"Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways on Star Wars: Episode IX", Lucasfilm said in a statement.

Honestly, we shouldn't read this as anything more than a playful joke on Waititi's part.

But now fans are calling for more representation and inclusion among the Star Wars filmmakers, urging Lucasfilm to be more diverse when it comes to the director's chair on Star Wars: Episode IX.

The Star Wars franchise lost another director this week - its third in the last four months - with the abrupt announcement that Lucasfilm had fired Colin Trevorrow, who was announced back in 2015 as the director of Episode IX and has been working on a script treatment since.

Among the many new locales Rian Johnson has introduced in The Last Jedi, the most eye-catching is undoubtedly the casino city of Canto Bight.

While it's important to note the buzz over December's "The Last Jedi" has been positive without reports of any backstage issues, it all makes you wonder. And if it n 'there was not yet a big plan unveiled beyond the ninth film by Disney, it is thought well that they are thinking about in their offices with air conditioning.

So, O'Donoghue has to put the tough questions to them at tough times and he can't win because, if he asks them, the squad are unhappy.

Have the firings, rewrites and reshoots been the result of bad instincts by studio or did the directors chafe under the studio's seemingly tight control over the creative process?

Also, though Trevorrow's horrific flop of an indie film The Book of Henry was not mentioned, ever since it was released in June, whispers had been circulating that this might in fact be the upshot of it.

Back in May 2015, Josh Trank was sacked from an untitled "Star Wars Story" film. Let's throw some names on the wall as possible directors for Episode IX and see if any of them stick.

"I'm beyond grateful to add my voice to the Star Wars Universe after being a fan since 5/25/77", Ron wrote on Twitter at the time. "Star Wars", like many franchises, have nabbed young directors who have either made an impressive first movie within the studio system or an ambitious indie film. Because, gasp, who is the last Jedi? "Even though it's Star Wars, the whole thing has felt bizarrely similar to my experience making Looper or Brick or The Brothers Bloom".
