    Colin Trevorrow: "It's kind of that creative socialism that you would dream would happen. [Laughs] Where I am surrounded by people who are brilliant and all have PhDs in Star Wars and able to engage in some really challenging questions we're asking each other - not just about what happens, but about why (emphasis his) it happens and what does this all mean and why was Star Wars? Kathy Kennedy and Michelle Rejwan who is my creative producer and Kiri Hart and her whole story group are really the main people that I interface with but then there's Rian [Johnson] and J. J. [Abrams] who are also involved and Lawrence Kasdan - theses are names that give you a certain amount of confidence - the story we're telling has been vetted - it's extreme vetting! [Laughs]" (June 15, 2017)

    Colin Trevorrow: "I now have Jacob Tremblay to deal with when it comes to requests." "It's funny - there's a photo that they hand out for The Book of Henry to press and it's Jacob and I sitting on the steps and he's wearing like a little magic outfit and we're talking and we look like we're talking about the characters and I remember the conversation. We were talking about Anakin's fear of loss and what drove him to the dark side." (June 15, 2017)

    I have to wonder if there's any update on the Jacob Tremblay potentially appearing in EIX. I feel like it was rumored at one point.

    i dont think he will be in IX. Mark is there simply ebcause he is in IX and colin is directing it. Also, i doubt he would be in the movie due to his age.

    i think that he would be too young to be anyone's family in IX and/or even a jedi unless there is a time jump

    Surprise! He's probably not going anywhere, and fans were making too much of a big deal over this.

    At the very worst, I think they'd get someone to help supervise the reshoots alongside the director if there were real issues with the movie.

    Lucasfilm won't let any of their new SW films be less than passable.

    The kind of thinking that more Hollywood studios need to have.

    Don't want to sound super pessimistic, but I think it's possible that Trevorrow and Connolly didn't meet the challenge. Even if the reason behind this rewrite is Carrie's death, it's weird that another writer was brought in. As for the guy himself - I don't know his work and... I don't like that. I would expect someone with a more impressive resume to work on IX.

    On a side note - to me a story like this is yet another testament to Rian Johnson's skills... One guy writing and directing, no meddling, zero production problems...

    I can't say i'm excited with the news of jack thorne joining the writing team.
    Read the screenplay of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child....it was a mess, story wise....

    But ah well won't judge the movie beforehand :)
