Colin Trevorrow To Direct Episode IX!


The first big announcement to come out of D23’s Star Wars presentation is that Colin Trevorrow, director of “Jurassic World” and “Safety Not Guaranteed” will in fact be directing Episode IX!

Here is what Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Trevorrow had to say about the announcement from StarWars.com:

Kathleen Kennedy:

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:

“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.”

There were rumors about Colin Trevorrow directing Episode IX during Comic-Con, but it’s great to have it be made official, as well as to know all the directors for the sequel trilogy! There’s no official release date yet, but Star Wars Episode IX will release in 2019.
