I read that they really like Rian Johnson and what he did for Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017). Looking forward to the new trilogy and if they keep it in our own time frame (no prequels).
I understand George Lucas also wrote story treatments for Episodes X, XI and XII. So I wonder how far in the future his stories are. Surely they are in his lifetime. Luke Skywalker must be apart of those story treatments too, I would think. I realize George Lucas was angry for Disney not using any of his ideas for The Force Awakens. Perhaps Disney should honor the creator.
The Last Jedi is literally going to have to be the single greatest movie Iíve ever seen(several notches above Empire and Raiders combined) for me to get excited by this news. Disney is officially milking Star Wars all that it is worth and more.
As the films continue and the less involvement the original trilogy crew will have, I will have no interest in Star Wars. Something I would probably be shocked to learn about myself 10 years ago, but I guess we all grow up..
Disney has long since indicated... no, flat out declared they intend to milk the franchise for all it's worth. Heck, they've basically yelled it from the rooftops.
Only thing that's been shrouded in mystery is the execution. But since it's been clear for a while they're going to do something big, there's practically no method that should be considered surprising.
Rian Johnson: "Oh, they love Knights of the Old Republic. I played that game when it first came out and it was like, god, I loved it. Yeah, thatís a fantastic game. And I understand it, the instinct to automatically go to something that you know and love, that youíve already seen. To me, whatís really fun is the notion of what new stuff are we gonna see, what new stories can we tell? For me, the possibility in a new story told over three movies, go anywhere, do anything, skyís the limit, in Star Wars? Thatís so exciting. Iím in the very, very beginning phases of trying to think about it so I donít know yet. Iím still figuring out what itís gonna be."
