Well, judging from The Last Jedi, we can surmise as to what it may turn out to be. But Rian Johnson gives further indication, of his approach to the project:
Luke Y. Thompson of The Nerdist reports:
One of the most common questions waged about Star Wars: The Last Jedi involves the opening space battle: How exactly does the process of dropping bombs work in zero gravity, out of orbit? Sure, there were TIE bombers in The Empire Strikes Back as well, but the fact that such a thing exists in Star Wars canon doesn’t answer the question of how. According to visual effects supervisor Ben Morris, however, this was something his team thought carefully about for a long time.
“We did all go, ‘How do bombs drop in space?’” Morris told Nerdist. “And we sat there for ages. And then Rian [Johnson] said, ‘They’re Maglev [magnetic] bombs. It’s Star Wars. Let’s not worry. Let’s move on.’”
“It’s Star Wars. Let’s not worry. Let’s move on.” That’s the dismissive attitude that Rian Johnson applied to The Last Jedi, and will therefore likely bring to the table for his own trilogy.
