Hey! George Lucas wasn't too thrilled with The Force Awakens, so why not bring him back on the franchise that he started?

That's the idea behind a new petition that has launched on

They want Lucas to replace Colin Trevorrow on Star Wars: Episode IX.

Bring back George Lucas for the Star Wars movies. Put the father of the franchise as director of Episode IX . We really want this, please.

It is noted they have no issues with Trevorrow, they just feel it's only right for George Lucas to direct the last movie of the new Trilogy.

We have no problem with Colin Trevorrow , but he's not the right guy to direct Star Wars Episode IX . George Lucas as director of Episode IX would be the perfect way to end this new trilogy and make an epic farewell between the Father of Star Wars and the whole universe of the galaxy far, far away ....

As of now, the petition has a tad over 1200 supporters (800 more than when Newsarama posted a story about it).

So what say you? Is The Force still strong with George Lucas?
