Bryce Dallas Howard’s recent performance in The Book of Boba Fett drew applause from fans of the franchise, who are now asking that she will helm her own movie trilogy. Following the episode “Chapter 5: The Return of the Mandalorian,” many viewers rushed to Twitter to request a Bryce Dallas Howard-directed Star Wars film series. They believe she has a thorough knowledge of the franchise’s structure and are eager to see her talent on the big screen. Fans seem to think Star Wars has a distinct vibe to it, and Howard understands how to recreate it.
After producing two episodes of The Mandalorian in 2019 and 2020, Howard garnered similar appreciation from viewers. “Chapter 11: The Heiress” includes extensive Mandalorian lore, signaling to fans following “The Return of the Mandalorian” that the filmmaker should maintain sewing the connections between future Star Wars storylines. Thematically, her Book of Boba Fett episode picked up where “The Heiress” left off, requiring Din Djarin to face his bond with the Mandalorians who fostered him.

Although the series has gotten mixed reviews from fans of the series since its debut on December 29, the attention on Din in “The Return of the Mandalorian” has piqued viewers’ interest in where the series is going. With only two episodes remaining in the season, remaining filmmakers Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau will wrap up what the show’s previous directors started.

Give Bryce Dallas Howard a Star Wars thing. The whole thing. Series. Movie. Trilogy. Whatever. Just give it to her and back off.

Can Bryce Dallas Howard direct the next trilogy please so we can end the “you just don’t like women in Star Wars” argument. Pretty sure her trilogy would SLAP. She’s a force to be reckoned with and understands “The Star Wars feel” as a director. #starwars #BryceDallasHoward pic.twitter.com/BmKwbIX61v

Supporters want Bryce Dallas Howard to join the list of renowned directors like Taika Waititi of Thor: Ragnarok and Patty Jenkins of Wonder Woman 1984, all of whom are expected to helm upcoming Star Wars films. Some presume that she will come back to steer another episode of Season 3 of The Mandalorian, but enthusiasts will have to put it on hold until the directors’ selection is released to see if she will make her Star Wars movie directing debut.
