Finn's Secret Mission Begins in Latest Look at Star Wars 8

A statement released on the Star Wars website said Lucasfilm and Trevorrow "have mutually chosen to part ways" adding "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". Mangold's film gave two terrifically iconic characters proper sendoffs with their best movie to date; we'd love if that ends up happening with Luke Skywalker, too. As such, Episode IX now has no director, and talk has turned to Lucasfilm being hard to work with.

Lucasfilm is now struggling with its directors between the firing of Phil Lord & Christopher Miller from the untitled Han Solo project and Colin Trevorrow agreeing to exit Star Wars Episode IX, so Johnson's trepidation about working on the project - even long before either of those projects lost their initial directors - seems to have been justified. Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens on December 15th, and it'll be followed by the standalone Han Solo movie next year.

PM Modi shares Myanmar's concerns about extremist violence in Rakhine
In response, Myanmar security forces began days of "clearing operations" they claimed were needed to tackle terrorism. Several other agreements were also signed between the two countries.

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)".

Star Wars director has been changed again by Lucasfilm this year.

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.

Following the wedding, Princess Mako is expected to continue her job as a researcher at a museum at the University of Tokyo. The 25-year-old is expected to announce her engagement to former university classmate Kei Komuro , who works at a law firm.

Extensive reshoots on the anthology film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story led to widespread speculation that director Gareth Edwards had been unofficially sidelined on that project as well.

"The perception of these films is that they're all planned out on a secret sheet of paper in advance, but that's just not the case". Let's throw some names on the wall as possible directors for Episode IX and see if any of them stick.

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.

Venus Williams Set To Play Tuesday
The 27-year-old also gained a berth in the quarters in 2015, when she lost to eventual champion Flavia Pennetta . Kvitova got the early advantage to break for 3-1, but Williams then served to love and broke right back.

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. "And I knew this would mean so much to me - the worst thing I can imagine is having a bad experience making a Star Wars movie".
