Star Wars Fans Are Calling For The Resignation Of Kathleen Kennedy

Earlier today, word came out that production on Obi-Wan Kenobi series had been delayed, sparking rumors that the series had been put on hold for an indefinite period of time.

According to the reports, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy was unhappy with the scripts written for Obi-Wan and so the studio decided to delay the series production until the scripts could be rewritten for the project. While these reports have yet to be confirmed by Lucasfilm, fans have begun expressing their outrage over the news, demanding that Kathleen Kennedy resign from her post as the president of the studio.

Check out some of the tweets down below:

Reports about Obi-Wan Kenobi's delay is just one of the many reasons why Star Wars fans want Kennedy booted out of Lucasfilm. Star Wars hasn't been faring well the past few years.

The franchise's latest release, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, was supposed to be one of the most highly anticipated films of 2019. Not only as Episode IX supposed to close the curtain on Disney's Star Wars sequel trilogy, but it was also supposed to serve as the culmination of the entire Skywalker saga. There was a lot of hype built up around the movie. Instead of becoming a sure-fire win for Lucasfilm, The Rise of Skywalker became one of the most divisive films in the franchise.

Before The Rise of Skywalker was Solo: A Star Wars Story, the very first Star Wars movie to flop at the box office. Star Wars: The Last Jedi also received major backlash from the right-leaning portion of the Star Wars fanbase.

Of course, while we understand fans frustration over Kennedy, we don't think that the Lucasfilm executive is going to leave anytime soon. It seems rather unlikely given that her contract with the studio is still in place.

What do you think? Should Kennedy step down from her post as President of Lucasfilm? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is currently screening in cinemas.
