The new Star Wars movie The Last Jedi will be directed by Rian Johnson and written by Ramin Djawadi, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The new film will be set between The Force Awakens and The Last Princess and will focus on Kylo Ren and Rey’s journey from being orphaned at an orphanage in the desert to being a leader of the Resistance.
The film is scheduled to release on Dec. 15, 2019.
The news comes as Disney and Lucasfilm have been under pressure from fans to finally reveal a new Star Trek film.
While the first Star Trek movie, Star Trek Into Darkness, was released back in May, Disney had yet to announce a sequel to its iconic series.
Now, the studio has officially confirmed that it will be releasing a new installment in the franchise.
The Star Trek Beyond franchise has also been delayed until 2021, but the news is still good for the sci-fi franchise.
In addition, Disney is now offering a new animated series based on the first three Star Trek movies.
It’s called Star Trek: Discovery, which will be produced by the company behind such hit animated series as Finding Nemo and Monsters University.
