  • Star Wars: J.J. Abrams Loves Rian Johnson’s Episode 8 Script

    Now credited by many Star Wars fans as the man who saved the franchise from resentment still lingering from the George Lucas’ "Star Wars" prequels released over a decade ago, writer/director J.J. Abrams is stoked for the direction that "The Force Awakens" sequel is going. Lifelong friend and actor Greg Grunberg revealed that Abrams’ reaction to Rian Johnson’s "Episode VIII" script was ecstatic. Abrams even said he regrets that he wishes he were directing it. "Star Wars: Episode VIII" was written and will be directed by Rian Johnson (known for films like "Looper" and "Brick"). While Abrams is not directing any "Star Wars" films, he will still be producing both "Episode VIII" and "Episode IX" and will be working closely with the writers and directors on both films. "Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens" is now in theaters, followed by "Star Wars: Episode VIII" on May 26th, 2017. "Star Wars: Episode IX" is expected to reach theaters in 2019.

  • Star Wars Episode IX Title Revealed...Sort Of

    The working title of Disney and Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: Episode IX has been revealed to be Black Diamond. The latest installment in the new trilogy set in a galaxy far, far away, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, is proving to be a box office juggernaut, raking in a staggering $450 million global opening. In the U.S. alone, Rian Johnson’s Episode VIII earned $220 million at the domestic box office. Lucasfilm’s attention, though, is moving on to the next chapter in the Star Wars saga. Just two days ago, J.J. Abrams pitched Episode IX‘s story to Lucasfilm. The studio seems to have jumped into hyperspace on the final film in the sequel trilogy, and today we’ve learned the movie’s working title. Fantha Tracks revealed that the working title is Black Diamond. It’s worth noting that this site broke the working titles of The Last Jedi (Space Bear) and Rogue One (Los Alamos). As a result, they can be considered a pretty reliable source. Lucasfilm tends to open separate production companies in the UK to produce their Star Wars films. Foodles Production (UK) Ltd, for example, managed The Force Awakens. Space Bear Industries (UK) Ltd handled The Last Jedi. According to Fantha Tracks, the production company for Episode IX is Carbonado Industries (UK) Ltd. A carbonado is the toughest form of natural diamond, commonly known as a Black Diamond. It seems Lucasfilm originally intended to use Carbonado Industries to produce Solo, in a nod to his being frozen in carbonite. Plans changed though, and delays to the Boba Fett movie meant Stannum 50 Labs (UK) Ltd picked up Solo instead. Working titles vary in terms of their significance. Rogue One‘s working title, for example, was particularly appropriate. The working title was a reference to the town of Los Alamos, birthplace of the atomic bomb. Considering the movie focused on the creation of the Death Star, that’s an amusing nod. On the other hand, The Last Jedi‘s working title — Space Bear — seems pretty irrelevant. It’s too soon to tell whether or not Episode IX‘s working title bears any significance. Nobody quite knows how Black Diamonds are formed, but a common theory is that it’s under high-pressure conditions in the Earth’s mantle. It may be that Rey is the Black Diamond, her heroism formed under the chaos of the First Order’s reign. Meanwhile, the diamonds are known for their luminescence, prompting Fantha Tracks to speculate that we’ll see some “luminescent” beings in the film. After all, there’s no reason Luke couldn’t return as a Force ghost. It’s probably wise to take these theories with a pinch of salt. Lucasfilm intended Solo to be produced by Carbonado Industries, not Episode IX. The working title is clearly derived from the company name, so may have no meaning at all for the film. We’ll likely learn more when production starts next year.

  • Rian Johnson Confirms He's Still Working On Star Wars Trilogy

    In what's become one of the fastest debunkings of a major rumor, there's no problems behind the scenes of the new Star Wars franchise. After word hit that Rian Johnson had walked away from his planned trilogy of Star Wars films, the director himself took to social media to confirm he is indeed still working in the galaxy far, far away.

  • Rian Johnson’s Producing Partner Teases When New Star Wars Trilogy Could Arrive

    Lucasfilm has so much faith in Rian Johnson — who wrote and directed a movie that made $1 billion at the box office and was nominated for four Academy Awards — that they’ve decided to not remake Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Also, as we learned last year, he’s been entrusted with creating a new Skywalker-less trilogy. “We all loved working with Rian on The Last Jedi,” said Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. “He’s a creative force, and watching him craft The Last Jedi from start to finish was one of the great joys of my career. Rian will do amazing things with the blank canvas of this new trilogy.” Johnson hasn’t said much about what the new trilogy will entail (he’s been too busy quieting people negatively comparing him to George Lucas), but his producing partner, Ram Bergman (Brick, Looper), shared when we might see the first film. “Maybe in two years; it’s just in the early stages.” (Via) That would be a shockingly quick turn-around, considering Johnson only started working on the trilogy earlier this year. But if Disney and Lucasfilm intend to keep up the “at least Star Wars movie a year (but probably not more than that) for the rest of our lives” pace, there is an opening in 2020 — Star Wars: Episode IX comes out on December 20, 2019, then the Boba Fett movie? The Obi-Wan movie? Or maybe whatever Johnson is working on? Later in the same interview, Bergman also confirmed that the films will feature “all new characters. Everything is new.” Considering Johnson created porgs, I have complete faith.

  • Johnson Working On A New Star Wars Trilogy

    Rian Johnson is working on his new Star Wars trilogy. Johnson says he's trying to "capture" the Star Wars spirit for the trilogy. The new trilogy will be separate from the Skywalker saga. Johnson told Digital Spy that he's hard at work. I'm looking at everything right now. I'm honestly just in this very nice, 'OK, what is this thing going to be?' phase. Really, the only goal I have is to think about how 'Star Wars' made me feel as a kid. And that's it.
