'Star Wars' books Rian Johnson for new trilogy, new characters

Brand new 'Star Wars' trilogy coming from 'The Last Jedi' director Rian Johnson

Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and director Rian Johnson hang out in the Millennium Falcon on the set of 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'. However, the things Hamill learned about Skywalker would never be revealed in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi".

The Star Wars actor went on to talk about a mind-blowing twist where Luke would get an evil clone from his severed hand.

Rian Johnson, the director of the upcoming film "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", will be creating a new "Star Wars" film trilogy, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced Thursday.

Do you align yourself with the First Order or choose to fight for the Resistance? The company also said that no release dates have been set for the new films, even though it'd be absolutely nuts to release any Star Wars film at any time outside the month of December - absolute madness! Each can be purchased with in-game Credits that week. Whichever faction is victorious in completing the most challenges that week will net a reward as well: a special Crate of high-power upgrades for Finn or Captain Phasma. Arriving on December 13 as well are new locations and vehicles like the planetary map of Crait, The Starfighter Assault map of D'qar, plus a new hero ship - Tallie Lintra's RZ-2 A-wing.

Twitter halts `broken' verification after tool helped trolls
Several celebrities on Twitter were quick to condemn Twitter's decision to give Kessler the badge. The company says the suspension is only temporary, and that it is working on a fix .

The surprising part is that this story will seemingly, finally deviate from the existing Star Wars storyline as we know it.

Throughout December, faction choices will continue to matter, and players will be able to see each faction's progress reflected in-game.

While Rogue One wasn't quite the critical smash hit that The Force Awakens was, there is clearly a hunger among the Star Wars fan community for stories that reach beyond the families and characters that we've been following ever since Star Wars was released in 1977.
