I have more big news to come out of Disney's D23 Expo this weekend! Disney and Lucasfilm have officially announced that Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow will be directing Star Wars - Episode IX!
Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy spoke about bringing Trevorrow to the film:
""Colin is someone I’ve been interested in working with ever since I saw Safety Not Guaranteed. The power of that film paired with the enormous success of Jurassic World speaks volumes about his abilities both as a storyteller and skilled filmmaker. We are thrilled to have such an incredible talent as Colin join our family and step into the Star Wars universe.""Colin Trevorrow then added:
""This is not a job or an assignment. It is a seat at a campfire, surrounded by an extraordinary group of storytellers, filmmakers, artists and craftspeople. We've been charged with telling new stories for a younger generation because they deserve what we all had—a mythology to call their own. We will do this by channeling something George Lucas instilled in all of us: boundless creativity, pure invention and hope.""Trevorrow did amazing work with Jurassic World so it'll be exciting to see what he can do with the Star Wars universe.
