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

Mark Hamill and George Lucas

Rian Johnson single-handedly just earned a bunch of nerd cred while simultaneously disappointing nerds everywhere with just one interview. "I was actually having this discussion with my dad, because I was like, you know, people go to the hairdresser to get their hair done, people go to the gym to get their bodies done". "I played that game when it first came out and it was like, god, I loved it".

Johnson wrote and directed Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro. "So I don't think that's a flaw, I think it's room for growth".

"I don't think she has a flaw".

And though Johnson has teased the movie would go to some dark places, he also said he injected a lot of comedy into The Last Jedi, befitting the saga's most charming moments.

Marvel Comics Announces Serial and True Detective-Inspired Wolverine Podcast
This means fans of Marvel and podcasts will be able to enjoy a dark, gritty Wolverine story like last year's " Logan " on-the-go. There will also be a cameo from the host of the Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People podcast, Chris Gethard.

After all, that Old Republic content was swept aside when Star Wars canon was revised in 2014; so far as the official story is concerned, we've never visited that part of the past. Johnson demurs: "I'm in the very, very beginning phases of trying to think about it so I don't know yet", he says.

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

Or maybe Poe makes out with Finn and he just doesn't want to spoil it.

Féile Star Wars will kick off with the first screenings of The Last Jedi at Dingle's Phoenix Cinema, one of the few remaining independent cinemas in Ireland, on December 14.
