About a year ago, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow went on a Jurassic Park-themed podcast and talked about Universal’s plans to make his film the first in a trilogy of movies about dinosaur-induced mayhem. And while nothing really seemed to indicate that the creative team had switched gears since then, today we did finally get confirmation that a Jurassic World trilogy is still the plan going forward.

Despite lukewarm reviews, Jurassic World made more than enough bank at the box office to guarantee a sequel. Universal recently set a 2018 release date for Jurassic World 2, with The Impossible director Juan Antonio Bayona taking over for Colin Trevorrow, who will still work on the screenplay with co-writer Derek Connolly. With just under two years until the next installment in the franchise hits theaters, we’ve been wondering when Bayona & Co. might get to work, and according to a new rumor, it won’t be long from now.

Just last week a fun little rumor popped up suggesting that indie director and animator Emily Carmichael had met with Marvel about their Captain Marvel solo film. While we wait to see if there’s any truth to that rumor, Carmichael has lined up another major studio project, teaming with Steven Spielberg and Amblin for Powerhouse, a new action flick based on a story by Colin Trevorrow.

We’ve been anxiously waiting for Ava DuVernay to select her next feature film project, and although she passed on Marvel’s Black Panther, the Selma director has remained very busy executive producing, writing and directing the TV series Queen Sugar for Oprah Winfrey’s network — not to mention acquiring films for her ARRAY distribution banner. It looks as though DuVerna may be close to selecting her next feature directing project, as she’s reportedly being courted for not one, but two upcoming sci-fi projects.

Just recently, Star Wars: Episode 9 director Colin Trevorrow attracted some attention when he said that he wanted to shoot the finale of the current Star Wars trilogy on film rather than digital. But, what’s more interesting perhaps, isn’t what he wants to shoot it with, but where he wants to shoot it. Namely, in outer space.

In the ongoing battle between film and digital (Film v Digital: Dawn of Justice), there’s one man who will not capitulate to your contemporary technology. Joining the likes of Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder, Colin Trevorrow will also remain committed to shooting on film, as the director says he will shoot Star Wars: Episode IX on the classic format instead of digital.

One of the biggest questions we’re left with at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is who are Rey’s parents? There are a few popular theories floating around online, and while we’ll have to wait until Episode 8 or maybe even Episode 9 to get that answer, Colin Trevorrow promises that we won’t be disappointed when Rey’s lineage is revealed.

Earlier this month a group of enterprising Star Wars fans started an online petition to … wait, where are you going? I know, I know, it’s the same tired old tale of bemoaned fans trying to rally together to raise support for a fruitless cause, but stay with me. So these Star Wars fans got together and created a Change.org petition all with the purpose of getting Colin Trevorrow booted from his position behind the camera on Star Wars: Episode IX in favor of George Lucas. This will never in a million years ever happen, but that’s not why this is notable. It’s notable because this petition, which almost 25,000 people have signed, got back to Trevorrow himself, who was forced to comment on it in the most awkward of fashions.

And in other, more humorous Star Wars news…Many fans were a bit disappointed with Lucasfilm’s decision to hire Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow to helm Episode 9, but perhaps starting a petition to have George Lucas replace him on the final film in the new trilogy is taking things a little too far. This is what you might call a severe overreaction.
