Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy revealed on the BAFTA awards red carpet that a future Star Wars film will be directed by a female filmmaker.
After Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the franchise is about to head into a new direction with the conclusion of the Skywalker Saga. The Mandalorian has shown us a glimpse at what the future of the Star Wars will hold as the franchise moves away from the familiar. There are currently three Star Wars films slated for 2022, 2024 and 2026, with reports suggesting that a director is already on board. While that 2022 movie director is currently unknown, Kathleen Kennedy is also recruiting talent like Taika Waititi and Kevin Feige for future projects, not to mention Rian Johnson is also developing his own trilogy.
While there haven’t been any female directors for the films yet, Deborah Chow and Bryce Dallas Howard helmed episodes of The Mandalorian, with the former also set to direct the entirety of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. At the BAFTA awards, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy revealed to BBC News that a future Star Wars movie will be directed by a women.
