Damon Lindelof, co-creator of Lost and The Leftovers, and creator of Watchmen, recently revealed he was fired from his Star Wars movie centered around Rey Skywalker, the protagonist of the sequel trilogy. Lindelof expressed that the project was a true “labor of love” and did not leave on his own free will. It is not uncommon for creatives to be fired by Lucasfilm, with the most notable cases being those of Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, who were replaced by Ron Howard in Han Solo: A Star Wars Story and Colin Trevorrow, who was replaced by JJ Abrams as director of Star Wars Episode IX. “Creative differences” are typically the main reason behind these decisions.

Lindelof mentioned that he may return to work on the franchise in the future, considering Star Wars occupies a special place in his heart since A New Hope was the first film he saw in the cinema. Though he was not successful in his first attempt, Lindelof is currently promoting his new series, Mrs. Davis, which has been a hit on Peacock, and is about a nun who faces a powerful artificial intelligence.

In 2012, Disney acquired the Star Wars franchise from George Lucas for a sum of US $ 4.05 billion. Since then, there has been a significant change in the direction and focus of the series, with new films and TV series being released. However, critical and public response to the most recent installments, The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker, was mixed. Despite the criticism, Disney has continued production on Star Wars content, with several TV series like The Mandalorian being a hit, and more projects being announced.

Only time will tell what the future of the franchise will be like, but it is undeniable that Star Wars still holds a special place in the hearts of many fans.
