During the promotional rounds for “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” this week, the current “Star Wars” film trilogy’s trio of stars – Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac – have all made it clear that with the trilogy over they are done with the franchise.
Today though, as part of a new profile on Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy in The Los Angeles Times, Kennedy says key decisions about the franchise’s future will be made in coming weeks once the Skywalker saga capper is out in cinemas.
Most interesting is that it states “[Lucasfilm] won’t abandon the characters created in the most recent trilogy,” and Kennedy also says Lucasfilm is also keen to move beyond trilogies into something less restrictive:
“I think it gives us a more open-ended view of storytelling and doesn’t lock us into this three-act structure. We’re not going to have some finite number and fit it into a box. We’re really going to let the story dictate that.”
