Colin Trevorrow Talks About His Star Wars: Episode IX Departure

Before JJ Abrams was brought back to direct Star Wars: Episode IX, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow was tipped to direct the movie. Now the director has briefly talked about exiting the big project.

Lucasfilm never gave a real reason why Colin Trevorrow was removed from the movie, but it was mainly due to having creative differences.

Trevorrow briefly talked about exiting the movie during a new interview Empire. You can read his comments down below.

"I don't want to talk too much about it because I don't want to affect the way that fans get to see these films. When we were kids, these movies came to us from far away. They were a gift. And the more we talk about how they're made, the more it reveals that they're just movies. But they're not just movies, they're more than that. Beyond that, I got the opportunity to tell a story that is a celebration of everything I believe in, I got to tell it to George Lucas and I got to tell it to Luke Skywalker, and those are experiences I will cherish for the rest of my life."

It was rumored that Trevorrow wanted Episode IX to focus heavily on Luke Skywalker and General Leia, but plans changed due to Carrie Fisher dying in real life.

Not to mention Rian Johnson decided to kill off the Luke Skywalker character in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

It's unlikely we will ever learn about the reason behind him not directing Star Wars: Episode IX, but reportedly Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy did not like the script that he wrote.

Hopefully JJ Arbams is able to make Star Wars: Episode IX great because many fans are still upset over what happened in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
