Colin Trevorrow is the latest director to leave the untitled "Star Wars: Episode IX" after Disney and Lucasfilm made a decision to part ways with him. Plus, she's saddled to handle the forthcoming A Wrinkle in Time movie, so you know she wants to stretch her otherworldly muscles. Back in June, the directors of the untitled Han Solo prequel, Chris Miller and Phil Lord, were shown the door, also due to creative differences. While some were hoping that this empty position would be an opportunity to bring in new blood to the production, it looks like Lucasfilm is considering an in-house hire, right from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

That answers the Last Jedi speculation for now, but knowing the Star Wars mythology, there'll be roughly a hundred more questions to come.

A great Star Wars film finds the right balance of fun and excitement with meaningful, emotional moments. Also, Edgar Wright doesn't make bad movies, so why wouldn't the studio want him to direct one?

The project, reportedly an origin story centred on the bounty hunter character Boba Fett, has yet to get a new director or a release date. But "Star Wars" has the unique advantage of having incredible resources that it can rebound.

The pair were replaced by Oscar-winning filmmaker Ron Howard after clashing with Kennedy and writer Lawrence Kasdan, according to reports. And "Episode IX" (which is still in script stage) will soon be taken over by someone else. This isn't the first time Lucasfilm has parted ways with filmmakers (Josh Trank was removed from an unnamed Star Wars Story in the summer of 2015, while Gareth Edwards was sidelined during Rogue One: A Star Wars Story). While it's true that Hollywood is awash in franchises, it's hard to imagine that audiences will become disenchanted with or straight-up forget about the Star Wars world if we go more than a full 12 months without a new movie.

The reason why "Star Was" fans should not be concerned about the director drama is that, at this point, it has not affected our enjoyment or, more importantly for Lucasfilm and Disney, the box office performance of the movies. "And everybody involved in that movie is passionate about it and worked on it very hard and continues to work on it very hard".
