A new rumor in the Star Wars corner of the galaxy shows that the plans have changed and that the future of franchising is again in the change.
While the report is yet to be confirmed, Super Bro Movies shows that Rian Johnson will no longer run the planned Star Wars trilogy that would have been separated from Skywalker Saga.
Rumor has it, Johnson has fled the franchise. Lucasfilm has not confirmed the rumors, which is interesting, given that the company has announced the withdrawals of Phil Lord and Chris Miller from Solo: Star Wars Story, as well as Colin Trevorrow's departure from Star Wars: Episode IXbefore the news hit other objects.
Johnson's trilogy was announced before his release Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which he wrote and directed. It is said that it is completely unrelated to the events of the main saga and would include all new characters in quite different settings.
The last Jedi is a financial success for Lucasfilm and Disney, which makes over $ 1 billion in the box office and dominating sales graphics for home videos. But the reaction of the fans was mixed, causing some people to throw Johnson and the social media movie on Luc Skywooker's image, killing characters like Supreme Leader Snooke and portraying Rose Tico on the canon.
Online trolls have also harassed Rose Kelly Marie Tran's actress in social media, which has led her to erase her accounts in response to the reaction.
Of course, while Lucasfilm does not make the announcement, we can not reasonably say whether this is exactly one way or another. Johnson did not work on his announcement trilogy, as he immediately turned to write and direct his new mysterious thriller. Knives, which is expected in the theaters later this year.
Knives from is a contemporary "whodunnit," with Johnson, who returns to the same genre as his first film Brick. The movie stars Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Lakieth Stanfield, Jamie Lee Curtis, and many other famous actors.
This is not the end of the Star Wars franchise, Star Wars: Episode IX the premiere in the theaters in December. Lucasfilm also announced a series of films to be written and produced by Game of Thrones D.B. Weiss and David Benioff so the franchise will continue after the end of Skywalker Saga.
We hope Disney or Lucasfilm will turn to this hearing sooner rather than later and fans will get some clarity about the future of the Star Wars franchise.[h/t SuperBroMovies]
