Disney and LucasFilm announced that Colin Trevorrow is out as the director of the upcoming Star Wars: Episode IX. Reports indicate that the the departure is mutual due to differences over the script. Trevorrow and LucasFilm have “mutually chosen to part ways” and their “visions for the project differ.”
This is the second change for a Star Wars-related movie within the past few months. Back in June, it was announced that Phil Lord and Christoper Miller were being replaced by Ron Howard on the unnamed Han Solo movie.
Trevorrow previously worked on Jurassic World. He was tapped for Star Wars: Episode IX just over two years ago.
A new producers has not yet been named. Star Wars: Episode IX is scheduled to hit theaters in May 2019 with production scheduled to begin sometime next year.
