There’s a new rumor that will make thousands of people online cry out in terror only to be suddenly silenced, which that says Rian Johnson’s trilogy is still coming; despite many people trying to claim otherwise.
The rumor comes from LRM Online, which was originally known as Latino Review, and they have been known to break some pretty big scoops in the past. They recently said that Taika’s Star Wars movie wouldn’t arrive before 2024, and now they have an update on Rian’s trilogy:
“From my source at Lucasfilm, the Rian Johnson Star Wars films are still on track and will be released after the Taika Waititi Star Wars film.”
Lucasfilm currently has three release dates staked out for Star Wars movies:
December 16, 2022
December 20, 2024
December 18, 2026
If the Taika movie isn’t until 2024, then it could mean the first Rian Johnson movie will arrive on the 2026 date (if Lucasfilm doesn’t add any additional release dates before then). Of course this brings up the question as to what the 2022 movie will be, but it does seem like it’s still happening as Lucasfilm just rescheduled the 2022 Star Wars Celebration to four months before that release date and they traditionally like to use Celebration to promote a movie coming that year.
