Though it is still several years away, it takes awhile to make a movie as epic as Star Wars Episode IX will possibly be! With that, LucasFilm and Disney announced today Trevorrow will direct the movie.
Trevorrow’s most recent effort was Jurassic World which has gone on to be one of the most successful movies of all time.
“Colin is someone I’ve been interested in working with ever since I saw ‘Safety Not Guaranteed,’” says Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. “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.”
