Star Wars director confirms The Last Jedi's identity

  • Star Wars Last Jedi

"Colin has been a wonderful collaborator throughout the development process", the Lucasfilm statement read.

Previously we had learned some new information about Poe's alterations to his X-Wing fighter from Empire Magazine and now they're sharing a picture of Finn and Rose in the Canto Bight Casino.

In June Lucasfilm also fired the director of the standalone Han Solo film and replaced them with Ron Howard, the legandary director, famous for his movies like " A lovely mind (2001)" and " Rush (2013)". He's been working on the film since then, looking at a production start in January 2018.

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. With Howard coming on to direct the Han Solo movie and veteran English director Stephen Daldry ("Billy Elliot") reportedly in early work on a standalone Obi-Wan Kenobi movie, we might be seeing Kennedy's new thinking on how to take on "Star Wars" movies going forward.

Rian Johnson spoke to Empire about the choice of a clean casino in the middle of the movie and the director had some interesting reasons for choosing the location. Johnson has now confirmed in an New York Times interview, however, that Luke is the last of the Jedi. Massive Star Wars attractions are under construction at multiple Disney theme parks.

Star Wars and film fans online responded to Trevorrow's departure with snarky jokes and celebration.

The image comes thanks to Making Star Wars, who managed to get a first look at the digital trading card of Supreme Leader Snoke.

Brokenshire in Stormont talks with five main NI parties
The secretary of state will meet with Northern Ireland's main political parties on Monday to discuss the current impasse at Stormont.

According to other observers, the flop of the last film, Colin Trevorrow, the drama in The Book of Henry, would have weighed in the decision.

Now, in 1977, he was likely referring to what would become 1983's Return of the Jedi, a film he could have directed, but didn't. What I want to do is direct the last sequel.

In the wake of the Trevorrow news, many people were quick to speculate online about who might take up the mantle.

Luke mentions in the trailer that "it's time for the Jedi to end".

But perhaps the most suggested name was that of a man already well-acquainted with the force: Abrams.
