The much debated status of Rian Johnson’s Star Wars trilogy has more twists and turns than his film Knifes Out, at least in fan discussion if not in reality!

Johnson recently spoke with ET Online about his latest movie Knives Out and as you’d imagine they snuck in a little question about Johnson’s Star Wars trilogy asking for any update now that we are two years on from the announcement.

“No, I got no update”

He was then asked about his wording recently where he said he would be “thrilled if it happens,” to which he replied,

“Did I say ‘if’? Oh god, I have no update at all. But I’m still working with Lucasfilm on it, and they’re figuring out when they do what and everything.”

So it would appear Rian’s trilogy is in the same state as every other Star Wars movie production, a holding pattern awaiting further decisions, rather than the lest dubious state he gave the impression of earlier this month.
