I'm glad. Let VIII be and stand on its own terms and let Trevorrow figure it out.

I'm looking forward to Episode 9 and Trevorrow behind it, loved JW. Sorry I know it's the cool thing to hate it But anyway, it's nice to know nothing is being changed with Leia for 8.

Collin I think has great potential. I did not care for Jurassic World at all, but that was a film long in development with lots of hands in the pot. JW to me felt like a film that had too long of a development with many restarts and he held it together as best he could.

I loved Safety and thought it displayed more of his skill. Therefore, I am leaning towards more positive on him. It was not because of the $$$$ that they hired him from my view. Or else you would not have seen Rian, or heck even JJ’s films never made that much prior to TFA. It does not hurt but SW will sell regardless.

What gets me excited though is that his next film The Book of Henry according to the trades has some positive buzz with talks of nominations. So I guess we will see this summer how that goes.

I am glad TLJ will continue as is, and Rian will probably be involved with the re-writes since it still seems from back in the early part of TLJ’s development Rian was said to have been writing IX as well. With the reports of the entire story group getting together figuring out what to do with Leia will not be a one-person job.

Though Bob Iger said that the pitch (story treatment) to him for IX came from Trevorrow, not Rian Johnson.

"The ninth [episode], we just had a pitch from the director because he is just going into preproduction and that comes out in 2019." (September 2016)

Interesting I remember reading in the trades that Johnson was working on it.

I remember those reports too. They were either incorrect or Disney went in another direction.

I loved Safety Not Guaranteed as well, but if his big budget films end up looking like JW, then it's a problem.

All I hope for at this point is that he learned what not to do because of JW. We don't need a million calls backs to the original in every other shot, no poorly written characters, and no annoying child actors.

I think JW had more problems than just him, I think with hopefully his raw talent and Kathy steering the ship it should be good.

I'm really interested to see what The Book of Henry is like.
