Rian Johnson's Star Wars Trilogy Won't Be Based On The Old Republic

The trailers and promotional videos for Star Wars: The Last Jedi have teased some dark moments in the new film, and many fans have speculated that Rey or Luke Skywalker could go to the dark side.

Rian Johnson single-handedly just earned a bunch of nerd cred while simultaneously disappointing nerds everywhere with just one interview. "I played that game when it first came out and it was like, god, I loved it. And I understand it, the instinct to automatically go to something that you know and love, that you've already seen", he said.

Special guests at the three-day festival will include The Emerald Garrison, the country's biggest Star Wars costuming club, and the team behind Ireland's dedicated Star Wars podcast, Blabba the Hutt. "So I don't think that's a flaw, I think it's room for growth". "She has so many questions that she's never been able to ask anyone and so I think that's sad, and then I think there is a sort of stubbornness that will make kids in particular not feel so scared".

The Last Jedi isn't going to give audiences any definite answer to Poe's sexuality.

Brrrrr! Bone-chilling gales for Denver, and snow possible Thursday
It will be sunny but the high will only reach 35 in the afternoon, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder. Temperatures in Raleigh from Wednesday evening into Thursday will be highs in the 40s and lows in the 30s.

However we do know what it's not going to be, and that is it won't be about The Old Republic.

What it means to me is that people can see themselves in a hero like this, in a movie like this.

Johnson won't reveal what the trilogy might be about - because he hasn't thought of it as of now. I want it to have all the things tonally that I associate with Star Wars, which is not just the Wagner of it.

The Odeon MK has 2D and 3D screenings at 00:01 for The Last Jedi on Thursday, December 14.
