Disney CEO Bob Iger just announced that a brand new Star Wars trilogy is coming from The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson.

“We all loved working with Rian on The Last Jedi,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “He’s a creative force, and watching him craft The Last Jedi from start to finish was one of the great joys of my career. Rian will do amazing things with the blank canvas of this new trilogy.”

This new trilogy will explore a brand new part of the galaxy, exploring new lands with brand new characters and brand new story lines. Rian Johnson will direct and longtime collaborator Ram Bergman will come onboard to produce.

“We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on The Last Jedi,” Johnson and Bergman said in a joint statement. “Star Wars is the greatest modern mythology and we feel very lucky to have contributed to it. We can’t wait to continue with this new series of films.” 

Johnson’s upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives in U.S. theaters on Dec. 15, 2017.
No release dates have been set for the new films, and no porgs were available for comment.
