Default New Star Wars Trilogy from Rian Johnson



http://www.starwars.com/news/rian-jo...r-wars-trilogy

Quote:
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.

I wonder if this is still happening. It would make sense to still give Rian Johnson another Star Wars film, but an entire trilogy sounds risky.

Johnson has said he’ll direct the first movie and map out the story but likely won’t direct the follow-ups.

How do you figure?

93% RT score, it's doing gangbusters business with the public. A little fan whineing isn't going to remotely shake their faith in the guy. Especially when there's equal fan praise as hate.

I loved the film but keep in mind that we're in the first two weeks. This is when all the fans flock to see the film. We'll only realy know how much it clicked with general audiences once it gets clear how many legs it's box office has had in comparison with Force Awakens.

Even though youtube doesn't define how the entire GA thinks, it can get a close idea of what some are thinking. The fact that even someone who rarely talks about films like PewDiePie is complaining that the film was disappointing does make me slightly worried.

The movie don't fell like a 93 with how much fan complaining there is though. If I hadn't looked at the RT score and then looked after seeing all the fan complaining you would think its RT score was more like a 63 then a 93.

Right but 92 is still darn good and at this point its not going to drop more then like a 91 but fan reception is so much worse.

A large section of a relatively small group, can have a significant effect on ratings which are dependent on a very small section of a VERY large group.

I go to and have seen more movies than a the vast majority of people and have never scored a movie on RT as a viewer.

Bottom line is we know why the audience score is low and therefore we know it is not indicative of the general audience reception.

Its not even RT fan reviews though. Its ever where I am seeing way more hate then I ever saw for TFA not just on this web site but also on social media, bluray.com forums etc. Its like a night and day difference.

I'm really looking forward to hearing details of what these films will focus on.

People who frequent forums like this are a vocal minority.

Maybe but what about people on social media are they really the minority? There are a lot of people that have a facebook page and you are seeing way more hate on there then RO or TFA ever had.

Does it really matter? The GA seemed to like it, and that is where the money is made.
