    I wonder what the chances are that CT wrote his story treatment/script for EPIX before certain decisions were made regarding TLJ?

    Movie making is a ongoing, evolving process. Major plot points are often changed at the very last minute.

    Even George did this with the OT. Constantly.

    Not to mention, there is always an amount of secrecy involving reveals in the production of SW movies.

    So I've been considering a few things...

    What if the decision to kill off Luke Skywalker was actually made rather late into the production? Last minute, so to speak...

    We still do not know exactly when that decision was actually made during the production process.

    If it was made last minute, CT would've obviously had already written a story based off Luke being alive still... which would have needed to be completely reworked because of this. He could've simply disagreed with the choice, and/or been unwilling to play in such a sandbox. It really doesn't need to be any more complicated than that. I doubt he was "fired" either... sounds like total click-bait. Much more likely that they agreed to part ways.

    As much as I would still like to see CT direct a SW movie, I feel he is one of the SW fans that was not very happy with Luke dying at the end of TLJ.

    Not to say he had a problem with him dying per se, just with it being at that particular moment. Having Luke walk into a twin sunset at the end of EPIX, never to be seen again... actually becoming a "Living Legend" for all eternity seems like not only a very fitting way to end his arc, but also something CT would've preferred for the character.

    All pure speculation, of course! Good times, nonetheless!

    On a side note, I think Colin Trevorrow should really direct a SW movie set in the prequel era, particularly during the Clone Wars. His style of storytelling would be best suited for that, in my opinion. He would handle the action and visuals masterfully. He really nailed that part of Jurassic World. Plus I would love to see him directing Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christiansen together! Natalie Portman as well! Samuel L. Jackson too! Heck, all the prequel actors!

    Whatever the truth maybe, I would bet money on it trevorrow wanted luke alive for 9, his tweet where he has a dig at disney is pretty telling.
    I was one of the strongest naysayers of trevorrow and never particularly keen on rian.
    I thought trevorrow was a terrible choice with rian being safe but not my cup of tea.
    I never would have guessed that rian would actually turn out the worst starwars movie to date and in the process almost extinguish my love for the series.

    I'm a little confused how to answer this. I would rather have seen Luke and Snoke alive in IX, but even as someone who disliked VII, I don't think there's any question that Abrams is a better director than Treverrow. I think bringing Abrams back is a positive, but I dislike the story decisions that were seemingly mostly made by Rian Johnson and Kathleen Kennedy.

    He was probably fired for wanting them to make TLJ a good movie so he would have something to work with.
