Rian Johnson rules out Knights of the Old Republic joining Star Wars

"Yet we can't just revel in that; we have to go elsewhere".

So, very unlikely that the new trilogy will be set way, way back in the "Knights of the Old Republic" days and more likely, stories set within the same time as the original trilogy that fix on characters we've not followed. Solomon's story about Hamill really reminds us that there's a lot of good in the Star Wars franchise. "Let's start fresh", he said.

Creating a new "Star Wars" canon is, probably, the biggest decision Disney and Lucasfilm have ever made after the announcement of the current sequel trilogy.

As "Star Wars" fans gear up for "The Last Jedi", the anticipated next installment in the Skywalker series, its star and writer-director shed some light on how the franchise was mapping a future beyond the beloved characters. Of course, 2016's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story gave us the explanation of how this was possible, but we saw the same thing happen in 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens when Finn, Rey, Han, and Chewbacca worked together to shut down the Starkiller Base with a few well-placed bombs.

When Johnson announced this trilogy last month, he said that it would feature an entirely new cast and plot and that it would be set in a part of the "Star Wars" galaxy that has never been explored yet by any of the previous films. He even revealed that he does not know yet how it will be differently categorized compared to its predecessors.

While promoting his new film I, Tonya during MTV's After Hours, Stan was tasked to record his own faux audition tape to play young Luke.

Just released December 5, Canto Bight takes you to a key location from The Last Jedi with four interconnected stories. "I feel like we need to approach this with the same excitement that we had when we were kids, loving what these movies were". However, he promised that he would be following Luke's line, thus it will definitely be about the Jedi and "their place in the universe".
