The Walt Disney Co. has announced that Rian Johnson will craft a new trilogy for the "Star Wars" "universe," greatly broadening the director's command over the ever-expanding space saga created by George Lucas. The announcement, made by Disney chief Bob Iger on a call with investment analysts, constituted the most ambitious new foray into the "Star Wars" galaxy, moving well beyond the original nine-film framework imagined by Lucas. That Johnson will preside over a new "Star Wars" trilogy altogether confirms his status as the franchise's new chief guardian.Johnson will write and direct the first film in the trilogy, working with his producing partner Ram Bergman.
