Rian Johnson, the most controversial Star Wars director, has officially announced his long-awaited sequel for Knives Out (2019).
Rian Johnson is infamous for Star Wars: Episode XIII – The Last Jedi (2018), the most hated and “toxic” Lucasfilm movie in history.
Garnering unprecedented online hate and even threats, Johnson was blacklisted by the Star Wars community and much of the general public. Lucasfilm reportedly scrapped his Star Wars trilogy following The Last Jedi, and his Hollywood future looked bleak until Knives Out (2019).
From out of left field comes Knives Out, Johnson’s jaw-dropping murder mystery film starring Chris Evans, Ana De Armas, Daniel Craig, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, and Christoper Plummer.
Lionsgate took a gamble on Rian Johnson’s penned drama and struck gold, grossing over $300 million.
Netflix soon took up Rian Johnson full-time for an announced Knives Out 2 and 3, but there was little news surrounding the new movies. Other than Daniel Craig earning a record-breaking $50 million for each Knives Out sequel, fans were left wondering what was next for Benoit Blanc.
Now, Knives Out 2 has transformed into Glass Onion:

“Glass Onion” was reportedly coined by The Beatles co-founder John Lennon upon describing the signing of Badfinger to Apple Records in 1968, citing “transparency” and “multiple layers.”
Fans are aside themselves with this announcement, wishing that the movie was coming out sooner:
