Director Rian Johnson is genuinely making an all-new story for his upcoming Star Wars trilogy.

Though J.J. Abrams is poised to close out the new Star Wars trilogy with Episode IX, the galaxy far, far away finds itself in Johnson's hands moving forward. It was lately announced that the director from the upcoming The Final Jedi is developing a new film Star Wars trilogy totally separate from the Skywalker family's multigenerational saga. But those hoping Johnson might draw inspiration from just about the most well-liked Extended Universe eras will have to stick with the cheap SWTOR Credits Old Republic's video game origins, because the director is definitively not tackling it.

"Oh, they appreciate Knights with the Old Republic," Johnson told Mashable for the duration of a current Final Jedi press junket. "I played that game when it 1st came out and it was like, God, I loved it. Yeah, that's a wonderful game. And I comprehend it, the instinct to automatically go to one thing that you just know and appreciate, that you've currently noticed."

It's an instinct that Johnson refuses to indulge, however, saying that his trilogy will be anything totally new towards the Star Wars canon.

"To me, what's genuinely fun will be the notion of what new stuff are we gonna see, what new stories can we inform?"

Although the Old Republic plus the KOTOR video games are full of possible film material, it really is understandable, and also encouraging that Johnson is committed to crafting something wholly original and not beholden to buy SWTOR Credits something in the past. Apart from, there's also that annoying small technicality that all Extended Universe material was declared apocryphal when Disney purchased the rights for the Star Wars franchise.

Though his new trilogy is in the extremely early stages of improvement, Johnson's The Last Jedi, is rapidly approaching, hitting theaters on December 15.
