Apparently I was kinda, sorta wrong.
Cray-Cray Kay-Kay, has not been fired...because they can't find anyone to replace to her.
Bob Iger absolutely wants to shit can her but nobody wants to take command of a post iceberg Titanic. According to Grace they offered the Job to J.J. Abrams (which would have been disastrous) but apparently he knows his limitations and he turned down the job flat.
Episode 9 is still a go because they are well past the point of no return there in terms of...well, everything. Kennedy has, according to this report anyway, stepped away from any input on Episode IX. It's now all on Abrams shoulders.
And sad new, Dave Filoni wasn't even considered for the job. Upside, Kiri Hart wasn't offered it either...yet. Disney wants to give it to a big name but none of the big names want it. During the brief period that it was making money on inertia, Kay-Kay brought in a shit ton of SJWs who are loyal to her. Anyone who takes that job either has to either figure out how to manage them or do a mass firing on day one.
Honestly the mass firing is the only thing that the replacement can do but first you have to find the guy.
Like I said, none of the big names want the job and Disney isn't willing to throw the dice on the little names...yet.
2019, will be the year that determines the future of the franchise. Episode 9 plus the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.
If the fans stay away from both, Disney will have to take drastic action.
