  1. My top 5 picks in no particular order:
    5) Jon Favreau
    4) Tag team of JJ and Rian (they worked together for a lot of story points on Last Jedi anyway)
    3) Denis Villeneuve
    2) Kathryn Bigelow
    1) Matt Reeves

  2. I honestly can't overstate how relieved I am about this news. Trevorrow got the job based on Jurassic World – which was a fairly bad movie. He's made one movie ever that was any good and everything else has been bad.

    For the spin-offs, I literally don't care who directs (although please stop making prequels!) – but for the saga movies, we've had enough bad ones – great ones are needed now.

  3. Ryan Coogler. He is already in the Disney family with Black Panther. BP will be done post production by the time episode 9 starts shooting. He knows how to dive into an existing franchise and start new archs or complete existing ones alla Creed

  4. I agree with continuing with Rian Johnson. In the Last Jedi featurette, everyone was praising Rian for bringing something new to Star Wars (unless everyone was just sucking up to him, lol).

  5. I have high hope for last jedi and I accepted reality of this movies for everyone (I mean kids and I dont expect Logan or Dark knight tone&genre Starwars ever).What I hate to see again is another soft reboot. If you have use JJ use him redoing ep 1 somehow ….. Thats better business …..

  6. If they announce Rian Johnson for IX that could really help boost the Last Jedi box office, as they would be showing the OPPOSITE of no confidence for Chancellor Vallorum.

  7. Disney like directors who conform to exactly the type of movie they want for maximum profit – and bollocks to originality and creativity – Abrams did that and survived intact, Gareth Edwards didn't and saw half his movie re-shot.

    I like Rian Johnson but I'm getting a bit concerned for Ep 8 now.

    Empire 2.0?

  8. J J Abrams "distinct clear vision?" He literally just remade a New Hope in his movie, that's not very distinct to me. What's he going to do in the next one remake Return of the Jedi ?

  9. 1. Brad Bird
    2. James Wan
    3. Edgar Wright
    4. Justin Lin
    5. JJ Abrams
    (*6.) Josh Trank…lol jk jk (but seriously that dude is talented, deserves another shot @ big-budget film after F4 mess-up)

  10. If JJ does this I'm worried he's just gonna copy paste Return of the Jedi. Disney doesn't have the balls to let Denis Villeneuve direct a Star Wars movie but if The Last Jedi is good then why not just keep Johnson?

  11. I would love to see David Fincher and he's actually flirted with projects like these before with 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, but they'll probably go with Rian Johnson.

  12. DO NOT bring JJ back, horrible idea. Another stupid comment is that no one else other than Johnson or Abrams can do it when there's plenty of talented directors out there who may also be fans of the sequel trilogy. Dan Murell, stop being closed-minded.

  13. Personally, I stopped caring caring about episode 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 when I realized that episode 7 was actually and dumbed down remake of Episode IV thinly disguised and a sequel to Episode VI.

  14. Thinking outside the box, yet well within the Star Wars universe, Lawrence Kasdan. Outside of George Lucas himself, or Frank Oz, you'd be hard pressed to find someone more rooted in Star Wars to direct this film.

  15. My choices:

    Steven Spielberg, James Gunn, Matt Reeves, Duncan Jones, Joss Whedon, Kathryn Bigelow, Edgar Wright, Brad Bird, James Mangold, Denis Villeneuve, Alfonso Cuaron, Guillermo Del Toro, Alex Garland, Christopher Nolan, David Fincher, Jon Favreau, Ava DuVernay, and most importantly:


  16. They need people who can give a movie soul, intelligence, fantasy, and complex likable characters. Star Wars is not supposed to be just a popcorn movie. JW was just very entertaining, with very little worth thinking about after.
