Obviously I hope you like The Last Jedi. But man now I REALLY hope you like The Last Jedi.— Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) November 9, 2017
Why? Because Rian Johnson, Director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, is set to direct the first film in a non-Skywalker Star Wars trilogy.
I’m stoked to know that Star Wars will continue beyond the current run of movies set to end in 2020. But I really hope they take a couple years off. After six movies, a four-season animated TV series, another animated series, and a variety of other shorts, we need a breather.
Yes, Virginia, Star Wars overload is real. I’m not there yet, but I can see it creeping up.
And something tells me these Porgs will be the harbinger.
