STAR WARS - EPISODE IX Script Issues Led To Director Departure

BREAKING Colin Trevorrow is Out as Star Wars Episode IX Director

The hiring of Jack Thorne in August to do a new draft of the Star Wars: Episode IX script was reportedly done to fix the issue and avert the need to replace Trevorrow like Lucasfilm had recently done with Han Solo's Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

Honestly, we shouldn't read this as anything more than a playful joke on Waititi's part. 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 there was Trevorrow, fresh off the monster success that was "Jurassic World".

A THAAD battery normally consists of six launchers, but only two have been operational so far at the site in rural Seongju. Japan on the other hand has supported the plans, saying it will contribute to peace and stability.

Episode IX will conclude the third trilogy of Star Wars movies that began with Star Wars: The Force Awakens on December 18, 2015 and will continue on December 15 with Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The responsibility of adding on to the Star Wars franchise can be daunting and in an interview with The New York Times Johnson admitted that he had freaked out when he was offered the role of director by Lucasfilm, saying that he couldn't sleep well days after the offer was made.

It only took Lucasfilm, owned by Disney, a day to find their replacement - double Oscar victor Ron Howard.

The shadowy face behind the rise of the villainous First Order just got a little bit clearer, thanks to a new image from Topps' Star Wars: Card Trader. As for the next Star Wars director, there's plenty of time to get things sorted, as Episode IX isn't due out for a couple of years. And if it n 'there was not yet a big plan unveiled beyond the ninth film by Disney, it is thought well that they are thinking about in their offices with air conditioning. Let's throw some names on the wall as possible directors for Episode IX and see if any of them stick.

PATTY JENKINS - "Star Wars" has always been a franchise with strong female characters. He wasn't fired, but Lucasfilm brought on Tony Gilroy to direct the reshoots on "Rogue One". Who better to tell the final chapter of Rey's journey from scanvenger to, presumably, Jedi than the director of "Wonder Woman?". It's weird, it guarantees most of the Han Solo movie is hot wacky garbage and it makes those of us on planet nerd scream IT'S A STAR WARS MOVIE, HOW HARD IS THIS, and by "scream" I mean "cleverly tweet" because that's the only way we can work out emotions. Based on his social media posts, Howard seems to be having a blast playing with his new "Star Wars" toys.
