Star Wars fans are not thrilled about the prospect of Jurassic World's Colin Trevorrow directing Episode 9. In fact, as per an online petition, some of them feel that the original trilogy director George Lucas should be brought back to helm the new film.
Trevorrow recently spoke about this matter and seemed quite confident about getting involved with this phenomenal film franchise.
"It's funny, I saw that [Change.org petition], and it was on a day where I was at LucasFilm giving this big speech to everyone about how we want to channel the invention and just the raw creativity and the boldness that George brought to these films and not being afraid that we're going to embarrass ourselves by doing something that might be crazy," Trevorrow told Entertainment Tonight this past weekend.
"When George Lucas made Star Wars, a lot of people thought it was crazy. When you try to pitch what that movie's about -- if you've never heard of Star Wars before, you say, 'Here's a character. His father's part robot, but he can also do magic. And there's a guy who can fly in a spaceship. He's got a dog for a friend!' -- it sounds insane. But it's the greatest story ever told. I just want to embrace that kind of invention and creativity that he brought to it."
The Trevorrow-helmed Jurassic World broke several box office records in 2015, despite being hailed as a rather silly reboot/sequel of Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park. Fans believe the same might become of the Star Wars franchise if Trevorrow directs Episode 9.
