For the first time in the entire Star Wars movie franchise, apart from George Lucas, there is another director to direct more than one Star Wars movies. Well, it is none other than JJ Abrams, who had earlier directed the first movie in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, The Force Awakens.
Lucas film President Kathleen Kennedy said:
“With The Force Awakens, J.J. delivered everything we could have possibly hoped for, and I am so excited that he is coming back to close out this trilogy.”
JJ Abrams will also be writing the movie with Chris Terrio.
According to sources, JJ Abrams was never the first choice to direct the movie.
Well, it would be interesting to see JJ Abrams direct Stars Wars. Right?
