  • Joseph Gordon Levitt has a secret cameo in Star Wars The Last Jedi

Abrams takes over from Colin Trevorrow, who left the project last week, with Lucasfilm and parent company Disney citing creative differences as the reason for his departure.

While doing a Japanese press tour for the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi, writer-director Rian Johnson announced that actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises, 500 Days of Summer) will be appearing in a small cameo role in the upcoming film.

The Hollywood Reporter, citing unnamed sources, said the main point of contention was ongoing "script issues", with Trevorrow being forced into several rewrites. Apart from directing, Abrams will also co-write the movie along with Chris Terrio. "I LOVED Force Awakens so I'm sort of okay with Abrams returning, but at the same time, dang". Abrams has actually made quite the name for himself in recent years for successfully revitalizing exhausted film franchises.

The return of JJ Abrams to the Star Wars universe will not only excite the fans but will make a huge impact for Lucasfilm as well. This difficulty also weighed in as one of the biggest factors in the director's exit from the franchise. The largely bitter reception of the prequel trilogy led to The Force Awakens: a movie completely unlike the prequels and far more similar to the adored original trilogy. Ron Howard was brought in to replace the pair.
