A 'Star Wars' Film Will Have a Female Director Soon, Says Lucasfilm Boss

"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" European Premiere - Red Carpet Arrivals

Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy says a Star Wars film will "absolutely" have a female director in the future.

When asked at the BAFTAs if a female director could be in the cards soon, Kennedy answered, "Oh absolutely, without question."


We may have to wait just a bit though, as Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit, Thor Ragnarok) is in talks to take over as director for the new installment.
