In case you were wondering if the Star Wars empire could possibly get any larger, the answer is, yes it can! While the latest sequel is set to hit theaters in just a few short weeks, little (and big) fans will be happy to learn that there are even more movies on the way.

To the joy of fans everywhere, LucasFilm has just announced that they will be producing a new standalone trilogy. The new movies will be helmed by The Last Jedi writer and director, Rian Johnson. Unlike the movies that have been made so far, this trilogy will not be connected to the Skywalker story and will feature all new characters and places in the galaxy that have never been explored before.

There’s no info yet on when these new films will be released or who will star in them, but like all good things it will most definitely be worth the wait for your own young Jedi-in-training.
