Looks like the Jurassic World trilogy is taking a page out of Star Wars‘ book in bringing back a successful director. Writer-director Colin Trevorrow was the man who brought the first Jurassic World to the big screen. The movie went on to break all kinds of records, establishing him as an A-list talent, despite many fans’ distaste for the finished product.

With Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Trevorrow stepped away from the director’s chair (though he stayed on as a writer and producer). This was likely due to his involvement in Star Wars: Episode IX, a film he later stepped away from (J.J. Abrams later took over). But with his schedule now open, it looks like he’s ready to close out the trilogy he began.

While promoting Ready Player One, producer Steven Spielberg told EW:

“Colin Trevorrow is going write and direct the third Jurassic World story.”

Trevorrow returning to write the film is no big shock. It was announced earlier that he would be collaborating with Pacific Rim Uprising writer Emily Carmichael in writing a script based on a story from him and Derek Connolly.

What do you think of this announcement? Are you happy to see him returning to the franchise that put him on the map, or do you want to see another talent like J.A. Bayona (director of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) take on this trilogy-capping film? Sound off down below!
