By Muuka Muyumba

D23 brought more Star Wars news today, as Disney chairman Alan Horn announced  that Colin Trevorrow will direct the last film of the “third trilogy”, Episode IX, which is set for release in 2019.

Trevorrow states “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.”

Trevorrow’s profile went skyhigh this year after he directed Universal’s Jurassic World to the 3rd highest worldwide grossing film of all time. His first feature, Safety Not Guaranteed, was a modest independent film success, but it was loved by the right people and propelled Trevorrow onto the shortlist for many franchise films.

Trevorrow now heads into the Star Wars world, which we had noted in an earlier scoop from El Mayimbe.
