Earlier today at the D23 Expo and on StarWars.com, it was announced that Colin Trevorrow will be directing Star Wars: Episode IX! Trevorrow is very well known for his recent success with Jurassic World. Kathleen Kennedy has stated that “Colin is someone I’ve been interested in working with ever since I saw Safety Not Guaranteed,” and that “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.” Knowing this gives us a great reassurance that we’re in for great ride with this new set of films. With that we say good luck to Colin and the rest of the crew and have fun making film history! Star Wars: Episode IX is set to hit theaters in 2019…
