BREAKING: Colin Trevorrow Out As Episode IX Director


By Ciaran Duggan,

Lucasfilm is moving in a new direction with the final chapter of the sequel trilogy.  The company and director Colin Trevorrow announced today that they have mutually chosen to part ways on Star Wars: Episode IX, which is currently slated for a May 24th, 2019 release date.

In a statement made on StarWars.com, Lucasfilm said:

"Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways on Star Wars: Episode IX. Colin has been a wonderful collaborator throughout the development process but we have all come to the conclusion that our visions for the project differ. We wish Colin the best and will be sharing more information about the film soon."

Trevorrow previously directed Jurassic World and, most recently, The Book of Henry.

This is the second time in less than a year that directors have parted ways with Lucasfilm - Ron Howard took over for Phil Lord and Christopher Miller earlier this year as director on the upcoming Han Solo film, scheduled for May 2018 release.
