Star Wars: The Last Jediisn’t even showing yet, but we’re already blessed with another trilogy. Disney just released the initial details of the new films lined up for the new franchise. Here’s what we know so far.
According to Disney, The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson will be in charge of the films. They will also have all-new characters separate from the first two trilogies. “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,” they said.
The statement didn’t reveal much about the films and whether the trilogy will be a prequel or sequel. But some have their theories for the title and plot. Comic Book NOW speculates that it’ll be a Knights of the Republic trilogy. This was also supported by Screen Rant. It’s based on the ’90s comic book which is set 4,000 years before the events of A New Hope. This also follows the story of various Sith Lords. (I sound like a total geek right now, I know.)
Meanwhile, netizens have funny reactions to the new trilogy. One also wishes that it should be all about Porgs.
