Disney announces new 'Star Wars' trilogy

Rian Johnson, the writer and director of the upcoming film "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", will be creating an entirely new "Star Wars" film trilogy, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced in an earnings call on Thursday, according to Variety.

Johnson will write and direct the first installment of the new trilogy, while Ram Bergman will resprise his producer role from The Last Jedi.

What would you want to see from a brand new Star Wars trilogy? Lucasfilm dropped the hint the characters will be "from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored".

Lucasfilm has announced there'll be an all-new Star Wars movie trilogy following the completion of Episodes VIII and IX.

Finally, the last part of the The Last Jedi DLC for Battlefront 2 is new singleplayer story content. Battlefront 2 Resurrection will add new chapters to the core campaign for free, as you play once again as Commander Iden Versio during the First Order's rise to power before Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi.

"He's a creative force, and watching him craft The Last Jedi from start to finish was one of the great joys of my career".

The news comes the same year that Lucasfilm replaced two prominent directors for future projects.

Also note - this means no Mark Hamill in the next Star Wars trilogy. And a new Star Wars show isn't the only thing they're working on.
