When it was announced that The Last Jedi‘s Rian Johnson would direct a new Star Wars trilogy separate from the Skywalker Saga, fans were both overjoyed with excitement and overcome with curiosity. It’s been unclear where the new trilogy will place in the Star Wars timeline, but Johnson just narrowed down the possibilities.
One of the most popular theories is that the trilogy will take a page from the Knights of the Old Republic video game. Speaking with Mashable, however, Johnson shot this theory down.
“I played that game when it first came out and it was like, God, I loved it,” Johnson stated.
“Yeah, that’s a fantastic game. And I understand it, the instinct to automatically go to something that you know and love, that you’ve already seen.”
Johnson went on to say that he wants his Star Wars movies to tackle fresher material.
“To me, what’s really fun is the notion of what new stuff are we gonna see, what new stories can we tell?”
“For me, the possibility in a new story told over three movies, go anywhere, do anything, sky’s the limit, in Star Wars? That’s so exciting.”
What do you think the new Star Wars trilogy will be about?
