A Female Director Might Work On The Next Star Wars As Lucafilm Diversifies

Now that the Star Wars universe is expanding at a rapid rate, Lucasfilm has lots of new territory to explore. While the studio is keeping its upcoming stories top secret, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said that diversity both onscreen and behind the camera is a top priority.

In a recent interview Kennedy revealed that she's committed to bringing a female director to a future Star Wars flick. But she also said the studio knows that the situation could prove delicate. She said “We want to make sure that when we bring a female director in to do Star Wars, they're set up for success, they're gigantic films, and you can't come into them with essentially no experience. We want to really start to focus in on people we would love to work with and see what kinds of things they're doing to progress up that ladder now, and then pull them in when the time is right.”

Kennedy also said Lucasfilm is also looking to use new technology to make the Star Wars films more interactive experiences for viewers. The studio has partnered with Magic Leap, a virtual reality start-up, to create new projects.
