Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm, hopes to appoint a female director to a “Star Wars” film in the future.
Kennedy made an appearance at the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit in Washington, and discussed the possibility of a female helmer with The Guardian.
“There’s nothing we’d like more than to find a female director for ‘Star Wars’,” she said. “There is an assumption made that the people involved should predominantly be men. There are women who are ‘Star Wars’ fans. That’s what’s so insane.”
While the directors for the next installments to the main saga have already been found -- J.J. Abrams for Episode VII, Rian Johnson for Episode VIII and Colin Trevorrow for Episode IX -- Kennedy would love to find the right female director for one of the Star Wars spin-off films.
The franchise is made for a demographic, which is probably 90% men, can they relate to a female..? Probably not, the franchise is for men..
