At D23, Walt Disney Studios announced that writer-director Colin Trevorrow will direct Star Wars: Episode IX.
Trevorrow says, “This is not a job or an assignment. It is a seat at a campfire, surrounded by an extraordinary group of storytellers, filmmakers, artists and craftspeople. We’ve been charged with telling new stories for a younger generation because they deserve what we all had—a mythology to call their own. We will do this by channeling something George Lucas instilled in all of us: boundless creativity, pure invention and hope.”
Star Wars: Episode IX will be the final film in the trilogy of Star Wars movies that begins with Star Wars: The Force Awakens on December 18, 2015.
