No mention of the Rian Johnson trilogy.  I'm hoping that has been sh!t-canned.

Johnson's take on Star Wars seems to have been incredibly polarizing for many fans.  You either love THE LAST JEDI or you hate it.  There doesn't seem to be a lot of waffling by many fans.

But I also noticed that Iger made no mention of Rian Johnson, too.  Personally, I appreciate that he shook things up a bit.  I had gotten the feeling that Star Wars might have become a bit too formulaic, and maybe so did Rian Johnson.

Check out this article from The Hollywood Reporter and their interview with Disney chief Bob Iger:

Bob Iger Talks Disney's Streaming Service, 'Roseanne,' James Gunn and a Coming 'Star Wars' "Slowdown"


Many believe Disney should pump the breaks and not put out a Star Wars movie each year.

I made the timing decision, and as I look back, I think the mistake that I made I take the blame was a little too much, too fast. You can expect some slowdown, but that doesn't mean we're not gonna make films. J.J. [Abrams] is busy making [Episode] IX. We have creative entities, including [Game of Thrones creators David] Benioff and [D.B.] Weiss, who are developing sagas of their own, which we haven't been specific about. And we are just at the point where we're gonna start making decisions about what comes next after J.J.'s. But I think we're gonna be a little bit more careful about volume and timing. And the buck stops here on that.

Finally, some Disneyland purists are upset that there's going to be booze for sale in Star Wars Land.

We have to be careful we don't let people drink and then go on Autopia. (Laughs.)

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy sat down for an interview on THE STAR WARS SHOW to discuss current projects and the future of the franchise. 

When asked about Star Wars Rebels Kennedy hinted that "people are moving on to new things", which may line up with rumors that series EP Dave Filoni has been working on developing a new animated Star Wars tv series.

Kennedy also revealed that Lucasfilm "is looking at the next 10 years of Star Wars stories" and where the sequel trilogy characters like Rey, Finn, Poe and BB-8 might be beyond the events of Episode IX.  The interview covered a number of different story telling platforms, from VR, to Star Wars in Disney theme parks and video games, and how the Star Wars story group is working to present it all in a cohesive fashion.

Check out this rather extensive article from Star Wars News Net.  It covers some things that may happen in the near term (Episode 8), a project or two that may be revealed at Celebration next week, and what Disney's long term plans may be for the longer term.  Collider's Jedi Council is reporting some similar news as well.
