With Solo: A Star Wars Story currently taking center stage due to its box-office shortcomings, we get some news of an older Star Wars issue, Colin Trevorrow leaving Episode 9. The Jurassic World director was set to helm the third installment of the sequel trilogy but left the project due to creative differences. Most recently it was reported his departure had to do conflicts between his vision and the events that took place in The Last Jedi. Trevorrow recently spoke with Empire Online and discussed the upsides of being involved in the project:
“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.”
I would be very interested in learning where Trevorrow was taking Episode 9, perhaps someday, that will all come to light. From watching interviews, Mark Hamill has said that he and Trevorrow were, “On the same page,” when it came to Luke Skywalker. Most all of the Disney Star Wars films have had some sort of early problems. The Force Awakens was pushed back from its original date, Rogue One had massive reshoots, we all know the trouble with Solo, whatever is causing these production issues needs to be worked out.
