There is also now no release date for the new trilogy's first entry.

The new trilogy outside the ongoing Skywalker saga is to be overseen by Rian Johnson, the director of the franchise's upcoming film The Last Jedi, Disney said on Thursday.

The note of the Disney Studios also reports that the giant of entertainment is also working on a real action television series about the saga that will be released through the streaming service.

Total revenue from Disney's cable business, the largest unit which includes ESPN and the Disney Channel, fell marginally to $3.95 billion in the fourth quarter, missing the $4.06 billion consensus of analysts polled by Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. The announcement was made today in addition to Johnson writing and directing the first of the new trilogy.

Johnson helmed "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", which is due out December 15.

Ms Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, said in a statement: "Rian will do fantastic things with the blank canvas of this new trilogy".

"We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on 'The Last Jedi, '" Johnson and Bergman said in a joint statement. Lucasfilm and Disney are very proud, calling The Last Jedi a "powerful film". "Rian will do incredible things with the blank canvas of this new trilogy".

We're nearly two movies into the third trilogy of the Star Wars saga but Disney is already gearing up for the next three films - and we don't mean the stand-alone ones.

When Colin Trevorrow was booted off Star Wars: Episode IX, a lot of people were surprised that Last Jedi director Rian Johnson wasn't hired as his replacement. "We can't wait to continue with this new series of films".
