Disney chief Bob Iger announced the plans Thursday in a call with investment analysts.

The new trilogy, to be developed by "Last Jedi" director Rian Johnson, would come after 2020. In a joint statement, the director and producer say, "We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on The Last Jedi".

Lucasfilm's president Kathleen Kennedy said in helming The Last Jedi, the director has proven that his vision is exactly what Disney wants moving forward.

Johnson knows that with great power comes great responsibility and should fans react to his upcoming Star Wars film with lukewarm to cold responses it could put even more pressure on him to deliver with the new saga.

Fans still have to wait a month to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but Lucasfilm's latest actions more or less confirm the eighth episode in the Skywalker saga is something special.

As viewers speculate what the Johnson Trilogy (as we're unofficially calling it) will be about, the timing of Lucasfilm's release is no coincidence.

"The Last Jedi" will be in cinemas from December 15, and as per the website - no Porgs are available for comment on this fantastic news!

Johnson, who wrote and directed The Last Jedi has so far become the studio's darling, what with him managing to make the only Star Wars film since The Force Awakens, in which a director was not fired.

Of the nascent entertainment-focused streaming service, Iger said Disney would produce four to five original movies a year for the service, in addition to the original TV series. The streaming service (or services) is now expected to launch sometime in 2019, but there is no word yet on when the TV series is expected to debut, let alone plot details.
