Petition For George Lucas To Direct Final ‘Star Wars’ Film | Film News
A recent internet petition has surfaced, calling for Disney to allow Star Wars creator George Lucas to reprise his role as director on Star Wars:Episode IX. Yuri Luiz of São Paulo, Brazil started the petition on Change. org in a bid to “Put the father of the franchise as director of Episode IX” and as of now has 18,644 supporters of the 25,000 target, a number which is steadily growing.
Luiz claims to “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”. So far the petition has received mixed reviews, but with just 6,356 more supporters needed, it will be interesting to see how seriously it’s taken by those it aims to sway.
