cool.

From the starwars.com website:

For director Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi was just the beginning of his journey in a galaxy far, far away.
Lucasfilm is excited to announce that Johnson will create a brand-new Star Wars trilogy, the first of which he is also set to write and direct, with longtime collaborator Ram Bergman onboard to produce.


As writer-director of The Last Jedi, Johnson conceived and realized a powerful film of which Lucasfilm and Disney are immensely proud. In shepherding this new trilogy, which is separate from the episodic Skywalker saga, Johnson will introduce new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored.


“We all loved working with Rian on The Last Jedi,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “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. Rian will do amazing things with the blank canvas of this new trilogy.”


“We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on The Last Jedi,” Johnson and Bergman said in a joint statement. “Star Wars is the greatest modern mythology and we feel very lucky to have contributed to it. We can’t wait to continue with this new series of films.”
Johnson’s upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives in U.S. theaters on Dec. 15, 2017.


No release dates have been set for the new films, and no porgs were available for comment.

They paid four billion for it, so you can bet they are going to make sure it bears fruit for decades to come.

Agreed, Disney paid a lot for the Star Wars Universe, $4 billion. I believe what will make it work is linking it all together. So the quote above concerns me.

What confuses me is why the new trilogy is going to be separate from the other three.

I know Lucas had originally planned four trilogies, but I was under the impression he had planned on all of them being a continuous story.

This makes me very unsure, but not about The Last Jedi, that's going to rock and roll.

If this new triology has no connection to the previous films, then the new films had better be really, really good.  Strong characters and a strong plot.....  

Plot?  What am I saying?!  It's Star Wars!  The Force, the Good Guys v. the Bad Guys, weird aliens..... what else is there?! :laughing guy:

Star Wars currently has a 5-3 record with me. It's a respectable average. I say go for it.

6-2 for me, with each of the last 2 being wins.  Let's roll the dice.

The 3 losses for me were the prequels...though I wouldn't say Episode 3 was total garbage, just "not good" IMHO.
