Colin Trevorrow Steps Down as 'Star Wars: Episode IX' Director

Colin Trevorrow has officially stepped down as the director of the upcoming movie Star Wars: Episode IX.

The 40-year-old director broke out with his indie hit Safety Not Guaranteed in 2012 and then directed the monster hit Jurassic World in 2015.

Colin‘s most recent movie was this summer’s The Book of Henry, a passion project of his that was not well received by critics.

“Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways on Star Wars: Episode IX,” the producers of the film announced on StarWars.com. “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.”

The directors of the upcoming Han Solo movie were also replaced, though that shockingly happened in the middle of production.

Colin Trevorrow Responds to 'Book of Henry's Negative Reviews

The reviews for Colin Trevorrow‘s new drama The Book of Henry were very negative and now the director is speaking out about the criticism of the film.

“It’s a little heartbreaking, without getting too personal, and I think it’s just because it came to us as a bit of a shock,” the director said in an interview with Empire magazine‘s podcast. “We screened this movie to so many people, and we’d had reactions from so many people that we felt we knew what we had and we knew how it was affecting the audiences. And that actually hasn’t changed.”

While critics panned the movie, audiences are connecting with it and the film has a 70% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, compared to the 22% rotten score from critics.

“It affects audiences in the same way that we thought it would. We did not anticipate that level of vitriolic dislike for the film. And in the end, do I want to be somebody who can please both audiences and critics? Absolutely. So is that hugely disappointing? It is,” Colin added.

Colin directed the massive hit movie Jurassic World and his next movie is Star Wars: Episode IX, which has not yet started filming.

“I’m not going to say this is some kind of movie of the future. It’s not that. But I do believe in what I did, and I hope as people see it some of that will become evident,” he added about The Book of Henry.

May the force be with her, because kids, she is going to need it. All I ask is that you don’t ruin the surprise for others. #TheLastJedi #starwars #broughtsomefriendsalongfortheride.”

J.J. Abrams & George Lucas Buddy Up at 'Star Wars' Premiere!

George Lucas gives photographers the thumbs up while hitting the red carpet with J.J. Abrams at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere held at the Dolby Theatre on Monday (December 14) in Hollywood.

The two Star Wars directors were joined at the event by Steven Spielberg and his wife Kate Capshaw, Colin Trevorrow, Rob Lowe and his wife Sheryl Berkoff with their two boys John Owen and Matthew Edward, Kathleen Kennedy and producer Frank Marshall, J.J.‘s wife Katie McGrath, and chief executive officer of The Walt Disney Company, Bob Iger.

J.J. recently opened up on if the pressure of the film is getting to him.

“Sure, but here we are. It’s like I’m standing at the doorway of the airplane door and we’re about to open the door,” J.J. told the LA Times. “Do I hope the parachute opens? Yes. But every time I feel remotely paralyzed by the noise or anticipation or expectation of it, I just look at the work I’ve seen done and I’m just grateful.”

FYI: J.J. is wearing Aldo shoes.

'Star Wars' Brings on New Director, Gets Disney Theme Parks

A lot of major Star Wars news was announced at Disney’s D23 Expo on Saturday (August 15), including who will direct the upcoming film Star Wars: Episode IX.

Colin Trevorrow, who helmed this year’s blockbuster mega-hit Jurassic World, will be directing the film due in theaters in 2019.

“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,” Colin said in a statement. “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.”

It was also revealed that Star Wars Lands will be added to Disney Theme Parks in California and Florida!

“I am thrilled to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Disney Parks and Star Wars,” Disney CEO Bob Iger said. “We are creating a jaw-dropping new world that represents our largest single themed land expansion ever. These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new Star Wars planet, including an epic Star Wars adventure that puts you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.”
