Star Wars Episode IX

Wed Sep 06, 2017 9:11 am

News coming out of Hollywood this morning is that Disney has parted ways with Colin Trevorrow who was signed to direct Star Wars Episode IX.

Trevorrow is probably best known to us for directing the Jurassic World reboot movie a couple of years ago.  While that was a fun action movie - it was very thin on plot and high on action.  I know that there was concern by Star Wars fans when he was first announced that he didn't have a good grasp of character development and story - so maybe this is something Disney have identified too.

Anyway - here is the news story over at The Daily Mail:

DLR: 2005, 2006, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015

I haven't read too many comments that are upset by this news. I actually didn't mind Jurassic World though, it was meant to be people being chased by dinosaurs rather than a cerebral thought provoking movie. 

But i guess Star Wars movies are dissected to the Nth degree so it needs something more than flash to be a success.

I'm going to be trying to avoid spoilers like crazy for this one so i hope they are as good with their advertising as they were for the last one.

Star Wars was never something I was interested in but with all the new lands at the parks I've decided it's time to get on board.  I've started watching Episode 1 and so far so good - my brother did say to skip Eps 1-3 so I'm thinking if I'm enjoying this one then it can only get better when I hit the original 3.  Hopefully by the time Ep 9 hits the cinemas I'll be lined up with other Star Wars fans.
