Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premieres this week – 61% and with it we are approaching the end of the galactic Disney era, at least the first. The trilogy has had a bumpy road since its inception in 2015, with great ups and downs in its two previous films, but it seems that the closure could please all those fans who remained irate at the routes taken by JJ Abrams and Rian Johnson. Regarding this last filmmaker, much has been said about the alleged compendium of films that will remain under his direction, however, the last few months have been confusing and there has been no certainty that the projects were underway. New information from Los Angeles Times seems to clarify the situation.

When Star Wars: The Last Jedi hit theaters in 2017 – 91%, the fandom was divided thanks to the plot decisions made by Rian Johnson. Many were perplexed by the introduction of Luke Skywalker as an adult, as well as by certain details surrounding the characters of Finn, Rose Tico and Poe Dameron. The scandal caused fan hate to fall mercilessly on Johnson, causing fear at the prospect of a trilogy in his name.
With the end of the Skywalker saga on the horizon, Kathleen Kennedy has commented to Los Angeles Times that during the next weeks he will be in charge of making important decisions regarding the future of the saga. Among his plans is not to abandon the characters created for the recent trilogy, but to leave behind the three-film format that has so long committed history. This could mean that the days of Rian They are numbered and that their movie group will no longer be made.
I think it gives us a more open view of storytelling and doesn’t lock us into this three-act structure. We are not going to take a finite number and put it in a box. We’re really going to let history dictate that.

Although the trilogy of Rian it might not be done, there are no signs that the director can’t come back with just one movie. In mid October, Johnson shared some statements for BANG Showbiz (via Comic Book) about the topic. The filmmaker was asked when we will see him working on Star Wars again and this is what he said:
Well we’ll see. I’m still talking with Lucasfilm, they are deciding what they will do and we’ll see what happens. But I’d be excited if it happened, and I’m working on my own projects as well.
Lucasfilm and Disney were undoubtedly rushed in developing the new trilogy. Star Wars: The Force Awakens – 92% turned out to be a low power start, but the situation got really bad with The Last Jedi. Even the actors themselves have begun to reveal their real thoughts on that installment. This is what John Boyega said to HypeBeast some days ago:
I think The Force Awakens was the start of something pretty solid. The Last Jedi, if I’m honest, I’d say I felt a bit dubious. I didn’t necessarily agree with a lot of the decisions and that’s something I discussed with Mark [Hamill], we had a lot of conversations about it. And it was difficult for all of us because we were separated. I think in the original Star Wars movies there was a lot more of the trio where it was essentially about Luke’s journey, but with Han and Leia it had a strong dynamic. I don’t know how quickly we are going to be able to establish that long-term dynamic with the [Episodio] Nine. But if it gets explored that would be great. I feel like even after three movies, we don’t know them [A Rey, Finn y Poe] As much as Han, Luke, Leia. And maybe that’s a great opportunity to get to know them a little more.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens in theaters this December 19.
