After the massive success of Jurassic World many fans were surprised when Colin Trevorrow announced that he would not return to direct the sequel. Rumors surfaced that the American director was in talks with Disney and Lucasfilm, flaming speculation that the director may have been approached to direct a Star Wars sequel or spin-off. Now, courtesy of Lucasfilm President kathleen Kennedy we can confirm that Trevorrow will be directing Star Wars: Episode IX, the final instalment in the Star Wars Sequel trilogy. Heres what Kennedy and Trevorrow said at the D23 Expo this weekend...

Kathleen Kennedy: "Colin is someone I’ve been interested in working with ever since I saw Safety Not Guaranteed. The power of that film paired with the enormous success of Jurassic World speaks volumes about his abilities both as a storyteller and skilled filmmaker. We are thrilled to have such an incredible talent as Colin join our family and step into the Star Wars universe."

Colin Trevorrow: "This is not a job or an assignment. It is a seat at a campfire, surrounded by an extraordinary group of storytellers, filmmakers, artists and craftspeople. We’ve been charged with telling new stories for a younger generation because they deserve what we all had—a mythology to call their own. We will do this by channeling something George Lucas instilled in all of us: boundless creativity, pure invention and hope."
