Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, a feminist director, has been chosen to direct the upcoming untitled “Star Wars” film set for release in 2026.

This marks the first time a woman and a person of color will direct a “Star Wars” movie.

Obaid-Chinoy expressed her excitement about the project, emphasizing the significance of having a woman shape a story in the “Star Wars” universe. (Trending: Pro Sport Announces Shock Decision On Transgender Athletes)

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

“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.

She also mentioned her desire to make men uncomfortable as a director.

“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,” continued the director.

“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,’” explained Obaid-Chinoy.

Details about the movie are scarce, but actress Daisy Ridley has expressed enthusiasm about the story.
