“If it’s possible for me to squeeze in another film before or while working on that, I will,” he added.

Even before the release of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” in 2017, Lucasfilm announced that Johnson would also be directing a new trilogy of “Star Wars” films, set in a previously unexplored part of the galaxy with all-new characters.
