josh-trankJosh Trank was set to do the second Star Wars Anthology film, however, he is is now leaving the project.

“After a year of having the incredible honor of developing with the wonderful and talented people at Lucasfilm, I’m making a personal decision to move forward on a different path. I’ve put a tremendous amount of thought into this, and I know deep down in my heart that I want to pursue some original creative opportunities. That said, the Star Wars universe has always been one of my biggest influences, and I couldn’t be more excited to witness its future alongside my millions of fellow Star Wars fans. I want to thank my friends Kathleen Kennedy, Kiri Hart, Simon Kinberg, and everyone at Lucasfilm and Disney for the amazing opportunity to have been a part of this. May the Force be with you all.” -Josh Trank

Note that Josh Trank was suppose to be at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim for a panel with Gareth Edwards but did not show up, so it would seem his exit has been in the works since at least then.

  • Adam Bray also did a quick write-up for StarWars.com on Ultimate Star Wars.
  • And via Jedi-Bibliothek, there are some new DK titles for December with The Force Awakens in the title. This will certainly help us figure out that 20+ book equation. Among the titles revealed are a new visual dictionary, cross-sections, two sticker books and a kid’s book. While the last three are a bust, a new visual dictionary and cross-sections book on The Force Awakens will be very very cool.

  • Aside from Paul S. Kemp‘s new Star Wars novel Lords of the Sith, you can check out the eBook version of Blackguards for a new Egil & Nix short story by Paul.
