New Star Wars trilogy

In addition to the "Star Wars" TV series, Disney is working on TV series adaptations of Pixar's "Monsters Inc.", the Disney Channel's "High School Musical" franchise and an original entry from Marvel.

The Walt Disney company announced that it will produce a new trilogy of the Stars War saga and will be directed by Rian Johnson, highlighted the media today.

Details about this upcoming trilogy is unknown.

Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, referred to Johnson as a "creative force" and that watching him make "The Last Jedi" was one of her favorite moments of her storied career.

Since Disney acquired Lucasfilm for $4 billion in 2012, it has rolled out two films, with a third, "The Last Jedi", coming in December.

After impatiently counting down the days to a new Star Wars movie's release, analyzing every frame of footage in the trailers, and poring over any information they can find, the one thing that's most important to fans is the answer to the question "is the film any good?"

Johnson was brought on to write and direct the second film in Disney's rebooted trilogy of the Skywalker stories, which George Lucas first brought to screen in 1977. It turns out Lucasfilm has even bigger plans for Mr. Johnson, though.

"The Last Jedi", which follows on from 2015's hit film "The Force Awakens" and is expected to focus on Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), will be in theaters on December 15.

The new trilogy does not however have a release date yet.

"We have big ambitions for the Star Wars franchise", Disney chief executive Robert Iger said during a quarterly earnings call. The streaming service (or services) is now expected to launch sometime in 2019, but there is no word yet on when the TV series is expected to debut, let alone plot details.
