Rian Johnson on The Last Jedi & new trilogy, plus more Star Wars news!
The purpose of this roundup is to put all the Star Wars news from the last week in one location. If you read this each week, you should be able to converse fluently with any Star Wars fan on everything from the latest Star Wars developments to the latest toys. And maybe you’ll even share with them something that they might have missed.
Let’s get to it! We kick things off this week with our Rian Johnson interview, in which he talks about Star Wars: The Last Jedi and his upcoming new trilogy. He says The Force will be part of the new films!
The Last Jedi Press Junket
Lucasfilm must really like Star Wars: The Last Jedi. After all, they have given director Rian Johnson the green light to develop a new Star Wars trilogy set in a galaxy not quite as far away. But Rian is likable for a lot of other reasons. He’s funny, humble, passionate about Star Wars, and loving every moment of the process of making Episode VIII (which he is documenting along the way with black and white photos he periodically snaps). When I recently met Rian in Los Angeles at the press junket for The Last Jedi, I asked him about the new trilogy, what we might see in it, what it was like working with composer John Williams, and if George Lucas had seen the film yet.
