Once The Force Awakens was released to financial and critical acclaim, the movie managed to rekindle the Star Wars flame, showing people that they could trust in the franchise again.

The studio and the filmmaker have struck a deal to develop a new "Star Wars" trilogy, Disney Chairman Bob Iger announced.

Details about this upcoming trilogy is unknown.

Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy says Johnson "will do unbelievable things with the blank canvas". He will write and direct the first movie in the new trilogy, which Lucasfilm has not announced a timeline for. While there is always the chance that Disney will opt to start a brand new original story, there is actually a character already in their arsenal that would make for the flawless character for a television series... and her name is Doctor Aphra.

The force of "Star Wars" lifted Walt Disney Co shares as the promise of a new film trilogy overshadowed disappointing quarterly results and struggles at the media company's television business.

"The Last Jedi" isn't in theatres yet, but its director, Rian Johnson, is already getting a big vote of confidence from Disney.

Johnson served as writer and director of "The Last Jedi", which is set to hit theaters on December 15.

That's high praise indeed when you consider Kennedy has butted heads with other directors who have contributed to Star Wars in recent years.

The Last Jedi, which follows on from 2015's hit film The Force Awakens and is expected to focus on Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), will be in theatres in Singapore on Dec 14.

Disney is also making three standalone Star Wars films, including last year's Rogue One and next year's Solo: A Star Wars Story, following the origins of the charming roguish smuggler Han Solo, made famous by Harrison Ford in the franchise.
