This new set of movies will exist separately from the original series and the prequels, as well as The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson’s recently-announced trilogy.

“David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today,” Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said in statement on the Star Wars website.
