The screenwriter and director of 'The Last Jedi' premiere his next film, 'Daggers in the Back', on November 29.
Disney and Lucasfilm premiere Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on December 20 and, until then, we have new news for you about the trilogy of the saga that Rian Johnson prepares after Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017). The scriptwriter and director premiere the thriller Puñales in the back on November 29 and, in an interview with Observer, has dropped that his next project related to Star Wars - which has not been canceled - will not include any of the characters already known. That we will not see any Skywalker or anything like that, go.
This trilogy signed by Rian Johnson, completely separated from The Skywalker Saga, will be added to the titles brought by the 'Gamer of Thrones' showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss - the first one, if nothing changes, will surely premiere in December 2022 after The Ascent. But then what did the director of Looper and Brick say? "I think the fun and challenging thing is to dive and discover what is exciting and then find out what it will become," he explained.
"[With this new Star Wars trilogy] we are doing something that goes beyond the inherited characters. What does it look like? For me, the creative part of it was the most striking. I know how I am going to do it and what results fun for everyone in the movies of George Lucas is to ask: "What is the next step?" For me, it makes you really think and decipher what the essence of Star Wars is and what it will look like from here on out".
In short, as I stated at the beginning of 2018, its objective is to maintain the spirit of the franchise and at the same time create an unexplored corner of the galaxy. Nothing from Darth Vader. Nothing from Luke Skywalker. Nothing from Han alone or from Rey. A blank canvas. We may have news about the future of Lucasfilm and Star Wars during the D23 Expo held in Anaheim between August 23 and 25 - beyond the Disney + The Mandalorian series and, of course, Episode IX. Until we know more, we leave you on these lines the official English trailer of Daggers in the back.
