The new Star Wars trilogy, yes Lawrence Kasdan is going to be involved in writing one of the movies in the new trilogy. Even though Kasdan is connected to the films, we do not yet know which film(s) he will be writing. I am happy that the genius behind by far the best Star Wars film "Empire Strikes Back" an that's a fact not an opinion ha ha. This makes me optimistic about the future of the franchise,
"Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg have closed deals to write
installments of the new Star Wars trilogy, sources tell The Hollywood
Reporter. The pair will write either Episode VIII or Episode IX — their
exact division of responsibilities is yet to be determined — and also
will come aboard to produce the films."
