A group of Star Wars fans have started a petition to have Lucasfilm hire George Lucas to direct Episode IX.
Even though Episode IX already has a director, the fan petition on Change.org already has the 1,000 signatures it needs:
“We have no problem with Colin Trevorrow , but he’s not the right guy to direct Star Wars Episode IX . George Lucas as director of Episode IX would be the perfect way to end this new trilogy and make an epic farewell between the Father of Star Wars and the whole universe of the galaxy far, far away ….”
You need to ask yourself who Lucasfilm is more likely to listen to. 1,000 fans on a website, or the sound of cash registered caused by the guy who directed the second-highest-grossing movie of 2015? It’s pretty safe to assume Trevorrow will remain the director of Episode IX.
