He did a great job with Jurassic World, so I'm pumped about this.

I wasn't a huge fan of JW but I think he showed a lot of potential and with a good script he can do a good job

I really enjoyed Safety Not Guaranteed.

And Jurassic World obviously succeeded at what it was going for.

This should be one heck of a trilogy.

Also Colin's career went from indie no name to the envy of Hollywood within a couple months.

They could not have gone blander than Trevorrow.

It's not really surprising, considering he was one name they were already circling around.

Yeah I'm fine with this. Safety was great, JW was enjoyable. I think he has talent. They seemed to make it clear Rian was writing and directing VIII but just said Colin was "directing" IX. So that may help him out quite a bit.

I think he's perfect to copy George Lucas' manner, since he has no vision of his own. Whatsoever.

I wasn't that impressed by Jurassic World, but I think he showed some promise. Perhaps with better material to work with.

That's what I think. I think he has talent, but his writing may not be as up to par. So I'm intrigued they did not say he was writing IX. Just directing.

Now I've ripped on the PT probably more than anyone and have pointed out George's flaws for thousands of posts over the years. But...the man has vision. May not always execute it well (the PT), but the original SW is one of the most visually iconic films of all time. Saying that is just disingenuous.

Colin is a better director than Marquand so at the very least the IX should have better direction. With a good writer and a helpful crew not made up of sycophants, I think IX could cap this trilogy off on a strong note.

Very much agreed. I wonder if Kasdan is going to jump on with IX?

Reading to the press release it is pretty clear that he's not writing it though. It mentions that he is a writer and director but then afterwards just says directing IX. That and Bob indicates that Rian is directing and writing VIII. But just says Colin is directing IX.

Yeah people are overreacting. Trevorrow is a good director with an excellent instinct for action scenes and nostalgia. He obviously has a tremendous amount of respect for the material. I'm sure he'll do fine.

The thing with Trevorrow is that he knows how to put a film together and make it entertaining, but he's not exactly the type of guy that will blow people away. He'll do fine, but i kind of hoped for a more insipired choice like Duncan Jones, Alfonso Cuaron or Matt Reeves.

If they wanted a safe choice, i kinda wish they had gone with Brad Bird, i think his style would fit Star Wars like a glove.
