It's the same for me and Harry Potter. Original story line=all about that....Fantastic Beasts (meh, ok, but not as invested)

My Reylo reaching a** thinks it *could* be a technicality where Rey and Ben’s kids won’t carry the name Skywalker- they’ll carry the name Solo, or something else. Laughing

Of course the creators wouldn’t tell us that now, as it’d be a huge spoiler. Anyways, I’m not trying to get my hopes up, but I’d be lying if I said this weren’t in the back of my head....

@IoJovi

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH What a Face

I totally assumed it was going to be set before the PT or something. But you may be onto something........ Ninja
@SheLitAFire

I don’t think they put a specific era of when it takes place. The only thing that gives me pause is its said to take place at a different corner of the galaxy but who knows where Rey and Ben may wind up when all is said and done. I just know that last time I tried to check my expectations, we ended up with the Force Bond in canon, hand touching as a stand in for lovers first kiss, a lightsaber fight coded for love making, Rey’s Jedi training outfit being solely for Ben’s benefit, and Shirtless!Kylo for Rey’s benefit, all with UST that’s off the charts.

So yeah in my head this is happening til it’s announced otherwise... Laughing

For me it's a little bit early to say with 100% certainty, if this trilogy will interest me as much as the Skywalker epic saga. I mean, It's more than 40 years of lore. I love Rian's style of work, where story takes over bombastic action as the main element. His style challenges you as a viewer to think a lot more about the movie. TLJ is one of those movies you have to watch multiple times to truly absorb everything. JJ made TFA to be fun, easy-going movie and I love that movie for what it's worth. It gave us Reylo but I do personally prefer Rian's style a bit more - a bit edgy, ambiguity and nuance storytelling. I still have the utmost confidence in JJ and his skills.

I wanna believe it'll be good but knowing at least basic things like - characters, time setting would be good to form some sort of opinion on this trilogy. Not because of Rian's style but general direction of the trilogy, what it'll be about, nostalgia for the Skywalker family and mainly Reylo. I was never so hooked onto SW movies like with Kylo and Rey ... so logically want more of them than others. I'll give it a try, I think I owe as much to a fellow filthy fan Rian "Reylo" Johnson.

I hope we get some adventure set in Wild Space or maybe something surrounding the Chiss Ascendancy (with a link to Thrawn) ...both locations give almost blank slates for RJ to create completely new worlds and characters.

Recently, a film screening at LACMA in Los Angeles was followed by a Q&A session with writer-director Rian Johnson

And I kind of threw out there, like the most interesting thing to me would be to tell a new story told over three movies where we go someplace else. And we go, kind of the potential of like a wide-open blue sky of, let’s go to a different part of the galaxy. Maybe a different time. I don’t know.
Let’s meet some new characters and let’s figure out what Star Wars means separated from some of the iconography that we’ve associated it with. Let’s take it someplace else and see what that would be like. That just seemed like a really interesting question to ask.”

Johnson was even questioned about whether this new trilogy could bring back Jar Jar Binks, which he didn't rule out.

"I would be down with bringing old Jar Jar back — we'll see," he joked.

There isn’t a general thread for rumours of potential directors of future SW films so I’m going to stick this in here - moderators pls move if needed. I very much enjoyed the Handmaids Tale in all its harshness but thoughtfully imagined version. I’m taking this with a large pinch of salt mind.

her acclaimed work on the Hulu drama led to a meeting with Star Wars gatekeeper Kathleen Kennedy about, um, something.
"I guess she was watching with her daughter and then called people and was like, 'Who's this Reed person?' She probably thought I was a guy because of my name," says Morano of her two-and-a-half-hour sit-down with the Lucasfilm president. "She's amazing. We're talking about adventure movies, and I'm not even remembering that she produced Goonies. Any movie that I put my finger on that I loved when I was growing up was a movie that she produced. Anyway, it was a great meeting. Obviously, I can't say anything about what else we were talking about."

Huh, interesting. So Rian would write the new SW films but someone else would potentially direct them? I just always assumed he'd do both, but that's a lot of work so I can see that they may be looking for future directors. ::cough cough:: Ava Duvernay and Patty Jenkins

Oh boy I’d LOVE to see future SW films directed by either of those ladies. The trailer for Wrinkle in Time looks stunning.
