Rian Johnson Talks Briefly About His Trilogy, 'Episode IX', and More

By: Dominic Jones

Rian Johnson, the writer/director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the man behind an upcoming trilogy of films set outside the Skywalker saga, appeared at CinemaCon recently to promote his new film Knives Out.  Afterwards, he was interviewed by Josh Horowitz of MTV News about his future in the galaxy far, far away. Johnson gave a brief update on his trilogy, and spoke about his anticipation for Episode IX, as well as the series of films from Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.  Check out the interview below,

No word yet on when Johnson's first film in his trilogy will be released, however with the writer/director now focusing all his attention on the films it seems like things will start kicking into gear (relatively soon).  Luckily, there will lots of Star Wars content (Episode IX, The Mandalorian, The Clone Wars, etc.) between now and then.
