Star Wars: The Last Jedi might have become one of the most divisive films in the Star Wars franchise, however, the film enjoyed overwhelming critical and commercial success. Lucasfilm believed in the movie, so much so that the studio decided to give director Rian Johnson his very own Star Wars trilogy.
Though there hasn’t been that much word about Star Wars future after the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker this December, Johnson has decided to provide fans a bit of an update on his upcoming trilogy.
Speaking in a recent interview with Uproxx to help promote his film, Knives Out, Johnson was asked about the status of his upcoming Star Wars films.
"I’m where I can’t say anything about it. Still completely in process with it,” Johnson told the publication, "It’s just, I don’t know. 'It’s a process' means it’s a process. So that means it could change, it could shift. There are a bunch of moving parts with it."
From the looks of it, Johnson’s definitely still working on his trilogy – something which may disappoint those against the filmmaker’s style and storytelling. Sure, The Last Jedi might have its fans, but there are others who’ve come up against the film. Some have even gone as far as to petition to have The Last Jedi remade and to have Johnson’s trilogy canceled.
These fans have complained about how The Last Jedi subverted fan expectations and how it allegedly misused legacy characters like Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). They’re afraid that Johnson would do the same when he makes his own trilogy.
