Lucasfilm Fires Star Wars Episode 9 Director Due to Vision Differences

Lucasfilm Fires Star Wars Episode 9 Director Due to Vision Differences

While some were hoping that this empty position would be an opportunity to bring in new blood to the production, it looks like Lucasfilm is considering an in-house hire, right from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Nothing has been officially confirmed just yet, but with Johnson having recently tweeted that, "I'd do another Star Wars movie in a heartbeat", we'd imagine it's only a matter of time. "And everybody involved in that movie is passionate about it and worked on it very hard and continues to work on it very hard". According to the article, the scene on the planet Cantonica takes place about midway through Star Wars: The Last Jedi and is said to be a key component to the story.

"George [Lucas] came here to make Star Wars and immerse himself in this place and got far away from Los Angeles, from Hollywood, really from America", Trevorrow told The Associated Press at the time. The piece suggests that "nothing is done yet" but the prospect of Johnson directing Episode IX "is certainly in the air right now".

The listing further reveals that the smartphone will flaunt a 6.2-inch display with a 2960×1440 pixels resolution. The smartphone is also likely to feature a dual camera setup at the rear and a new all-metal build.

Johnson isn't a new name in the mix, as he directed Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is set for a December 2017 release.

Although not strictly a parting of the ways over creative differences, Fantastic Four director Josh Trank dropped out of developing a Star Wars spin-off in 2015, citing the enormous pressures of being involved with the franchise.

Samsung Galaxy J7+ now available in Thailand with dual camera setup
In case of Samsung Galaxy J7 +, the user interface has been tweaked a bit - something the company does with every smartphone. It also comes with 4 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage with a dedicated microSD card slot to expand the storage up to 256 GB.

Fisher's work had been completed on The Last Jedi and Leia will be given a "send-off" in the film, but she was at one point meant to be a major part of Episode IX. But the pervasive sense that the film has to open next May, whether Lord and Miller direct it, or Howard, or someone else, is both baffling and unnecessary. A big reason for that is because the current fandom for "Star Wars" is beyond anything the franchise has ever experienced before, and it seems everyone can't get enough information, whether it's rumors or facts.

Speaking of the Han Solo movie, that's another Star Wars movie that lost its directors earlier this year.

"We can all relate to Kylo: to that anger of being in the turmoil of adolescence and figuring out who he's going to be as a man; dealing with anger and wanting to separate from his family".
