I'd rather have the directors who grew up as fans of the originals and are inspired by the "well-established, trusted directors" than those directors. Most of them are also into their own franchises or outgrew franchises years ago. I mean, look at Ridley Scott. He came back to a franchise he created and made "Prometheus". Do we want that in our Star Wars?
I don't disagree with you. Lucas went back to his franchise and look what we got. It's funny you mention Scott because after watching Star Wars he said, "I want to do that" and made Alien and Blade Runner.
