Rian Johnson expanding 'Star Wars' for new trilogy

Kelly Marie Tran Was a Radiant Sunfish at the'Star Wars Premiere

The 43-year-old filmmaker has helmed the eighth installment of the "Star Wars" franchise, "The Last Jedi", and he has been hired by Lucasfilm and Disney announced Johnson will be working on a new trilogy separate from the current Skywalker saga after the release of "Episode IX".

"I learned so much in that movie and I saw that this was a chance to sort of realize something that we hadn't quite achieved - and part of that was it was simply the beginning of these new characters and their story", Abrams explained. "Yet we can't just revel in that; we have to go elsewhere". The first of his new trilogy is expected in 2021... "Let's start fresh", he said. Apparently the child was a huge Star Wars fan, and he really wanted to meet Luke Skywalker before passing away from an incurable disease. And as Kennedy seemed interested, they ended up "giving it a shot".

Supermassive Black Hole Is Too Big To Exist
Once the universe became reionzed, photons could travel freely throughout space, thus the universe became transparent to light. Quasar J1342+0928 comes from a time known as the dark ages , where a spontaneous eruption was believed to create the Big Bang.

As a Star Wars fan, I have always wondered how the Empire could build something like the Death Star and have it completely destroyed by one little, incredibly placed blast. So, it will be the first movie series that will go beyond the original trilogy's narrative. "For me, the exciting thing about the new trilogy is the notion of how wide open it is and the idea of what can we create", he continued to say.

Johnson's "The Last Jedi" picks up the Skywalker story after 2015's blockbuster "The Force Awakens", in which a new generation of characters was introduced with returning favorites Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). As Johnson was asked about this, he reportedly just answered with a "smirk". "I feel like we need to approach this with the same excitement that we had when we were kids, loving what these movies were".

World's largest Starbucks opens in China and it's 30000 square feet
Dubbed the "first fully immersive coffee wonderland in China ", it's something of a caffeine-fueled Disneyland. Since 2016, it has been on pace to open an average of one new store every day for five years, CNN reported.

Disney purchased Lucasfilm in 2012 for $4 billion, and rebooted the "Star Wars" franchise with the Skywalker trilogy and standalone films like "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story".
