The Top Choices for New 'Star Wars' Directors

Posted by 123Movies2020 on April 7th, 2020

Ever since the news broke that Disney purchased LucasFilm and planned to release the "Star Wars: Episode 7" movie in 2015, everyone has been speculating about what the movie might be about. Lots of questions have arose, including whether or not cast members from the original trilogy would return and who might join the franchise. However, the biggest speculation was who would come in and direct the new movies, which you'll find on right after release.

On Nov. 6, just in time for Election Day 2012, a fake campaign video appeared online asking people to consider Brad Bird for the next "Star Wars" film. It was a humorous look at the idea (see the video here), and brings up the good question of who should direct "Star Wars: Episode 7." Here is a look at some of the top choices for the movie.

Brad Bird

We might as well start off with Brad Bird. The man started his career with Pixar, a company that Disney purchased a few years ago. The video points out a lot of good reasons to choose Bird for the project. He directed many fantastic animated films, including two for Pixar/Disney, and then Paramount gave him the chance at a live action movie and he revived the "Mission: Impossible" franchise with the best movie of the series. He could be an amazing choice for "Star Wars."

Matthew Vaughn

Collider announced that Disney is in talks with Matthew Vaughn to direct "Star Wars: Episode 7." This could be an amazing choice. Vaughn has directed fantasy with Neil Gaiman's "Stardust" and has worked well in comic book movies such as "Kick-Ass" and "X-Men: First Class." He is a world-class director, can really excel when given the chance, and would be a fantastic signing if the rumors are true. Plus, as an added bonus, he could bring in Jane Goldman, one of the best screenwriters working today, to pen the script.

J.J. Abrams

This might not be a popular choice for people who love the "Star Trek" franchise, but J.J. Abrams came in and made "Star Trek" popular again. He took something that looked dead in theaters and created a new universe that was familiar enough to bring in old and new fans alike. Plus, his "Star Trek" movie was often referred to as something that both "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" fans could love. Could he do the same thing for "Star Wars?" Of course, this would remove him from the "Star Trek" world, but the new "Star Wars" movies would dwarf anything that "Star Trek" accomplished with its reboot.
