Colin Trevorrow Exits Star Wars: Episode IX

Posted September 5, 2017 by Eoin Friel in News

Wow, sounds like Disney are having all kinds of issues with their directors these days as THR is reporting that Colin Trevorrow is no longer directing Star Wars: Episode IX.

Lucasfilm and Disney announced the exit Tuesday.”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,” read a Lucasfilm statement.

Rumors of Trevorrow’s departure have dogged the project since early June, weeks before the opening of The Book of Henry, his thriller that was panned by critics and failed at the box office.

How about getting Spielberg or a more visionary older director? Robert Zemeckis? Peter Jackson?
