Colin Trevorrow, who missed out on directing this December’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, will donate his residuals to charity.
Originally announced to direct Star Wars Episode IX shortly after Jurassic World vastly exceeded studio expectations, Colin Trevorrow was ultimately dismissed by Lucasfilm after story rewrites (necessitated following the death of Carrie Fisher) proved to be unsatisfactory. J. J. Abrams returned to the director’s chair and instead crafted a story that implemented elements of Colin Trevorrow’s intended Star Wars story, but completely overhauled others. Because of this, Colin Trevorrow is still credited as a story writer for The Rise of Skywalker, and is getting money accordingly.
But he won’t be spending his small fortune gained from his work on The Rise of Skywalker, along with the subsequent residuals that he’ll receive; instead, he’s opting to donate his Star Wars money to charity. Per Deadline, Colin Trevorrow has decided to donate the money he has earned toward the Alexander Devine Hospice to help elderly family members pass on in peace. Colin Trevorrow explained this decision in the following statement:
“Through his films, George Lucas taught us about our connection to all living things. He taught us to take care of one another, and he set a powerful example himself. The Alexander Devine Hospice helps families in the most challenging of times. I can’t think of a more fitting way to honor George’s legacy.”
With The Rise of Skywalker looking likely to be one of this season’s biggest hits, that’s quite a bit of money that the hospice care will receive. The Light Side of the Force is strong with Colin Trevorrow.
Directed by J. J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, Keri Russell, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Ian McDiarmid, and Billy Dee Williams. Carrie Fisher will also appear as General Leia Organa through the use of previously unreleased footage shot from previous Star Wars films.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is set to hit theaters on December 20, 2019.
New ‘Titans’ Photos Show Off Aqualad And The Original Team
DC Universe has released eight brand new images from the upcoming fourth episode of the second season of Titans entitled, "Aqualad".
"Aqualad" will explore the dynamic among Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Donna Troy/Wonder Girl (Conor Leslie), Hank Hall/Hawk (Alan Ritchson), Dawn Granger/Dove (Minka Kelly) and Garth/Aqualad (Drew Van Acker) and how four years prior, their tight-knit family dynamic developed only to have their personal feelings bleed more into their work only to be exacerbated by the arrival of a new villain.
These new images give fans a new look at Drew Van Acker as Aqualad as well as a couple of new looks at the original team united together for action. In particular, we get our best look at how the Aqualad suit translates onscreen in live-action form.

In Season 2, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business. And as this family of old and new Titans – including Conner Kent and Rose Wilson – learn to co-exist, the arrival of Deathstroke brings to light the sins of the old Titans which threaten to tear this new Titans family apart once more.
The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Robin/Nightwing, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Ryan Potter as Beast Boy.
