd shat the bed though

I'd rather he made is own stuff tbh. I'd rather have more Looper and Brick-likes than have his style watered down by committee.

Darth Sidious' origin story?
Boba Fett's entire life?
The Old Republic?
Captain Rex's role in the Rebel Alliance, post-Yavin? (Haven't watched Rebels yet, don't know if he survived it.)
Ahsoka?

Lots of potential ground to cover.

I hope it's new characters and brand new stories.

Also, a Star Wars live action TV series is coming to a Disney subscription channel.

Disney is planning to launch an in-house streaming service by the end of 2019, and while we knew it was going to come with a catalogue of their film titles (sorry, Netflix), the studio isn’t just content to stream their most famous titles, they’re creating some buzzy new series to go with them.

During the company’s quarterly earnings call, Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced that they’re developing a number of TV series to air on the streaming service, based on some major IP. The big mic drop? A live-action Star Wars series; something that has been in demand and in the works for decades but never quite came together before.

I suppose I'll wait for the TV show to hit the high seas. Like hell do I have the money to subscribe to every new stupid streaming service.

New characters and new stories would be great, if I had any idea what direction they might be able to go in without running into old EU tropes.

Disney must be pretty happy with The Last Jedi to be planning this already.
