Original ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Director Will Get Story Credit

Original Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker director Colin Trevorrow will get a shared story credit for the film.

Set to hit cinemas in just over a month, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is nearly complete, with the final product’s writing credits revealed by Collider. If you remember, back in 2015, Colin Trevorrow was announced as the director for the then-untitled Star Wars: Episode IX hot off the heels of his success with Jurassic World. However, in 2017, Colin Trevorrow and his co-writer Derek Connolly left the final film in the Skywalker saga after creative differences.

Promptly afterwards, J.J Abrams was announced as the director for The Rise of Skywalker, bringing on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice scribe Chris Terrio with him. Now, it has been announced that the Writers Guild of America will be giving Colin Trevorrow and his co-writer Derek Connolly “story by” credits along side J.J Abrams and Chris Terrio for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

The final screenplay credits for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will exclusively go to J.J Abrams and Chris Terrio. Colin Trevorrow getting a “story by” credit means that at least some of his original vision has transferred over to the final product that fans will get to witness in December. It’ll be interesting to know which ideas of Colin Trevorrow were used in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, considering J.J Abrams previously stated that he’d be starting over.
