Joss Wheadon, Peter Jackson... there are so many good filmmakers out there that are fans of Star Wars (or at least were inspired by the original trilogy) that I hope Disney lets many of them have a crack at the franchise. Some are already intimately familiar with the franchise (Joe Johnston) while others have already worked for Disney (Brad Bird). I remember when JJ Abrams was re-booting Star Trek, he admitted that he was more of a Star Wars fan.
Other directors who are fans of the franchise include: Jon Favreau, Frank Darabont, Kevin Smith, Drew Goddard, Seth MacFarlane and Zack Snyder. OK, maybe Snyder should continue being a fan rather than directing one of the Star Wars films, but you get the idea. I would love to see a Star Wars film from any of the other directors I mentioned. Any other directors that you would like to see helm a Star Wars movie? Del Toro? Blomkamp? Curon? Bigelow?
As an aside, it will be weird not to see the 20th Century Fox logo, especially not to hear that iconic theme, that I've come to expect at the begining of a Star Wars film.
