Star Wars: Episode IX loses director Colin Trevorrow

At this point, it’s almost a given that any future Star Wars project will lose its director. Directors for the untitled Han Solo spin-off Phil Lord and Christopher Miller split from the project in June, soon after replaced by Ron Howard. Now, Star Wars: Episode IX has lost director Colin Trevorrow.

According to The Wrap, Trevorrow stepped down as director, Disney said Tuesday. In a statement by Disney, they added:

“Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways on ‘Star Wars: Episode IX.’ Colin has been a wonderful collaborator throughout the development process but we have all come to the conclusion that our visions for the project differ. We wish Colin the best and will be sharing more information about the film soon.”

OK, Lucasfilm and Disney — what are you really looking for in these films? Do you truly want a different approach than the formula fans are used to? I mean, it feels like Disney is strangling the creative life out of their directors.

It’s just sad to see such a beloved franchise go through recent turmoil with important projects.

Episode IX is expected to release in North America on May 24, 2019.
