Rian Johnson to create new 'Star Wars' trilogy

"Last Jedi" director Rian Johnson has signed on for a brand new trilogy, Lucasfilm announced Thursday.

This is huge news for Star Wars fans, and should generate additional interest in "The Last Jedi" since the film clearly pleased Lucasfilm enough to give them the confidence to entrust the biggest Star Wars cinematic universe since this three-episode Skywalker saga wrap to Johnson.

Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens December 15, 2017.

Call of Duty: WWII soars past $500 million opening weekend
This is an incredible feat nonetheless, and kudos to Sledgehammer Games for making bank. "At the end of the day it just didn't feel enough like Call Of Duty ".

No release dates have been set for any of the new films. For now, read MMORPG.com's preview of the new DLC content HERE.

That should quell at least SOME of the rumors of any connection to any Star Wars story yet out in the wild.

It all starts on December 5 when players will be asked to "choose a side", by fighting alongside the First Order or the Resistance. Captain Phasma and Finn will be joining the fight, and whichever faction completes the most challenges that week will receive a special reward for either Finn or Phasma. You will be able to purchase both heroes with credits earned in-game starting on December 13th. Poe Dameron's T-70 X-wing is also upgraded with a new ability inspired by Star Wars™: The Last Jedi .

Get Watch_Dogs on PC for Free Starting Tomorrow
Ubisoft's free Watch Dogs promotion will run from November 7, 2017, to November 13, 2017, and only applies to the PC version of the game.

Iden Versio arrives on December 13 as well in Star Wars Battlefront 2 Resurrection, which finds players joining the commander during "the days of the First Order's rise to power".

The surprising part is that this story will seemingly, finally deviate from the existing Star Wars storyline as we know it. However, soon after word came down that Marvel and Star Wars movies are definitely being moved over to the Disney service - and now we have confirmation that Marvel's Netflix series will be doing the same.

Millions of Netflix subscribers have been targeted by a new scam
The scam has already targeted around 110 million Netflix users warning users that their billing information is not updated. It was not immediately clear how many of Netflix's more than 109 million worldwide subscribers have received the email .
