Rian Johnson Still Working On “Star Wars”

Rian Johnson Still Working On Star Wars

With the exit of “Game of Thrones” duo David Benioff and D.B. Weiss from the “Star Wars” franchise and with Lucasfilm’s future regarding “Star Wars” on the big screen still a big question mark, there’s the obvious question as to whether Rian Johnson was still planning to make his trilogy of films announced a few years back.

Johnson himself has put that concern to rest, confirming that he’s still working on a “Star Wars” project. Speaking at a Deadline event (via The Playlist), he says: “We’re still engaged with Lucasfilm and we’ll wait and see. No updates on it at this moment, but yeah (we’re still working on it).”

In the wake of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” Johnson saw himself the target of petitions to not only be removed from the franchise but to have his film struck from canon or even remade.
