Rian Johnson still hopes to make his ‘Star Wars’ trilogy

What happened to Ryan Johnson‘s Star wars movie? It was announced shortly after his The Last Jedi came out that Johnson wanted to create his own trilogy of Star wars movies aside from the main Skywalker Saga. But then Johnson went off to do other things — notably Knives Outwhich then turned into a whole series of Benoit Blanc mystery films—and Star wars started focusing more and more on TV shows for Disney+ and less on big screen spectacles.

Johnson has not given up hope that the others Star wars movie is coming out though. In a new interview with empire he says they’re still on the table, and he often discusses them with Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy:

I have lived close to Kathleen [Kennedy] and we often meet and talk about it … It’s just at this point a matter of schedule and when it can happen. It would break my heart if I was done if I couldn’t get back into that sandbox at some point.

In the years following its publication, The Last Jedi has been the subject of a (mostly confusing) fan backlash, which could have something to do with the fact that these movies never happened. But Johnson and Lucasfilm are both very busy with other projects. I wonder if Johnson’s trilogy of movies will one day just become an epic TV series for Disney+. That seems to be the way of almost everything Star wars galaxy goes these days; at this point, we still don’t know definitively when the next one will be Star wars the movie is coming out or what its subject will be.

Meanwhile, Johnson’s new film, Glass onion: A Knives Out Mysterypremieres on Netflix on December 23.
