STAR WARS: Colin Trevorrow Weighs In On Possibly Returning To The Franchise After EPISODE IX Firing

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow was originally attached to helm Star Wars Episode IX, but would he consider returning to the franchise after being fired by Lucasfilm? Check out his comments here!

After helming the record-breaking Jurassic World, it made perfect sense for Colin Trevorrow to be tasked with directing Star Wars Episode IX. However, "creative differences" would lead to the filmmaker being dismissed from the project, and just a couple of months later, J.J. Abrams was brought on board to helm the critically panned The Rise of Skywalker

Story details and concept art for Trevorrow's Duel of the Fates eventually leaked online, with the vast majority of Star Wars fans agreeing that his planned finale looked better than what Abrams' and Justice League writer Chris Terrio dreamed up. 

During a recent interview with the Jurassic World Dominion director, ComicBook.com asked Trevorrow if he would consider returning to the franchise after his firing. Fans probably wouldn't be against the idea, but Trevorrow seems unsure about heading back to that Galaxy Far, Far Away.

"I don't know," Trevorrow said. "Not because of Star Wars, but because I've spent 8 or 9 [years] making new versions of the things we love when we were kids. You know? In one place or another. There's not just a lot of pressure on that, but it also casts a shadow over everything else that you want to do."

"I made a small film after Jurassic World, and I was the 'Director of Star Wars' when I made it," the filmmaker added. "And I think to be able to step out of that a little bit and not having everything I do be in the context of our belief systems is interesting to me."

Next up for Trevorrow is War Magician, a movie about British illusionist Jasper Maskelyne. He used magic to help defeat the Nazis during World War II, and Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness) is attached to star. It doesn't currently have a release date, however. 

As for Star Wars, we're betting that the director is no more interested in working for Lucasfilm again than fired Solo: A Star Wars Story helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
