Earlier, Johnson faced intense comments from Star Wars fans on social media. Even actors from the movie backlashed. At that point, The Last Jedi is believed as the worst Star Wars movie in history. When the trilogy wasn’t even planned, during Lucasfilm’s portion of the 2020 Disney Investor Day event, many believed the project had been discarded.

Something certainly credited to the popularity of Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni’s Disney+ smash, The Mandalorian. This completely changed the concept of the Star Wars franchise. However, Sariah Wilson has shared about the interview with Johnson and confirmed that his Star Wars trilogy project is still on. 

“I’m just going to post this now because I can see that I’m going to get a lot of requests. Yes, Rian’s SW trilogy is still on. No dates or timelines because he has other projects going on, but it is happening. That is all I know about it.”

Recently, Johnson’s trilogy was leaked. It says:

“Johnson’s trilogy is believed to revolve around the Force-sensitive broom boy that was first revealed at the end of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Reportedly, the trilogy is set to take place long after the events of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker where Jedi are found in great numbers and Rey (Daisy Ridley) mentors this broom boy.”

Recent news also says Kevin Feige is also currently working on a Star Wars movie. Writer Michael Waldron also declared that the project is moving and developing. On the other hand, Kennedy’s interview indicates plans are still fluctuating.

In a Vanity Fair interview, Kathleen Kennedy showed us the magazine’s insight into the upcoming Star Wars franchise. Starting with the Obi-Wan Kenobi, which will be released in 10 days. The “galaxy far, far away” going to have a new TV installment. This going to air every month for the next year.

Rian Johnson is nowadays working on the sequel to this blockbuster thriller Knives Out 2. Reports say Knives Out 2 could be ready before the next Star Wars movie. Johnson has admitted he could have time to make another original film before jumping back to the Star Wars franchise. So it sounds like this is just business as usual for him. Hopefully, more things can be learned about his Star Wars return soon.
