'Star Wars: Episode IX' loses writer/director Trevorrow over movie vision

Who should direct Star Wars: Episode IX now? Here's 9 directors to consider

Barely two months after the dismissal of Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the duo who was in charge of implementing the spin-off devoted to the youth of Han Solo and who has chose to leave the ship in full production, it is the turn of Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World) from. Mangold's film gave two terrifically iconic characters proper sendoffs with their best movie to date; we'd love if that ends up happening with Luke Skywalker, too.

It's easy - Star Wars fans quickly made suggestions as to who could direct. Michelle MacLaren, a director and producer who most recently directed the pilot episode of HBO's The Deuce, surfaced a few times.

It was unclear why Ms Kennedy lost confidence in Trevorrow, who is best known for directing Jurassic World, which took in US$1.7 billion (S$2.3 billion) worldwide in 2015.

Rian Johnson might be pretty happy working on Star Wars: The Last Jedi but it seems like the filmmaker also had his own hesitations joining Lucasfilm's roster of directors working to expand the galaxy far, far away.

Rian Johnson is directing the trilogy's middle installment, 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi, ' which hits the screens in mid-December this year.

Arriving Dec. 15, Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Lupita Nyong'o as Maz Kanata, Domhnall Gleeson as General Armitage Hux, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma and Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke. Trevorrow was introduced as the director of the ninth film in the main Star Wars franchise in August, 2015. "The fact that both of them at some point said, 'O.K., even if this isn't what I was expecting, I'm going to trust you, ' - that was really touching".

Prince William, Duchess Catherine Expecting 3rd Child: Palace
Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their third child , Kensington Palace announced early Monday. The royal family is growing! There were several signs that Kate could be expecting, according to reports.

Trevorrow was due to write and direct the movie.

Trevorrow's departure as director of the upcoming movie has been rumored since June before his film "The Book of Henry" failed to deliver at the box office, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The big one? That the new director of Episode IX will be a woman and/or someone from a minority background.

A great Star Wars film finds the right balance of fun and excitement with meaningful, emotional moments.

RON HOWARD - When trouble began on the set of Han Solo, Lucasfilm tapped him to take over and right the ship. "And I knew this would mean so much to me - the worst thing I can imagine is having a bad experience making a Star Wars movie".
