People really need to watch Safety Not Guaranteed and stop judging Trevorrow solely on Jurassic World.

Safety Not Guaranteed doesn't mean he can make a million dollar blockbusters. He's judged off of JW because that was his opportunity.

Safety Not Guaranteed was good, but hardly in the same ballpark as Star Wars. Jurassic World was all kinds of terrible.

I'm really worried. Hopefully Kasdan will be involved somehow.

Well Jurassic World was the highest grossing movie of all time that wasn't a James Cameron movie. It was inevitable Disney was going to go for him.

Also it's clear Disney likes to generally go for minimally proven, no name directors(probably because they can easier be controlled. Look what happened with Edgar Wright and Whedon). Trevorrow was right up Disney's alley.

Far too much pessimism and cynicism floating around in this thread LucasFilm and Trevorrow have my trust, I am excited to see what he and Johnson will do with the franchise now that J.J has laid out all the groundwork.

I'll give him a chance. Who knows? History may record that Episode IX was his magnum opus. If not, there will be ample time to vilify him after everyone has actually seen the movie.

Re: Star Wars Episode IX (May 24, 2019)

TFA was a solid 7-7.5 it wasn't a bad movie, it was a pretty good movie but it wasn't great. Everyone I know who has seen it has already forgot about it. TFA had a lot of flaws in logic, acting and plot. The story was pretty much a ripoff of Episode 4 without the magic. TFA is overhyped and as time goes on people will see it, the excitement of it not outright sucking has put people on cloud 9. Now I'll wait to judge fully until all three movies have come out but the TFA is pretty weak on it's own. If Episode 4 and TFA were both stand alone films, TFA would fail in comparison even though Episode 4 is pretty camp. So I'm with Skippy on this.

The next two movies are going to be a big tell, if they continue the formula of borrowing from the OT and putting in nothing new and Rey is still a mary sue, we'll see the opinions on this movie change drastically. As many faults as Lucas had he always included new tech, new things to expand the universe. Will Disney do the same? Or will they keep making this a nostalgia trilogy with iconic scenes borrowed from other movies?

'Star Wars' Braintrust Sets Meeting to Plot Leia's Life After Carrie Fisher's Death

Carrie Fisher's Dec. 27 death has left a disturbance in the Force. Her iconic Princess Leia is set to appear in the next two Star Wars films, and insiders tell The Hollywood Reporter that at least two key scenes are planned for Episode VIII (Dec. 15) and Episode IX (2019):
Spoiler for spoiler for Episode VIII:
a Leia reunion with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and a confrontation with Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), her son who killed Harrison Ford's Han Solo in 2015's The Force Awakens.

Details of where those scenes fit into the movies remain unclear, but insiders say Leia was to have been a bigger part of Episode IX than VIII. Episode VIII director Rian Johnson has finished shooting, but Episode IX doesn't have a start date; both Force Awakens and Episode VIII began production at the beginning of a year so it is very likely that Episode IX will begin shooting in early 2018 for a December 2019 release. And the status of its script, being written by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, is unknown. (Disney won't comment.)

Trevorrow, the filmmaker behind Jurassic World who is directing Episode IX, is due to arrive in L.A. the week of Jan. 10 for meetings with Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy to discuss options. But unlike in other cases where actors died during the filmmaking process — Paul Walker in Furious 7 comes to mind — it appears that the team has time to explore solutions.

(As well as time to grieve. As one insider puts it, "People are still deeply mourning Carrie's death over there.")

Leia could be written out and her scenes reshot, options not unheard of in the Star Wars universe. Rogue One went through a major overhaul and was met with glowing reviews and blockbuster box office. Episode VIII also went through a major rewrite with Johnson, who had to overhaul his script after he saw the significant changes J.J. Abrams made to the overarching Star Wars story thanks to his extensive postproduction work during Force Awakens. (Johnson had based his script on Force Awakens' earlier drafts.)

Another solution is to use CGI effects; a reduced role could mean Leia would only appear in glimpses. "Rogue One is the road map," says one Star Wars source, referring to Lucasfilm resurrecting Peter Cushing and making Fisher young again in the current hit.

"I have no doubt, given some of the recent work I've seen, there are filmmakers who will be willing to take up the challenge," says Michael Fink, an Oscar-winning VFX supervisor who teaches at USC. But, "so far, we have seen moments of success but not full performances." He says there's also ethics to weigh: "Should we create additional roles for Princess Leia? I don't think so."
