Talking to @BANGShowbiz earlier this month, Rian Johnson left us questioning if his new Star Wars trilogy was going to happen. A couple of weeks on and he has confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that it is definitely still happening.
Following Knives Out, Johnson has at least one project in the pipeline: In November 2017, Lucasfilm revealed that Johnson, who helmed The Last Jedi, will create a new trilogy of Star Wars films. Any update two years on? “No, I got no update,” he coyly says.
Which doesn’t mean the trilogy has fallen to the wayside. Recently, Star Wars fans speculated whether Johnson was casting doubt on his series actually happening after he said during a red carpet interview that he would be “thrilled if it happens.”
“Did I say ‘if’? Oh god,” he says with a laugh while speaking with ET. “I have no update at all. But I’m still working with Lucasfilm on it, and they’re figuring out when they do what and everything.”
