Colin Trevorrow no longer directing 'Star Wars Episode IX'

That news came just weeks after Phil Lord and Chris Miller departed the Han Solo spin-off film, which was already deep into production, only to be replaced by Ron Howard.

In golf terms, this is like shooting par for 16 holes, then walking onto the tee at 17, lighting your clubs on fire, selecting a new caddy, driving to an entirely different golf club and beginning to play soccer.

Nothing has been officially confirmed just yet, but with Johnson having recently tweeted that, "I'd do another Star Wars movie in a heartbeat", we'd imagine it's only a matter of time. However, it means the search is on for a new director for Star Wars: Episode IX.

Colin Trevorrow is no longer directing "Star Wars: Episode IX".

Arena himself admitted as much. "I was thinking we might have an early vacation at the end of this year", he said. As ugly as the first half was for the USA , the second half provided some signs of promise.

Taken from the Topps Star Wars Trader card series (via Comicbook), this new image of Supreme Leader Snoke doesn't feature Snoke as one of the side characters of The Last Jedi but instead as one of the film's main characters. Rogue One introduced fans to Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), the film's lead character, who led a group of Rebels to steal the plans for the Death Star. Based on how that film ended, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that Luke Skywalker's role and presence in the film is one of the biggest things fans are excited to see, especially following The Last Jedi teaser trailer, which hinted at a much darker version of Luke than fans had ever encountered before. Lucasfilm took a hard pass.

Rian Johnson opens up about the origins of the Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi title and why Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker is the recipient of that moniker at the beginning of the film. And in 2015, the company fired director Josh Trank from work on another Star Wars spinoff.

Trevorrow was named director after scoring a box office hit in 2015 with a reboot of dinosaur movie "Jurassic World".

"Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways", a statement posted on Star Wars.com said. Now, of course, there's rampant speculation about who will take over behind the camera, why Trevorrow was sacked, and what this means for the franchise. If Spielberg signed on, it could theoretically push Indiana Jones 5 back far enough for everyone to realize what a hot mess that is.
