Galactic News: Kathleen Kennedy Explains Colin Trevorrow's Star Wars Departure

Posted By themoviesleuth 1653 days ago on Entertainment - Over the last few years, Star Wars has seen its share of problems. From a fan base that's continually at war with itself to several directors either being removed or leaving their assigned projects, the massive franchise has not been safe from turmoil.When The Rise of Skywalker was initially in development, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow was slated to helm the feature. As it got closer to development, he was taken off the project. While there are numerous stories that have been all over the internet, Kathleen Kennedy has now made a statement regarding why he didn't direct the final movie in the Skywalker saga:"Colin was at a huge disadvantage not having been a part of Force Awakens and in part of those early conversations because we had a general sense of where the story was going. Like any development process, it was only in the development that we’re looking at a first draft and realizing that it was perhaps heading in a direction that many of us didn’t feel was really quite where we wanted it to go.We were on a schedule, as we often are with these movies, and had to make a tough decision as to whether or not we thought we could get there in the time or not. And as I said, Colin was at a disadvantage because he hadn’t been immersed in everything that we all had starting out with Episode VII.”
