Star Wars: The Last Jedi Starring Daisy Ridley

What Rian Johnson did for Star Wars in The Last Jedi was very interesting. It challenged what we knew about the universe, but it also rubbed people the wrong way. Not only that, but it offered a very polarizing answer to one of the trilogy’s biggest questions: who are Rey’s (Daisy Ridley) parents.

Now we are learning that The Force Awakens and Episode IX director J.J. Abrams had a much different plan for who Rey’s parents are. Hit the jump to see how Johnson’s creative decisions may have hurt Episode IX. Spoilers below if you’re not caught up.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams

It’s beginning to look like the end of the Skywalker saga as Disney and Lucasfilm begin to launch new Star Wars trilogies, led by The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, and franchise films from Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Not to mention the spinoffs that step away from the galaxy’s most dysfunctional family. But before it can come to an end – if it truly is the end – we have to get to the untitled Star Wars: Episode IX.

J.J. Abrams returns to direct the film, taking the place of Colin Trevorrow. Abrams recently spoke a little bit about the status of the film, and said the plan was to begin shooting this summer. More on the story below.

Paramount Not Happy J.J. Abrams Is Directing Another Star Wars

Finding a director for a Star Wars movie isn’t as easy you might think. But recent moves show that Disney has a few sources they can rely upon. Take J.J. Abramsrecent hiring to direct Star Wars: Episode IX. The Force Awakens director signed back on to direct the final installment of the trilogy after Colin Trevorrow exited the project due to creative differences. While the move may be a cause for celebration for some, it is disconcerting for a studio like Paramount, who has given the filmmaker a home for Bad Robot projects – Cloverfield, Super 8, the Star Trek films, etc.

Now there is word that Paramount isn’t happy with Abrams directing Star Wars: Episode IX, and there’s conflicting reports on how much it cost the studio to let Abrams take the job. More on the story below.

J.J. Abrams To Direct ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’

Star Wars The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley and director J.J. Abrams

Just last week, Colin Trevorrow exited as director on Star Wars: Episode IX over creative differences. The film left a small void that didn’t need to be filled in a hurry considering that Star Wars: The Last Jedi hasn’t been released yet. Now, that void has been filled. By none other than Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams.

Lucasfilm hasn’t had a stable directing force ever since it was acquired by Disney. But they’ve been able to see three films all the way through with three directors. Abrams with The Force Awakens; Gareth Edwards – to a certain point – with Rouge One: A Star Wars Story, and Rian Johnson with the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In the past Josh Trank was forced out of another of the spinoffs due to his behind the scenes antics; Phil Lord and Chris Miller were let go due to creative differences on the still untitled Han Solo spinoff; and the same with Trevorrow on Episode IX. So let’s take a look at who will be joining the Star Wars director, below.

Colin Trevorrow Wants His ‘Star Wars’ To Resonate With A New Generation

Star Wars The Last Jedi image 01

As a kid who grew up in between two generations of Star Wars, it was odd to see the stark difference between the two. Though each generation may have its fans, Star Wars will continue to tell stories of a galaxy far, far away. Two years ago, Star Wars: The Force Awakens started a new trilogy, and last year we saw the first spinoff of its kind in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Now with the impending release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, fans are not only interested in seeing what the future holds for Rey, Finn, and Poe, but also Luke Skywalker and General Leia. Of course, there are others who are looking beyond The Last Jedi.

For Star Wars: Episode IX director Colin Trevorrow, he has his work cut out for him, as plans to have Leia in a more crucial role in his film had to be reworked when Carrie Fisher died last year. While it is still not clear what kind of role Leia would have had in the film, it appears that Trevorrow still wants to make sure that these films will resonate not only with current fans, but also new ones as well. Check out what he had to say below.
