Producer Says Rian Johnson’s Star Wars Trilogy Could Be Out By 2020

We have known about Rian Johnson being given his own Star Wars trilogy to write and direct even before The Last Jedi Was released. Lucasfilm appeared so confident in Rian Johnson they green-lit the project without waiting for his Star Wars film to hit theaters.

Of course, the reaction to Johnson’s The Last Jedi was, divisive, to say the least. I won’t go into any more critique of that movie here, I’ve spoken about it enough. However, it would be fair to say I am less than enthused about Rian Johnson’s upcoming trilogy.

We know very little about this upcoming project as Johnson hadn’t even started to write it during his press tour for The Last Jedi. We then expected it might be a few years before we saw this develop further. However, speaking with MovieWeb, Johnson’s producing partner Ram Bergman had this to say when asked about the trilogy current status.

“I can’t tell you because we don’t know yet. Maybe in two years; it’s just in the early stages.”

Interesting, makes me wonder in Lucasfilm have set an expectant timescale on the writer/director, or Bergman is just pulling two years out of the air? Do we really think there’s a chance for the first movie of this trilogy to hit theaters by December 2020? Its possible, but we also have to look at the market. Star Wars: Episode 9 is out in December 2019. Wouldn’t it be a little soon to release the first part of a new and seemingly unrelated trilogy only a year later? We also have the Obi-Wan and Boba Fett anthology movies in development as well.

Personally, whether it’s ready or not, I just don’t see them putting it out by 2020. My only hope with this trilogy is that Johnson will do a much better job with his own trilogy that he can map out from start to finish. I think Rian Johnson is an excellent director, I’m not as confident of his writing skills.
