Colin Trevorrow rumored to direct Star Wars: Episode IX

It may seem somewhat of a disappointment that the Star Wars panel at Hall H will NOT be sporting a new STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS trailer, but that doesn't mean there wont be plenty to talk about or show off. J.J. Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy and Lawrence Kasdan will be taking the stage with some special guests, and if this rumor is true, one of those guests just might be JURASSIC WORLD director Colin Trevorrow.

Trevorrow hit it big with his second theatrical effort, JURASSIC WORLD, which has already grossed $1.4 billion worldwide. Not bad for his first big-budget film, eh? Given the length it took a 4th JURASSIC PARK film to get off the ground and the ease of which Trevorrow seemed to accomplish it, it comes as no surprise that he may be the name chosen to direct the third film in this new STAR WARS trilogy, EPISODE IX.

According to Heroic Hollywood, Trevorrow is the man who will be announced as the director and brought out during the panel later today. He would, of course, be following J.J. Abrams who's directed EPISODE VIII, and Rian Johnson (LOOPER) who's poised to direct EPISODE VIII. It makes sense that Disney would want to lock this guy down for another franchise film from a business standpoint, but nothing has been confirmed yet. Either way, we'll know for sure soon enough and keep you updated! No word yet on whether or not Luke will create a shaky alliance with a pack of trained wampas.

STAR WARS: EPISODE IX will hit theaters sometime in 2019.

Dumb script aside, Jurassic World was a fun time at the movies. That means the man can turn in something decent from a mediocre script. We know that Star Wars has a lot of team involvement and the script is probably already finished, so Trevorrow at the helm is still considered good news.

Well why not since he made a killing with Jurassic World & especially with it being only his second film. I enjoyed the film very much, it was fun, exciting & suspenseful. Let's just hope he can tackle something like Star Wars considering how passionate fanboys are about these films. We will have to wait & see, but it's cool to see different filmmakers take on the directing duties.

Jurassic World is pretty much a 2 out of 5 at best. This is anything but good news.

He didn't impress me with JW

I didn't like Jurassic World. I mean it just didn't seem like it did much right. There was no suspense, there was no Oh Wow! moment (besides the pan across the horribly CGI theme park in the beginning). He just relied too much on CGI for me to care about anything.

Not impressed, because he's really nothing special as a director.

I enjoyed Jurassic World so much I am team Trevorrow right now. I wouldn't mind seeing him do a Star Wars film. Probably have less Lens Flares than JJ Abrams. :)

Surprised how many people on this site loved Jurassic World. I found it pretty underwhelming. Poorly written, bad acting, zero chemistry between any of the characters. There were some well-done action scenes but overall fairly unimaginative and lacking any of the charm and sense of wonder found in the original. The ending was the same as the first film but times 100. And there were 4 credited screenwriters (including Trevorrow). To each his/her own but I was not impressed, so I don't know how

Hey BlueEyedRomulus, everyone can have different opinions about film. With the extreme box office success of Jurassic World, it stands to reason that the film has something that excited people. Trevorrow doesn't have a prolific resume, but his second film broke box office records. With a franchise like Star Wars, no matter who they hire, they are probably going to stick with a formula.

I wouldn't include the four screenwriters statement into your argument against Jurassic World, since the shooting script was actually written only by Treverrow and Connelley. Silver and Jaffa are included only because of WGA regulations, as their draft was rewritten mostly from scratch by the director and his Safety Not Guaranteed writing partner. All four were not involved at the same time.

Love the directing talent that these Star Wars films have been snatching up, left and right. Just goes to show how serious these new films are going to be.

here is the problem. Colin Trevorrow hasnt really proved himself. he didn't write or produce jurassic park, it was all delivered to him in a nice package for him to direct after he passed some interviews....thats all.

Kathleen Kennedy has earned the benefit of the doubt...

...especially having secured talent like JJ Abrams, Rian Johnson, Lord & Miller, and Gareth Edwards for the new Star Wars movies, but this still feels like a massive mistake. It's clear that the box office success of Jurassic World got him on their radar, but it's not like Trevorrow actually had everything to do with it grossing over $1 billion. In fact, NOTHING about Jurassic World has convinced me that he can handle Star Wars, or any big budget blockbuster for that matter. I sincerely hope

I sincerely hope his pitch blew away the executives, because I just don't how you can go from JJ Abrams, to Rian Johnson, to Colin Trevorrow of all people. There are dozens of more skilled directors that deserve this opportunity more than him.

I support this. I thought he did a great job with Jurassic World, especially with how he paid homage to the original. This film will essentially close the saga.. certainly a lot of pressure for any director. I think he will do a fine job
