Rian Johnson Set to Create New Star Wars Trilogy

In a new announcement from Disney, Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has been effectively anointed the new "George Lucas" of the Star Wars universe. From
Lucasfilm is excited to announce that Johnson will create a brand-new Star Wars trilogy, the first of which he is also set to write and direct, with longtime collaborator Ram Bergman onboard to produce.

As writer-director of The Last Jedi, Johnson conceived and realized a powerful film of which Lucasfilm and Disney are immensely proud. In shepherding this new trilogy, which is separate from the episodic Skywalker saga, Johnson will introduce new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored.
Since this is about as wide open a door as any creator can get in an already established universe, the result will be anyone's guess. However it is a safe bet to assume that Episode IX which is currently scheduled for December 2019 will most likely conclude the current Star Wars saga's focus on the Skywalker family.
