After the incredibly divisive opinions among fans about Johnson’s first Star Wars film, it appeared Lucasfilm was reconsidering putting him in the driver’s seat of his own trilogy. It has been over three years since Episode VIII’s release and the movie still can cause fans to argue across the internet.
USA Today author Sariah Wilson has revealed on Twitter that Rian Johnson’s Star Wars trilogy is still in the works. She shared that there are “no dates or timelines because he has other projects going on, but it is happening.”
I'm just going to post this now because I can see that I'm going to get a lot of requests –
Yes, Rian's SW trilogy is still on. No dates or timelines because he has other projects going on, but it is happening.
THAT IS ALL I KNOW ABOUT IT. 😁😁😁

The incredible thing about The Last Jedi is few people walked out of the theater with little or no opinion, most viewers either loved or hated it.
