‘Jurassic World’ director Colin Trevorrow set for ‘Star Wars Episode IX’

The director of Jurassic World, Colin Trevorrow, has landed the dream job: to work on a Star Wars film. At Disney’s D23 Expo, the news was made official, Trevorrow will helm Star Wars: Episode IX.

Trevorrow “is someone I’ve been interested in working with ever since I saw Safety Not Guaranteed,” Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy said in a statement.

“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,” Kennedy said. “We are thrilled to have such an incredible talent as Colin join our family and step into the Star Wars universe.”

While production is far off, Colin will travel to Lucasfilm to begin working with artists and fellow creators, Disney’s statement revealed.

“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 crafts people,” Trevorrow said.

“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.”

Trevorrow is believed to be personally involved with writing/creating the Jurassic World sequel, but will not be directing the new film.

Star Wars: Episode IX will conclude the third trilogy of Star Wars movies that begins with Star Wars: The Force Awakens on December 18, 2015.
