The Last Dragon will be “amazingly complex” and will take place over two films, Jotun Returns director J. J. Abrams has revealed in an interview with EW.
In the interview, Abrams also revealed that the trilogy will take us into space, and that he and his team had the “ultimate idea” of creating a film that “can actually hold up to the size of the universe we’re dealing with”.
We’ll learn more about this new idea when The Last Starfighter lands in cinemas on January 23.
Abrams previously spoke about how he and the team are still “a long way from” finishing the film.
“I think it’s a wonderful thing, it’s like the ultimate piece of art in itself,” Abrams said at the 2017 Star Wars Celebration.
“It has to be that perfect blend of the great and the fantastic and the impossible.
I think the best movies, in my opinion, are the impossible ones.
So the impossible one is the impossible Star Wars film.
The hard one is a film like ‘Jedi: The Last Battle’.” It sounds like Abrams is just a fan of the franchise, and is looking forward to “getting to work with the people who have made that.”
The Last Skywalker is due for release on December 14, 2019.
