Star Wars is getting an all-new trilogy from Rian Johnson

"We all loved working with Rian on The Last Jedi", Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said in a statement.

But a new trilogy will go beyond the original nine-film framework imagined by Lucas.

While our first inclination is to assume the next trilogy might be about Rey and/or Finn, Lucasfilm seems fairly clear in their declaration of intent. Lucasfilm dropped the hint the characters will be "from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored". This choice affects which special challenges you take part in that grant specific faction rewards. This is the main feature of Star Wars Battlefront 2 new Event-DLC named "The Last Jedi Season".

Rian Johnson, writer/director of the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi (in theaters December 15), has been tapped to create a new Star Wars movie trilogy. This is different from writing, and it's different from directing - it's also apparently different from producing.

Johnson will team with his longtime collaborator Ram Bergman, who produced Johnson's flicks Looper and Brick.

You can check out the roadmap below to see all the details of the upcoming content for Star Wars: Battlefront II which will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 17th November with the trial now available on EA/Origin Access.

Using the Play First Trial, play Star Wars Battlefront II for up to ten hours prior to the game's worldwide release November 17.

While Rogue One wasn't quite the critical smash hit that The Force Awakens was, there is clearly a hunger among the Star Wars fan community for stories that reach beyond the families and characters that we've been following ever since Star Wars was released in 1977.
