‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ and ‘Episode IX’ Directors, Lucasfilm To Discuss Princess Leia’s Future

Star Wars The Force Awakens Trailer 20

The tragic passing of Carrie Fisher hit everyone pretty hard last week. Not only was she a major figure of the Star Wars universe, she was also a writer and someone who was able to overcome the darkest parts of her life to become an inspiration. It’s insensitive to talk about what will happen to her Princess Leia character (she will always be royalty) now that she is gone, but here we are.

There is a new report that says she was to have a larger role in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VIII and Episode IX. Rian Johnson (director of Episode VIII) and Colin Trevorrow (director of Episode IX) are set to discuss how Leia will fit into the future of the franchise with Lucasfilm in the coming weeks. Check out the full report below.

Sequels always up the ante in terms of story and visuals. So after the success of Jurassic World, it is safe to say that will happen tenfold in the sequel. While the rumor that the production budget for Jurassic World 2 ballooned up to $260 million was nothing more than hearsay, the film is expected to begin filming early next year. Although Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow won’t be there for the sequel, he will still be very much involved in guiding The Orphanage and The Impossible filmmaker J.A. Bayona as he takes his place directing the fifth installment of Universal’s Jurassic franchise. Now, Jurassic World writer Derek Connolly is dropping a few hints about what to expect in the sequel. Check out the story below.

‘Jurassic World 2’ Could Have A $260 Million Production Budget According To Director
eelyajekiM   |  

Jurassic World Movie Review

Last week, A Monster Calls director J.A. Bayona confirmed that Jurassic World will become a trilogy and that Colin Trevorrow would still be very much a part of the creative process despite his obligations to other projects. Now, as far as sequels go, the film is going to get bigger. That’s not at all surprising. The first Jurassic World cost up to $150 million, and that’s not accounting for the marketing costs. Remember all those shameless production placements thrown into the actual film, like “Verizon Wireless Presents The Indominus Rex” or “Magaritaville?”

While the production budget is expected to go up, a new report says it’s expected to go way up. According to Bayona, the budget for the Jurassic World sequel would be $260 million, which would be a $110 million increase from the previous film. Check out the full story below.

Chris Pratt in Jurassic World

Last year, Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic World exceeded everyone’s wildest expectations by grossing $1.67 billion worldwide. As such, Universal Pictures announced that there would be a sequel. But with Trevorrow otherwise preoccupied with The Book Of Henry and Star Wars: Episode IX, the responsibility of directing the next Jurassic World would have to go to J.A. Bayona.

Bayona was named the director of the sequel a few months back, and while at the Toronto International Film Festival recently, the filmmaker confirmed that Jurassic World will be a direct sequel. See below for more on the story and who else will be involved in making the film.

‘The Orphanage’s Juan Antonio Bayona Is The New ‘Jurassic World 2’ Director

Jurassic World 2 To Be Directed by J.A. Bayona

Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World was a huge summer hit. Its success was thanks in part to director Colin Trevorrow, who had helped resurrect and reboot the iconic franchise. However, Trevorrow confirmed that he wouldn’t return to direct a sequel. But not because there was creative disagreements or anything like that, but that he and producer Steven Spielberg had agreed he would do one film. His confirmation to direct Star Wars: Episode IX pretty much put an end to any hope that he would direct a Jurassic World 2. So that left the studio in a position to look for a new director.

And it seems as though they have found one. A new report says The Orphanage helmer Juan Antonio Bayona is now set to direct Jurassic World 2. More on the story below.

‘Jurassic World’ Confirmed As A Trilogy

Chris Pratt in Jurassic World

With Jurassic World being the top grossing movie this year, Universal Pictures announcing that a sequel would follow did not come as a surprise. We know that film star Chris Pratt is already signed on for multiple films, as is Bryce Dallas Howard. However, Colin Trevorrow is unlikely to return considering he is busy directing Book of Henry, and will move on to directing Star Wars: Episode IX right after. But the filmmaker did talk about how the sequel would expand on the idea of weaponizing dinosaurs for military purposes.

While the sequel is continuing to be developed, it seems that we will be getting more than just one Jurassic World sequel, in fact we will be getting a trilogy. More on the story below.

Colin Trevorrow “Gender Imbalance” Tweet Reignites Tentpole Directing Controversy

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow

It was almost a banner year for Colin Trevorrow. Following his Sundance film festival hit Safety Not Guaranteed, he came out with his second major directorial effort, this summer’s Jurassic World. The fourth film of the franchise beat Marvel’s The Avengers‘s record for the number one weekend opening film at the worldwide box office. He was then recently named as director of Star Wars: Episode IX.

But now, the director finds himself in a bit of hot water after he attempted to address the issue of gender inequality in Hollywood. This has been an on-going issue, with many fighting for gender and racial diversity on the creative and performance front. In an attempt to explain this problem, Trevorrow has found himself on the receiving end of much criticism. After the jump see what he had to say, and how some are responding to his Twitter post.

D23 Expo 2015: Colin Trevorrow To Direct ‘Star Wars Episode IX’
eelyajekiM   |  

Star Wars title

During Comic-Con in July, there was a report that Star Wars: Episode IX was to be directed by Colin Trevorrow. At the time, it was suspected that he would make an appearance to confirm the news during the panel at Disney’s D23 Expo on Saturday. No such news came, and some had thought that Disney and Lucasfilm would let Rian Johnson, or even J.J. Abrams return to direct. But now we can confirm that Trevorrow is indeed directing Star Wars: Episode IX.

The announcement was made at the D23 Expo earlier today. While Trevorrow wasn’t able to make an appearance to talk about the project itself — heck Rian Johnson is still writing Episode VIII as we speak — the Jurassic World director was able to share some of this thoughts about taking on such an iconic franchise.

Check out what he had to say below.
