That's only half the story. By that logic Kathleen Kennedy is the Star Wars uber-guru. She's not, she's a producer who wants to prolong Star Wars's profitability as much as possible and keep giving the clapping seals the same ****** meal to eat year after year after year. That's why I have some small level of respect for the prequels whereas I have none for Disney's SW - at least George Lucas used his success with the OT to try to do something in his own way (albeit with lots of merchandising opportunities).

I don't think we will ever see Joss Whedon do a Star Wars movie, since he wants as much creative control as possible, I doubt Lucasfilm would allow him to do what he wants.

Rian has ruled himself out of directing Episode IX, but JJ Abrams is being considered

And it's official, Abrams is back. In addition to directing, he's also co-writing the script with Chirs Terio

Chris ''Batman v Superman'' Terio.

JJ and Terrio? That's a one-two punch to the face. I guess they're better than Trevorrow but this is very disappointing to me.

Sounds like this is getting a page one rewrite. No way this isn't delayed until at least December 2019.

Well... at least he gets his chance to redeem himself after TFA. Not sure if he deserves it, though, frankly.

Well, anything interesting that gets added in VIII is sure to be rendered useless now, and we'll get an inverted remake of Return of the Jedi.

Star Wars has always had such interesting lore with the old EU and now I'm afraid it's going to be just another long running, boring, predictable action franchise...

So is Kylo Ren's scar going to go back to its original position in Episode IX?

I'm glad that Abrams is returning because he helped the franchise return to its former glory with The Force Awakens. I believe that he's going to have this trilogy end with a bang.

lol.. throw in a few tie fighters, and real props...and suddenly movie saved...

If this new movie turns out to be ESB 2.0, I wonder how many will start to defend the series afterwards, or start going like that nervous guy on the simpsons who witnessed the only bridge in town being taken out by comet debris..
