THERE ARE TWO CONSPIRACY THEORIES.
Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World) was fired as director of Star Wars: Episode IX. Lucasfilm explains that it was because of creative differences. However, there is some talk in the Hollywood circles that there are two possible reasons why the new big-shot filmmaker was let go.
One. Trevorrow’s third big studio film “The Book of Henry” was a hot mess. Although the comedy-drama was well-directed, the movie’s story was illogical and it had weak characterization. It received generally negative reviews. Star Wars fans expressed their worries on social media and probably made Lucasfilm consider their choice.
Two. In addition that Trevorrow has been submitting sub-par scripts of Episode IX, a classified Star Wars insider says that Trevorrow is difficult to work with. Yes, it seems that the success of “Jurassic World” has definitely gone to his head and has been affecting his relationship with his crew and the big chiefs at Lucasfilm, especially head honcho Kathleen Kennedy.
For the record, Trevorrow is the fourth director to get fired by Lucasfilm. Anyone notices that all of them are just blockbuster directors who are still relatively new in the business?
