Star Wars fans, it's time to get excited: Disney has revealed their plans for a new Star Wars trilogy and TV series.

As reported by The Guardian, the newest trilogy in the saga will feature "completely new characters" from "a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored." The new films are set to be developed by writer and director Rian Johnson.

Not to mention, last week Lucasfilm announced that it has at least ten more years of Star Wars films planned.
