Colin Trevorrow Addresses His STAR WARS EPISODE IX Departure For The First Time

Colin Trevorrow was supposed to direct Star Wars Episode IX but parted ways with Lucasfilm over apparent creative differences, and the filmmaker has now addressed his exit for the first time. Check it out!

The new era of Star Wars movies have been no stranger to behind the scenes issues. Rogue One went through extensive reshoots, Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired from Solo, and Colin Trevorrow and Lucasfilm "mutually [chose] to part ways" over Episode IX.

Now, the Jurassic World director has finally decided to weigh in on the matter and it sounds like he was definitely grateful for the experience.

"I don't want to talk too much about it because I don't want to affect the way that fans get to see these films. When we were kids, these movies came to us from far away. They were a gift. And the more we talk about how they're made, the more it reveals that they're just movies. But they're not just movies, they're more than that. Beyond that, I got the opportunity to tell a story that is a celebration of everything I believe in, I got to tell it to George Lucas and I got to tell it to Luke Skywalker, and those are experiences I will cherish for the rest of my life."

If he shared his ideas with both Lucas and Mark Hamill, it definitely sounds like things got pretty far along with his version of Episode IX before parting with the studio over creative differences. He wrote a screenplay for the movie alongside his Safety Not Guaranteed and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom collaborator Derek Connolly but Jack Thorne was then brought in to give that version a rewrite. 

It seems as if that was what led to Trevorrow walking away from the project and Thorne's version was also ultimately scrapped in favor of a new one which is being worked on by J.J. Abrams and Chris Terrio. Don't feel too sorry for the filmmaker, though, as he's lined up Jurassic World 3 as his next film.
