Josh Trank is having a rough time. Following rumors of issues on the set of Fantastic Four, the director didn't make an appearance at Star Wars Celebration — and that was after rumors had been circulating for a while about his potential exit from the franchise. Following Celebration, it was announced that Trank was officially off the second Anthology film, and then came even more rumors. The director has finally spoken out about his reasons for parting ways with Lucasfilm, and he definitely makes it sound as though it was his decision, not Disney's.

For lapsed Star Wars fans who have finally begun to forgive this series for its many transgressions, the new canon has been a blessing. Sure, some longtime fans were angry that years worth of novels and comics and video games were wiped away so Disney and Lucasfilm could rebuild this saga from the ground up, but this decision has resulted in a creative renaissance. Marvel’s new Star Wars comics, for example, are nothing short of exceptional and thanks to the new clean slate, the writers and artists involved are pretty much allowed to do whatever the hell they want.

When rumors first began circulating about the Star Wars Anthology films, we’d heard conflicting things about both of them, but the most consistent rumor is that the second project involves Boba Fett and possibly Han Solo.

The timeline of Star Wars history is filled with all kinds of odd corners, left turns, and wild diversions, but there’s nothing quite as strange as Black Angel. A 25-minute medieval fantasy short that was attached to the earliest screenings of The Empire Strikes Back in 1980, the film was considered lost for decades until its rediscovery in 2013. Now, this long-lost object of curiosity is getting the feature treatment and original writer/writer Roger Christian is set to return.
