Colin Trevorrow Wants His ‘Star Wars’ To Resonate With A New Generation
eelyajekiM   |  

Star Wars The Last Jedi image 01

As a kid who grew up in between two generations of Star Wars, it was odd to see the stark difference between the two. Though each generation may have its fans, Star Wars will continue to tell stories of a galaxy far, far away. Two years ago, Star Wars: The Force Awakens started a new trilogy, and last year we saw the first spinoff of its kind in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Now with the impending release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, fans are not only interested in seeing what the future holds for Rey, Finn, and Poe, but also Luke Skywalker and General Leia. Of course, there are others who are looking beyond The Last Jedi.

For Star Wars: Episode IX director Colin Trevorrow, he has his work cut out for him, as plans to have Leia in a more crucial role in his film had to be reworked when Carrie Fisher died last year. While it is still not clear what kind of role Leia would have had in the film, it appears that Trevorrow still wants to make sure that these films will resonate not only with current fans, but also new ones as well. Check out what he had to say below.

Star Wars The Force Awakens Trailer 20

Based on very early reports, General Leia was supposed to have a significant role in the new Star Wars trilogy. But with Carrie Fisher‘s tragic passing last year, it was unclear what would happen to Leia. Originally, the plan was to use existing footage for Episode IX. However, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy says that isn’t happening. In fact, they have been forced to write the script from scratch. More on the story below.

‘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.

Star Wars: Episode VIII header image

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will pave the way for future Star Wars spinoffs. These films will focus on the untold stories that are considered legend within the universe. While there is excitement to see more Star Wars, there is also a little bit of anxiety as it is unclear what the future may hold for these spinoffs and what will happen beyond Episode IX.

From what we know so far, Gareth EdwardsRogue One will center on a group of rebels’ daring mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, while Christopher Miller and Phil Lord will direct a young Han Solo spinoff. As for the saga films, Rian Johnson is currently hard at work with the yet-to-be-titled Episode VIII, while Colin Trevorrow will be gearing up for Episode IX. After that, well, your guess is as good as ours.

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.

Benicio Del Toro Offered Villain Role In ‘Star Wars Episode VIII’

Star Wars Benicio Del Toro

Now that we know who the villains are in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, its time to look ahead towards Star Wars: Episode VIII. Although the film won’t be released until 2017, it is surmised that John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, and Daisy Ridley will return to reprise their respective roles for the subsequent sequels. However, we aren’t sure about the villains. Comic-Con revealed that Domnall Gleeson would play General Hux, a high ranking military officer in the newly established First Order, with Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) working under him, though it is unclear if they will appear in sequels.

But as with almost every sequel, new characters are introduced into the mythology. Though we may not know the new characters that will be appearing in Episode VIII, there are reports stating that Benicio Del Toro (Traffic, Guardians of the Galaxy) is being offered a villain role in the film. LucasFilm and Disney are also keen on getting Joaquin Phoenix in a Star Wars film.

More on these stories below.

Rumor: Colin Trevorrow To Direct ‘Star Wars Episode IX’
eelyajekiM   |  

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow

There has been a lot of big Star Wars news happening as of late. With Chris Miller and Phil Lord becoming the new directors of the just-confirmed untitled Young Han Solo Film, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel happening tonight at San Diego Comic-Con, you can surely expect a new big announcements since it has been widely reported that there won’t be any new footage shown from the film. (It’s likely that Disney would probably much rather show footage at their own D23 Expo than anywhere else.)

One of the early bits of news is more of a rumor, but it is a pretty big one. According to Heroic Hollywood, Colin Trevorrow, the director of Safety [Not Guaranteed] and the hugely successful Jurassic World, will direct Star Wars Episode IX. More on this below.

J.J. Abrams On Star Wars: Episode VII Set Image

Star Wars: Episode IX is currently without a director. It has been long-rumored that Rian Johnson, director of Star Wars: Episode VIII, would helm the film.

The director has actually been attached to both films since last June, but was only confirmed to write and direct Episode VIII alone just last week. While the ninth Star Wars numbered film is still four years out, not to mention Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One and Josh Trank’s untitled 2018 Star Wars spinoff, a new rumor says that Disney wants to have none other than Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams return to be the film’s director.
