New Star Wars Trilogy, What Is It About?
The studio has just announced that Rian Johnson, director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, is writing and directing Star Wars 10, developing it as the first movie in a new Star Wars trilogy set in a galaxy far, far away.
It was also said that the new trilogy will 'introduce new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored.'
This new Star Wars trilogy will be something entirely different, which is something many fans have been aching for ever since Disney purchased Lucasfilm.
So while characters like Rey, Poe Finn and BB-8 aren't off the table, as they haven't been revealed to be Skywalkers (at least not yet), it doesn't sound like they'll be the subject of this new Star Wars trilogy.
If Rian Johnson's new trilogy is even vaguely related to anything Star Wars fans are familiar with, The Old Republic seems like the safest bet.
