    Her contract ends in 2021, and Disney has said it won't be renewed. The word around the internet is that she's been fired, because she produced a batch of films that didn't do well, and the Sequels (EP 7-9) also didn't get good reviews. The internet also seems to say that, while Disney will not do away with Ep 7-9 as canon, they will ignore it.
    If they don't like it, they should just do what they did with the Expanded Universe, ie, declare it non-canon or the imagination of some kid playing a video game. And, if they're going to do that, they should do the same with Ep 1-3, which are now known to be terrible.

    Provide a source besides a vague reference to "the internet."

    Possibly the same "sources" that says that there is a Lucas Cut of Rise of Skywalker that is being deliberately suppressed?

    Of course. And Alex Kurtzman is about to go on trial for Crimes Against Roddenberry. And has already been secretly fired.

    Hey, might as well have some fun in this thread before it's locked.

    Evidence? Sources?

    If there are not specific names and documentation then I'll toss this in to the trash heap were it rightfully belongs.

    The internet also says men can get a 10-inch dong with the right tablets/meditation/stretching.

    Are they hiring for a new lead? This could be my chance. :)

    Okay? Kennedy ran the franchise for damn near a decade. Solid run by any measure.

    So, yeah.....

    This rumor has been going around for about a week now. Several YouTube channels have been making videos with the same clickbait titles that suggest this. Haven't watch any of them.
    Same about the 'Disney will retcon the sequels' bullshit.

    And contrary to what "the internet" will have you think, most of the Star Wars movies done on her watch were financial successes, with Solo the only one that underperformed. Four out of five success rate in a period of five years isn't something someone gets fired over.

    Reputable source!

    Oh wait! It’s Cosmic Book News! Rumormongering, lying, Fandom Menace-supporting Cosmic Book News — a website that has shown their disdain for most everything Disney Star Was and have wanted Kennedy’s head on a plate since TLJ came out.

    Maybe we should have a News From Dubious Sources thread like the Future of Trek forum has.

    According to this Desert News article, Grace Randolph from a show called Beyond the Trailer (which I have never heard of, but doens't seem very fandom menace-y to me) claims that Kennedy's contract won't be renewed in 2021 and that Dave Filoni and Jon Favreu will be replacing her. I'm really not sure why she'd know those things, if they are indeed true, but she doesn't seem to have this years long hatred for Kennedy.

    Also, Cosmic Book News sucks so bad, their Richard Rider fanaticism got called out in an actual Nova comic, featuring the return of Richard Rider, that they boycotted because it also starred Sam Alexander.

    Grace Randolph may not be a part of the FM. But she does claim to have a lot of information that is similar to theirs.

    It’s almost as if she’s Fandom Menace-adjacent.

    Grace Randolph purports herself to be a legitimate journalist, but she has as little actual credibility as people like Tucker Carlson, Ann Coulter, and Rush Limbaugh.

    Can the Mods close this farce of a thread please?

    It's already been debunked, here.

    I know there will be a lot of folks dancing, claiming they were right all along. But Kennedy will be 68 years old next year, she may simply be ready to ride off into the sunset.

    What part of "this isn't happening" didn't you understand?

    That article debunks the idea that Disney is erasing the Sequel Trilogy.
