    Yeah, he was announced to be working on his own trilogy (even before TLJ came out, I believe) in the coming years. It was confirmed a few days ago, in an interview, that it is still happening, but there is no time table for it since he is still working on his own projects outside of Star Wars.

    Rian Johnson's trilogy was announced a few weeks prior to TLJ coming out (IIRC) and has been consistently reaffirmed as still going forward over half-a-dozen times since then. Despite toxic YouTube drama, there has never been any indication that Johnson's SW project is in any kind of trouble -- and that while LFL has anounced and then canceled several other projects, and sacked people for various reasons.

    There has been zero indication of any drama at LFL regarding Johnson, apart from hate-mongerer fakes selling clicks on YouTube, that is.

    What we do know, is that neither LFL nor Johnson is in any kind of rush to get this out, and Johnson's SW project will happen when he and they are ready for it. They'll be making SW movies for decades and decades to come (possibly centuries even), and Johnson's thing is lining up for sometime down the line.

    I remember asking Pablo Hidalgo around 2017 how far into the future they had planned out and he said around 10 years. That was before slowing down the movie side and the explosion of Disney+. 10 years is a lot of content and RJ's project had to be a pretty specific piece of it. The future is always uncertain, but there does appear to be a bit of bloodlust in wanting the RJ project cancelled. Rian Johnson has a very good relationship with Lucasfilm so I just don't think they'll ever give people that satisfaction. They'll either eventually make his project or it will fade from memory down the road.

    Which would be ironic considering "Cancel Culture".

    Truthfully, this is the most important factor here. Most people don't truly follow the industry, and don't quite understand how it works or what the precedents are. The truth is, Hollywood doesn't often care about what some people say online. He made a financially successful and critically acclaimed movie, there has been absolutely nothing but praise coming from the cast, crew, and execs that have worked with him, and he has an impressive list of films that he has made prior (and post) TLJ. Odds are, they will work with him again.

    There are countless directors and writers who have been lambasted by the online media and fans of other genres, series, and franchises, and they often are allowed to continue to work with the studio on sequels/other projects because they make money and don't often care what online people say. Half the time, a movie can fail at the box office and the writer/director/whoever will STILL have a long career in Hollywood.

    Do people think LFL/Disney would deny JJ Abrams any project he wanted to work on because his last film, the end of the Skywalker Saga, only made $1billion (over 300 million less than the previous installment, almost a billion less than the first) and is not nearly as critically praised as TFA or TLJ? Disney would likely write him a blank check to do whatever he wanted to do next, honestly.

    This is likely the closest to reality at the moment. He'll either get too tied up in other projects that his SW one just fades away, or they will be making it. I highly doubt, in any way, that they are inclined to stop working with him.

    I hope that when this movie does come out it focuses on a new era so either far on the future or the past

    After the success of Knives Out, Lucasfilm would be stupid to cancel it. Ironically, TLJ was the smoothest production out of all the new films so far. Let's also keep in mind that even before Covid hit, Lucasfilm wanted to focus on tv.
