Star Wars: Episode IX director Colin Trevorrow has teased that the upcoming ninth installment to the Skywalker saga will offer fans a satisfying conclusion to the sequel trilogy.
The director who exited the Jurassic World sequel as director in 2015 to direct and write Episode IX with his Jurassic World writing partner Derek Connolly teased the upcoming film while promoting his new film The Book of Henry in an interview with Screen Rant telling the site:
“The process of Star Wars began way back in August of 2015 when I looked at what J.J. and Rian had done and I’m very fortunate that I’m surrounded by some really, really brilliant producers and brilliant creative minds – Kiri Hart and the Lucasfilm story group and my producer [Michelle] Rejwan and Kathy Kennedy and also J.J. and Rian, Larry Kasdan. I mean, these are the best minds available and everybody’s engaged in making sure this is the most satisfying and emotionally resonant conclusion that we can possibly deliver.”
Plot details are still under wraps but Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Adam Driver are all expected to return. Trevorrow and Connolly turned in the draft for the final episode of the sequel trilogy in April, the week before Star Wars Celebration Orlando. President of Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy also revealed in April that a read-through of the script for was on the horizon. Production on the project is scheduled to begin in January of 2018.
