Feminist director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy is set to direct a 2026 “Star Wars” film, making her the first woman and person of color to do so.

She expressed excitement about the project, emphasizing the importance of having a woman shape a story in the “Star Wars” universe.

In a separate viral clip, she discussed her approach to making men uncomfortable as a director. (Trending: ‘American Idol’ Producer Sued For Sexual Assault)

“I’m very thrilled about the project because I feel what we’re about to create is something very special,” Obaid-Chinoy said.

“We’re in 2024 now, and it’s about time that we had a woman come forward to shape a story in a galaxy far, far away,” she added.

“I enjoy making men uncomfortable,” she said previously.

“It is important to be able to look into the eyes of man and say ‘I am here’ and recognize that.”

“And recognize that I am working to bring something that makes you uncomfortable and it should make you uncomfortable because you need to change your attitude.”

“It’s only when you’re uncomfortable, when you’re shifty, when you have to have difficult conversations, that you will perhaps look at yourself in the mirror and not like the reflection, and then say maybe, ‘there is something wrong with the way I think’ or maybe ‘there is something wrong with the way I’m addressing this issue.’”

Not much is known about the movie, but actress Daisy Ridley has hinted at an unexpected and exciting storyline.

“The story is really cool,” Ridley said.

“I’m waiting to read a script because, obviously, I don’t have any other updates. It’s not what I expected, but I’m very excited.”

“I haven’t read anything, but I know the story. It’s really worth telling, worth exploring, and I think people will be excited.”
