RIAN JOHNSON CONFIRMS STATUS OF HIS ‘STAR WARS’ SPIN-OFF TRILOGY





The future of the Star Wars franchise was thrown into doubt a while back. The Last Jedi was a huge commercial success, and Disney announced shortly afterwards that director Rian Johnson would be directing an entire trilogy of spin-off movies. However, there were many who didn’t like it [me included], and when Solo: A Star Wars Story opened to disappointing box office, some blamed the mixed response to The Last Jedi for this. Disney then said that it was putting the series on “a bit of a hiatus” earlier this year.

But now, while the future of other spin-off movies seems to still be in doubt, it seems that Johnson’s trilogy is still intended to go ahead. As part of a profile on Johnson and professional partner Ram Bergman’s film company T-Street, ‘Deadline’ reports that Johnson, while not being very specific, still means for these films to happen.

“I’m excited to open things up and get the chance to work with talented people and learn from them. In a way, this is very much in the mode of how we’ve always worked, though Star Wars was different for obvious reasons. But we’ve always thought like indie filmmakers, maintaining a degree of ownership and authorship over what we’ve done. This was a way to set up a space where we can make that happen for other filmmakers.”

My view? There are only three true Star Wars films, and this will never change!!

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
