Well get a load of this Star Wars fans, Colin Trevorrow will not direct Episode IX. This may be the single best news I’ve heard, because as a fan I was downright skeptical that the man who brought us Jurassic World was suited for a galaxy far, far away. Sure I put my faith in LucasFilm and the House of Mouse, but truth is I never felt warm and fuzzy about their choice. I had fear and we all know fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate and hate leads to suffering! But now we have some uncertainty about the trilogy ending project which might be a good thing!
Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways on Star Wars: Episode IX. Colin has been a wonderful collaborator throughout the development process but we have all come to the conclusion that our visions for the project differ. We wish Colin the best and will be sharing more information about the film soon.
- Announcement from Disney and LucasFilm
The movie has already been in the development process with a considerable weight on its shoulders depending on what The Last Jedi reveals. There are a lot of questions left in the wake of The Force Awakens and considering how the previous two SW trilogies came to a close there’s going to be a lot of expectations here. Heck Revenge of the Sith is my second favorite flick in the saga followed by Return of the Jedi despite the Ewoks and thanks to an emotional climax. And the new feature will have to deal directly with the absence of Carrie Fisher.
But what do you think? Who will they bring in to replace Colin Trevorrow? Are you disappointed by this?
