"When people ask me, 'Don't you think people are going to get sick of 'Star Wars' movies?' to me that question indicates that they're thinking of 'Star Wars' movies as a museum exhibit that is wheeled out once a year so you can say, 'Oh, I loved that thing. Oh, I remember that thing!' And yes, if 'Star Wars' is that, people are going to get sick of it really quickly. But if 'Star Wars' are great new movies that are exciting and fresh, and that challenge you and surprise you and make you feel things and engage you the way that those original movies did — but always taking you to new places, both in the galaxy and emotionally — that's never going to get old. That's what it's all about."
―Rian Johnson[2]

A new Star Wars trilogy will be created by Rian Johnson. Johnson, who wrote and directed Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi, will write and direct the first film of the trilogy, and the film will be produced by longtime collaborator Ram Bergman. The films will be separate from the Skywalker saga and will explore new characters from an unexplored area of Star Wars lore. The new trilogy was announced by Lucasfilm on November 9, 2017, with no release date yet set.


"No it isn't true, I'm still working on the trilogy. With all due respect to the movie bros, who I'm sure are lovely kind bros with good fraternal intentions."
―Rian Johnson on Twitter dispelling rumors of cancellation[3]

After a positive experience making the 2017 Star Wars sequel trilogy film Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson pitched the idea of the trilogy, which would "go someplace new, meet some new folks, tell a new story."[4]

On January 16, 2018, Johnson teased more details about his trilogy, indicating that he hasn't ruled out the possibility of including some familiar characters from the other films.[5] On September 4, Johnson revealed that the trilogy's first film will be released once he finishes filming of his thriller film Knives Out, starring Daniel Craig.[6] On February 13, 2019, Rian Johnson confirmed that his trilogy was still slated to happen, dispelling rumors that his trilogy had been cancelled.[3] According to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, Johnson was collaborating with David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who were working on their own series of Star Wars films.[7] In May 2019, the four met to "lock down" their plans for their films.[8] However, on October 28, 2019, it was reported that Benioff and Weiss were no longer involved with the trilogy.[9] The pair was originally scheduled to write and produce the first film to be released after The Rise of Skywalker.[10]


"The conclusion that we reached was three years was the proper amount of time to not only take a breather and reset, but to really gear up for the next films released."
―Disney CEO Bob Iger[10]

In September 2018, Bob Iger said that there would be a "slowdown" on the release of Star Wars films, because he felt there had been "a little too much, too fast."[11] (He reaffirmed this in April 2019: "We will take a pause, some time, and reset … There will be other Stars Wars movies, but there will be a bit of a hiatus."[12]) On May 7, 2019, Disney released its 2020-2027 theatrical release schedule, which revealed that Star Wars films are scheduled to hit cinemas in 2023, 2025, and 2027.[13][14] The trilogy had been indefinitely postponed while Johnson worked on the Knives Out films for Netflix,[15] however Johnson confirmed that they are still in the works.[16]
