Colin Trevorrow Is Directing a Star Wars Sequel

It seems as if it’s a foregone conclusion that Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is primed to become 2015’s highest grossing film, considering its the most anticipated film of the year by the masses. Disney & LucasFilm are looking forward to the windfall, but they are also getting their ducks in a row for the future; Rian Johnson will direct Episode VIII, Gareth Edwards is bringing the pieces together for the first installment of the Anthology Series, A Boba Fett movie is on the horizon, a Han Solo origin story has been given a thumbs up; the Star Wars universe is going to make a comeback of forceful proportions over the next few years.

Rumors have been spreading at Comic Con that Colin Trevorrow, director of Jurassic World, is the odds-on favorite to direct Star Wars Episode IX. Now those rumors have been officially confirmed.

Today at the Star Wars Comic Con panel, Lucasfilm will bring out Colin Trevorrow onto the stage at Hall H to announce him as the next director of Star Wars: Episode 9!

ANAHEIM, CALIF. (August 15, 2015)—Today at D23, Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn announced that writer-director Colin Trevorrow will direct Star Wars: Episode IX, which is set for release in 2019.

There is no denying Jurassic World’s success has found over the last few weeks, but I wonder if LucasFilm has considered anyone else because I found Jurassic World was as dull as dishwater truth be told. Maybe I’m being unfair to Trevorrow but I was hoping a more established filmmaker would take the reigns to close the new Star Wars trilogy.

Star Wars Episode IX is scheduled for release in 2019.
