It was announced all the way back in 2017 that Rian Johnson would be directing his own trilogy of Star Wars movies after The Last Jedi. Fast forward to today, and we still don't know exactly when the first of three movies will be released, nor the plot details. This week, Johnson did an interview with UPROXX, and while he kept things vague, he did discuss the series.

When asked about the trilogy, Johnson stated, "I’m where I can’t say anything about it. Still completely in process with it," adding, "It’s just, I don’t know. 'It’s a process' means it’s a process. So that means it could change, it could shift. There are a bunch of moving parts with it."

Johnson was then asked how he would respond if he were asked the same question about his latest film, Knives Out, a few years back. "I probably would have given you some answer and then it would’ve been totally different from the movie that came out." he replied. "You know, it’s something that you write and you work on."

The next release from Star Wars will be The Rise of Skywalker, which is set to debut Dec. 20. Besides Johnson's trilogy, Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are also slated for a trilogy of their own, though many fans of a galaxy far, far away are extremely against the move, even creating a petition to keep them from the franchise.
