RIAN JOHNSON writing and directing ‘EPISODE VIII’, writing ‘Episode IX’ treatment

Rian Johnson

Of course huge Star Wars news drops while I’m on my way to a wedding. And away from my computer for an entire day. Of course.

Needless to say, you probably know this. Rian Johnson is writing and directing Episode VIII . Oh, and writing the treatment for the treatment for IX. This is killer fucking news, and I’m glad to see Disney following up Abrams with someone who may actually be more exciting.

I’ll quote the source as THE INTERNET. Since it’s everywhere.

Can you feel my fanboner from there?
I’ll be hitting the literal open bar tonight at the wedding. Weeping openly about how excited I am to total strangers.
