Rian Johnson is open to a Star Wars TV series
The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, who has been developing a trilogy set in a galaxy far, far away, is poised to make a Star Wars TV series.
Rian Johnson says he would be willing to do one war of stars TV series. before war of stars: The Last Jedi Released in theaters in 2017, Lucasfilm showed tremendous trust in the writer/director by hiring Johnson to develop a new film war of stars film trilogy. The project was eventually shelved as Johnson shared in its growth knife out film franchise. For a time it looked like the plans were scrapped entirely before Johnson confirmed his war of stars Trilogy talks were still alive. However, there is no specific timeline as to when it might actually happen.
Now with Johnson’s war of stars The trilogy hasn’t made much headway in recent years, so the filmmaker might be ready to make the switch to the small screen. During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, The Last Jedi Director was asked directly if he would be willing to do one war of stars series, and he replied: “I would do anything for Star Wars.” Read Johnson’s full response below:
I would do anything for Star Wars. And if I had an idea that excites me that would work better as a show than as a movie, this is how I would do it. Right now we’re shooting the next Benoit Blanc movie and thinking about Poker Face. I keep meeting up with Kathy [Kennedy] and have conversations. Who knows? Doing The Last Jedi was the best experience of my life so I should be so lucky.
A TV series could finally see Rian Johnson’s Star Wars story come to fruition
Johnson expressed more interest in pursuing new ideas war of stars TV shows instead of overhauling his current one war of stars trilogy into a TV series. However, Lucasfilm is aggressively expanding its list war of stars Projects for the small screen, whatever Johnson has in mind for his story war of stars Trilogy would have a much better chance of being made into a Disney+ series than a theatrical trilogy. The only question would be whether Johnson would be willing to make the move.
Since Solo: A Star Wars Story below average at the box office and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker After the Skywalker saga caused divisive fan reactions, the franchise has shifted its focus to the small screen. For example, Obi Wan Kenobi was planned as a movie but eventually found a home on Disney+ as a limited series. If Johnson’s trilogy switches to a TV show, it would clearly be more in line with Lucasfilm’s current TV fixation.
Having started out as an indie filmmaker before rising to big blockbusters, Johnson recently ventured into television making poker face, a case of the week mystery series for Peacock starring Natasha Lyonne. Though Johnson is a visionary director whose films thrive on the big screen, he has shown a willingness to tell stories on the small screen when it’s more appropriate. Johnson’s war of stars The trilogy probably wouldn’t be a better fit for Disney+, but given Lucasfilm’s current approach, at least its new one war of stars History could actually be realized.
