Another Trilogy: Disney Continues Its Star Wars Fixation

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.

The announcement was made by Disney CEO Bob Iger on its earnings conference call with analysts. Disney also announced a live-action "Star Wars" series that will debut on its streaming service which is set to launch in 2019.

The official word is that it will be completely "separate from the episodic Skywalker saga" now in its final stages. The only other details available are that the new series "will introduce new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored".

"Star Wars" superfans will get to decamp in a galaxy far, far away for a whole new trilogy. J.J. Abrams, who kick-started the dormant franchise with "The Force Awakens", is set to return for the untitled Episode IX - the third film in the current trilogy.

"We all loved working with Rian on The Last Jedi", said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm in a statement.

Rian Johnson, the director of "The Last Jedi", will sit at the helm of the first film as writer and director.

"We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on The Last Jedi", Johnson and Bergman added. "'Star Wars" is the greatest modern mythology and we feel very lucky to have contributed to it.

"Rian will do unbelievable things with the blank canvas of this new trilogy", she added. Here are five reasons why Disney's new service has us as excited as a kid in line for Space Mountain. But when these movies finally arrive on a streaming service, it will be one of Disney's own design.
