Star Wars: The Last Jedi writer/director Rian Johnson confirms that his planned trilogy is still in development.
In Fall 2017, Lucasfilm announced that Rian Johnson would continue to work in the Star Wars franchise to develop a brand new wholly original trilogy separate from the Skywalker Saga. This announcement was made before Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi was released. Rian Johnson’s film was praised by critics but received a famously polarized reception from fans, leaving many to speculate about whether or not Lucasfilm would be moving forward with his trilogy.
While promoting his new whodunit film Knives Out, Rian Johnson revealed that while he has no new update on the planned Star Wars trilogy, he confirms that he is still in conversations with Lucasfilm and is still developing his trilogy:
“[laughs] Did I say ‘if’? Oh God. I have no update at all. But I’m still working with Lucasfilm on it, and they’re figuring out when they do what and everything.”
Following the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker this December, Lucasfilm is looking to put a pause on Star Wars on the big screen, opting to focus on the new live-action series on Disney+ for the time being. Rian Johnson’s trilogy is not the only new theatrical Star Wars films in development however. Game of Thrones’ David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are developing a new series of films for the franchise while Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is also developing a new Star Wars movie and even has a major actor in mind for a specific role.
It’s only a matter of time before we here more about Rian Johnson’s upcoming Star Wars trilogy, but regardless of the polarized reception to his previous film, he seems more excited about the franchise than ever whether it is for his new trilogy or the fact that he gets to see J.J. Abrams bring the Skywalker Saga to a close:
Oh my god I ❤️ Star Wars https://t.co/RxOxaQiNUm

"Aqualad" will explore the dynamic among Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Donna Troy/Wonder Girl (Conor Leslie), Hank Hall/Hawk (Alan Ritchson), Dawn Granger/Dove (Minka Kelly) and Garth/Aqualad (Drew Van Acker) and how four years prior, their tight-knit family dynamic developed only to have their personal feelings bleed more into their work only to be exacerbated by the arrival of a new villain.
These new images give fans a new look at Drew Van Acker as Aqualad as well as a couple of new looks at the original team united together for action. In particular, we get our best look at how the Aqualad suit translates onscreen in live-action form.

In Season 2, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business. And as this family of old and new Titans – including Conner Kent and Rose Wilson – learn to co-exist, the arrival of Deathstroke brings to light the sins of the old Titans which threaten to tear this new Titans family apart once more.
The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Robin/Nightwing, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Ryan Potter as Beast Boy.
