    Star Wars Leaks (not the most reliable of sources, but they have a semi-good record I guess...I'm relatively new to them) has some "sources" that are "hinting" at that Rian Johnson might be stepping away from Star Wars after Knives Out.

    I personally have no idea whether or not this is true. However, I hope it isn't. I'm not the largest TLJ fan. I'm not even a Rian Johnson fan. But I AM a fan of how much the director clearly loves Star Wars and clearly loves the filming process. I think Rian stepping away from Star Wars would be seen as a victory for a lot of Trolls regardless of the veracity of the matter; and frankly, we've seen trolls in Star Wars win far too often.

    So what do you take of the news? Again, until it's confirmed, take it with a grain of salt.

    It's a big rumor right now and it's incredibly vague and ill-sourced.
    Could mean anything. Could be Dave and Dan.
    Could be Matt Reeves.
    But Rian Johnson drives clicks more tbh.

    Who knows. Would suck if he is leaving the project.

    Aye. It could even be The Mandalorian. Unless something changed in his psychic, back in August he said it himself he was still doing those movies.

    Could be Gunn leaving SS2.
    Could be they are exaggerating "massive IP" and it's a moderate IP but that doesn't generate clicks. We won't know until we know.

    I'm seeing a lot of vague 'disappointed' Star Wars gifs in my Twitter feed... so I don't know.

    Hate to break it to ya, @RoyleRancor, but the rumor is about Rian Johnson.

    It's also just a rumor. There's apparently been back-and-forth discussions on this thing for months. It might turn out to be BS.

    I know. It's just ridiculous and people are overreacting at this stage.

    BTW, we verified with some sources and came to the same conclusion as MSW. Johnson's reply is not cover-up, his movies are still happening.

    Remember, internet bros, projection is a hell of a drug. (I learned that from Luke 'on' Crait)

    It's kinda sad now.

    They hate him so much, they make up fantasies about him just to feel good for a minute.

    Happy news that the projects are still in the works. Really makes my day. TLJ is my favorite Star Wars film of all time.

    It's mind-boggling. It starts bordering with unhealthy, to put it mildly.

    This is pretty sad that a rumor from "the bros" and Screenrant of all people gets taken with any hint of validity. I am just glad that trolls like Geeks and Gamers got the rug pulled out form under them again.
