Colin Trevorrow has confirmed that the reported title for his version of Star Wars: Episode IX is accurate.

Jurassic World helmer Colin Trevorrow was originally tapped to co-write and direct the ninth chapter of the main Star Wars series, which would serve as the conclusion to the Skywalker saga launched by George Lucas in 1977. However, creative differences resulted in Lucasfilm parting ways with Colin Trevorrow and recruiting Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J. J. Abrams to close out the sequel trilogy.

While Colin Trevorrow and his frequent writing partner Derek Connolly retained a story credit for The Rise of Skywalker, it appears much of their original vision for Episode IX was reworked after Abrams joined the project. However, script information and concept art from Colin Trevorrow’s Star Wars: Episode IX has surfaced, including a rumored title for the filmmaker’s take on the story. Earlier this week, Colin Trevorrow took to his official Twitter account to confirm that his title for the ninth entry in Skywalker saga was Star Wars: Duel of the Fates, which shares the name of a famous John Williams musical piece for The Phantom Menace.
