Rian Johnson Reveals His Approach For New Star Wars Trilogy

It's unclear if the plan was always for the series to end after two seasons, but it can't be a coincidence that Star Wars: Resistance Season 2 catches up to Rise of Skywalker, and that Rise of Skywalker is being planned as the conclusion to the entire Skywalker saga and the final Star Wars movie released in theaters until 2022. "The final season of Resistance takes place during The Last Jedi and leading up to the events of The Rise of Skywalker", a Disney rep said.

Star Wars Resistance season 1 picked up roughly six months before the events of Episode VII: The Force Awakens. There was also the shorter-lived Star Wars Rebels, which ran for four seasons on Disney XD. During this chase, Tam is struggling with her conscience and loyalty to either the Resistance or the First Order.

Kylo Ren will be voiced by Star Wars Supervising Sound Editor and voice actor veteran Matthew Wood. The story will pick up after Kaz and the gang have made the Colossus viable for space travel in order to escape from Agent Tierny and Commander Pyre, who have taken Tam Ryvora - a member of Kaz's team - aboard their ship. But now Supreme Leader Kylo Ren is seemingly taking a hands-on approach in their capture. He would be joined by Spartacus and Xena: Warrior Princess actress Lucy Lawless, who will voice Aeosian Queen. Adam Driver will not be reprising his role as Kylo Ren. To me, the blue sky element of it is what was most striking about it. Sources from The Hollywood Reporter say they're still "writing a treatment for a Star Wars trilogy" and are "committed to penning at least one of the films" (presumably the untitled 2022 film). All we know is that it will not be centred around legacy Star Wars characters like the Skywalkers and the Solos.

Nevertheless, Disney CEO Bob Iger has stated the problems with the box office is "Star Wars fatigue", a point easily refuted by the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which routinely churns out three films a year without fatigue. They don't want to see him attempting to murder his nephew. They need to tap into the mystery, the camaraderie, the struggle between good and evil, the sense of exploration and excitement, the danger, and maybe most importantly the adventure.
