It was just announced that director Gareth Edwards will be working on a stand-alone “Star Wars” movie set to arrive in theaters on December 16, 2016. Now Star Wars has made a new announcement – Josh Trank will be directing a second stand-alone Star Wars movie!
Here’s a note from Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy:
We’re thrilled to welcome Josh into the family. He is such an incredible talent and has a great imagination and sense of innovation. That makes him perfectly suited to Star Wars, and for this new slate of movies that reach beyond the core characters and storylines of Episodes I through IX.
And Josh added:
The magic of the Star Wars Universe defined my entire childhood. The opportunity to expand on that experience for future generations is the most incredible dream of all time.
Awesome! We can’t wait to find out which Star Wars characters will star in the upcoming stand-alone films! Which characters do YOU want the movies to focus on?
