Should 'Star Wars: Episode IX' Be Delayed?

Anakin will be back in some form in'Star Wars Episode 8

Lucasfilm is now struggling with its directors between the firing of Phil Lord & Christopher Miller from the untitled Han Solo project and Colin Trevorrow agreeing to exit Star Wars Episode IX, so Johnson's trepidation about working on the project - even long before either of those projects lost their initial directors - seems to have been justified.

In golf terms, this is like shooting par for 16 holes, then walking onto the tee at 17, lighting your clubs on fire, selecting a new caddy, driving to an entirely different golf club and beginning to play soccer.

Colin Trevorrow will no longer direct Star Wars: Episode IX, Lucasfilm announced on Tuesday.

Disney and Lucasfilm now looking for a new director to take his spot, according to Fox News.

It's an age-old cinematic fellowship that has weaved its way into everything from The Karate Kid to Batman Begins, and come December, writer-director Rian Johnson will be placing a laser focus on the teacher-student bond brewing between Rey and Luke Skywalker. This was the fourth movie in Jurrasic Park franchise and one of the most successful projects as well. We certainly did notice this before, because come on try and deny you haven't watched Last Jedi 100+ times over the lat two years. Lucasfilm took a hard pass. The franchise also saw shakeups in directors when Tony Gilroy took over from Gareth Edwards on 2016's "Rogue One" and Josh Trank was taken off of a Star Wars anthology film, the publication noted. Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired, and Disney brought in Ron Howard to replace them.

"We want to make sure that when we bring a female director in to do "Star Wars", they're set up for success". Because, gasp, who is the last Jedi? He also directed the basically-just-received Jurassic World, which featured fine dinosaur action and the alpha male/repressed lady dynamic prominent in all of Jeff Sessions's favorite books. Trevorrow had most recently directed the derided drama The Book of Henry and some anxious about how he would handle the gargantuan task of directing a Star Wars film - even with the box office cred he scored with Jurassic World, which made over $1.7 billion U.S. worldwide. In both cases Lucasfilm cited "creative differences" as the reason for the split, and while everyone is playing nice publicly, reports of ongoing clashes between the directors and Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy abound. "And it's absolutely tied up in that question of, What is Luke's attitude toward the Jedi?" If Spielberg signed on, it could theoretically push Indiana Jones 5 back far enough for everyone to realize what a hot mess that is.

Now, in 1977, he was likely referring to what would become 1983's Return of the Jedi, a film he could have directed, but didn't.
