With the departure of Colin Trevorrow on the Episode IX project it’s fun to think about who could come in to replace him.
The first point to have a think about is it has to be someone that is going to stick to the path that the studio want. Creative control is very strong on a Star Wars project so in my eyes there aren’t many people that will be able to pull this off.
Here’s my list:
So who do I think will direct the final instalment - JJ Abrms. He’s a great director, kicked off the new trilogy and knows what to expect from Lucasfilm.
Depending on how The Last Jedi comes out Rian Johnson might be in with a shot but they may use him to write some of the script rather than direct.
Who do you want to direct?
