I like Trevorrow, and loved Safety Not Guaranteed, but JW didn't really do it for me. That being said he knows his way around a big budget blockbuster and his name has been in circulation since the beginning, so it would be no surprise at all.

Terrible move, if true. We're talking about a guy who has directed ONE blockbuster movie, and like three total movies overall in his entire career. Yeah, that one blockbuster made a boatload of cash, it was a pretty bad movie when it comes down to the contents.

But hey, a random female character will probably die in a long, ridiculous, and overexaggerated manner, so we'll have that.

I wish Abrams was just doing the whole trilogy...

Disney spent a lot of money, so they're expecting to make a lot of money... I honestly think we're about to see Star Wars go from a special thing that you can't wait for, to a watered down annual event that gets stale pretty quickly. 

Five movies have already been announced and the directors are all over the map.  I just hope that someone is maintaining a vision of how this is all going to come together or stay consistent, and I hope that at least 7-8-9 meets expectations, even if the spin-offs are spin-offy.

So what happens after Episode IX? Do we get anthology movies after that? Do we get a new series that isn't based on the Skywalker family? Star Wars needs as many movies as the Marvel Cinematic Universe gets.

I think that all depends on how well the new trilogy is received. And that means with fans, the mainstream movie audience, and overall profits.
