'Star Wars' Fans Want Bryce Dallas Howard to Direct a Movie

The actress Bryce Dallas Howard may have a significant career as a director ahead of her after impressing Star Wars fans with her work on episodes of The Book of Bobba Fett and The Mandalorian.

The Jurassic World star is being highly praised for her direction on the two Disney+ Star Wars series, with fans calling on her to direct a full movie.

It seems Bryce Dallas Howard picked up a few tips from her father, legendary Hollywood director Ron Howard, and has now cemented herself as a leading filmmaker in the Star Wars franchise.

Her father directed Solo: A Star Wars Story in 2018 and she reportedly spent a lot of time on set.

In fact, fans of the beloved franchise want her to helm a new Star Wars movie after her latest work on The Book Of Boba Fett episode 5, titled "The Return Of The Mandalorian."

Robert Rodriguez, Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Steph Green and Kevin Tancharoen have all directed episodes of the new series.

Bryce Dallas Howard previously directed episodes for The Mandalorian—the season one episode "Sanctuary" and the season two episode titled "The Heiress."

"Bryce Dallas Howard deserves to direct her own Star Wars Trilogy," reads one tweet with more than 14,000 likes.

"Bryce Dallas Howard is one of my ABSOLUTE favourite directors from #TheMandalorian, her episodes were fantastic, especially The Heiress so I am pumped to see what she has in store for us in Chapter 5 of #TheBookOfBobaFett."
