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.
Jacob Tremblay, currently earning rave reviews for his performance alongside Brie Larson in Room, is currently filming Book of Henry, the next movie from Jurassic World director Colin Trevorror, who just so happens to be directing Star Wars: Episode 9. This is not lost on Tremblay who, by his own admission, is a huge Star Wars fan and has said that if he wasn’t an actor, he’d want to be a Jedi (aww).
Every single human being with access to a movie theater saw Jurassic World this summer, making it the highest grossing film of all time not directed by James Cameron (aka, the third highest grossing film of all time). A sequel was inevitable. But how about a trilogy? Because director Colin Trevorrow says that he always had a three-movie arc in mind. Now, $1.6 billion later, he’s able to start talking about it like a real thing that will actually happen and not some crazy plan.
We’re just a few months away from a new era of Star Wars, and while The Force Awakens has yet to hit theaters, Lucasfilm is already preparing for Episode 8 and Episode 9. Rian Johnson is in pre-production on the former, which begins filming next bring, while recently confirmed director Colin Trevorrow has revealed that he’s begun preparing for production on the latter — yes, already.
Jurassic World doesn’t arrive on DVD and Blu-ray for another couple of months, but the film is back on IMAX screens this weekend, in case you’re eager to revisit this summer’s biggest blockbuster. And if the re-release isn’t enough for you, Universal has revealed eight behind the scenes featurettes from the upcoming Blu-ray.
When Colin Trevorrow was confirmed to direct Star Wars: Episode 9, there were some divisive reactions to that news. Although Jurassic World quickly became one of the highest-grossing films of all time, many felt as though Trevorrow’s blockbuster sequel was deeply flawed — why should he get the Star Wars gig? And better yet: why are only men directing these films, or just blockbusters in general? Trevorrow himself has some thoughts about the lack of women directing blockbusters, and while he means well, he’s a bit off.
During Comic-Con, a rumor began circulating that Colin Trevorrow was attached to direct Star Wars: Episode 9. The convention came and went without Disney and Lucasfilm acknowledging the rumor, but during today’s live-action presentation at D23, the studios made formally announced the Jurassic World director to helm the final chapter in the new Star Wars trilogy.
Imagine the most inhospitable landscape in the entire universe. A desolate place of horror, pain, and misery. This is Planet Zero.
