Star Wars: Rian Johnson to direct Episode IX?

Most damningly, he made 2016's The Book of Henry, which was apparently worse than Fantastic Four and made 98% of Star Wars Twitter think THIS IS THE GUY WHO'S HANDLING THE DEATH OF PRINCESS LEIA?

"I would do another SW movie in a heartbeat", the director admitted. "I knew that if it worked, it was the flawless time to step down - and if it didn't, no one would want me to do it anyway", Abrams explained. Lucasfilm are dead serious when it comes to the Star Wars movies and wants to make sure everything is ideal.

In today's Hollywood, being chosen to take on the saga is like getting the industry's golden ticket. That will be determined on December 15, 2017, when this movie hits theaters.

Getting fired (or stepping down over creative differences) from one of the movies doesn't look good because it gives the impression that you couldn't swing it, even if the director genuinely just couldn't mesh with those overseeing the franchise. Played by Andy Serkis in the film, two new images of the character have made their way online, one from the Star Wars Trading Card app and the other from a series of Star Wars stamps set to debut in the United Kingdom in October (via BBC).

With Colin Trevorrow no longer directing Star Wars: Episode IX, everyone has begun speculating like insane about who could take over. So, she definitely has experience directing action projects.

A Boba Fett movie will likely be back on its feet with a new director. Now, of course, there's rampant speculation about who will take over behind the camera, why Trevorrow was sacked, and what this means for the franchise.

"We want to make sure that when we bring a female director in to do "Star Wars", they're set up for success".

It was the second "Star Wars" project to lose a director this year. The piece suggests that "nothing is done yet" but the prospect of Johnson directing Episode IX "is certainly in the air right now".

Ms Kennedy and Walt Disney Co, which owns Lucasfilm, have repeatedly shown that they will do whatever it takes to steer the Star Wars franchise as they see best.
