Johnson helmed The Last Jedi, in 2017, and he was quickly signed to develop a new trilogy.
It's described as the "ultimate" LEGO Star Wars game.
The name-change on a road that runs through the scenic Inishowen peninsula has been approved by Donegal County Council. But it was also distinctly Star Wars, and it's hard to not get excited even if fans have been burned so many times before.
She also acknowledges the change of management in EA following her departure, saying "Both Patrick Soderlund and Jade Raymond have left in the meantime, and Laura Miele, who was the franchise general manager for Star Wars when I joined, is now in Patrick's role".
The Mandalorian is written and executive produced by Jon Favreau, with Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) directing the first episode and serving as executive producer alongside Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson.More news: Here’s your chance to win a free Samsung Galaxy S10

Kennedy spoke with EW, where she confirmed Bob Iger's recent comments that Star Wars movie will take a hiatus following Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, "We're going to take a hiatus for a couple of years".
"We needed to cut away to the villains, for one thing, which was something I never allowed us to do on Uncharted". The time period would also receive its own MMO in Star Wars: The Old Republic. The industry's changing all the time, she said, "and I'm glad for Respawn's sake, because I'm excited about their game, and I've heard great things about it".
What EA desperately needs is someone they can trust to get the story and gameplay right at launch, and without the need of post-launch patches to fix problems.
He later recalled conversations he had with Star Wars creator George Lucas regarding Palpatine's fate. She would add, "I think this is a huge opportunity to step into the galaxy in a little bit different part of the timeline". Do you think this is a good strategy to map out the saga instead of ruing what appears to be a patched together trilogy?
