Star Wars director confirms The Last Jedi's identity

The'Star Wars father and son reunite for the 40th anniversary of the franchise

"Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways on 'Star Wars: Episode IX.' Colin has been a wonderful collaborator throughout the development process but we have all come to the conclusion that our visions for the project differ", the statement read.

However, Johnson has made it clear that his movie won't fill in much of Snoke's backstory, leaving that task to whoever gets saddled with Star Wars: Episode 9.

Director Rian Johnson is the favourite take over at the helm of Star Wars: Episode Ix.

Trevorrow's departure comes three months after The Lego Movie's Phil Lord and Christopher Miller walked away from the Han Solo spin-off film. And while we have to wait until February for his Black Panther, the gorgeous trailers alone prove he knows how to handle incredible costumes and set pieces-a huge aspect of any Star Wars film.

Gareth Edwards: Edwards is credited as the sole director of the fine Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but the film was famously rewritten, reshot and reshuffled by Tony Gilroy, a gifted Hollywood script whisperer who basically invented a new third act, which likely explains the 75% of trailer footage that never shows up in the real movie. But despite Johnson needing to keep up with previous films, novels, and comic books featuring the characters from The Last Jedi, he was actually surprised by the level of artistic license he had on the movie. No, there's no new director to replace him.

We are still in the cone of uncertainty at this point so we need to prepare for a possible impact from this risky storm. This declaration would help gain federal assistance and provide funding for emergency protective measures.

Some fans might be disappointed they'll have to wait a bit longer for more answers surrounding the mysterious ruler, but they should be happy with the emphasis Johnson is giving to Kylo Ren in The Last Jedi. As such, Episode IX now has no director, and talk has turned to Lucasfilm being hard to work with. At the point of no return, the two parties were eventually separated and, as often in this kind of conflict, it is the studio who had the last word.

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

After last week's subscriber cover that featured Luke's robotic hand passing the torch-uh, lightsaber-to Rey, Empire Magazine's regular limited-edition cover reveal shines with holographic special effects that add a whole new dimension to the Star Wars galaxy. What would be the worst thing to happen if, say, the Han Solo film was pushed back to December 2018 instead of its May 25, 2018 date?

Marcia Lucas did more than just edit the original trilogy. Nolan, however, looks as if he's out of the franchise reviving business.
