J.J. Abrams To Helm Star Wars: Episode IX

Sometimes you just have to go with what you know. Or in this case, “who” you know.
 
Star Wars: Episode IX will find a familiar face in the directors chair in J.J. Abrams. Abrams, who also directed ‘The Force Awakens’, has been brought in to fill the spot vacated by Colin Trevorrow, who was relieved of his role due to differing visions for the project that Trevorrow had from Lucasfilms.

“With The Force Awakens, J.J. delivered everything we could have possibly hoped for, and I am so excited that he is coming back to close out this trilogy,” said Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy in a press release confirming the news.
 
When Trevorrow left the project one week ago, the studio released a statement saying “our visions for the project differ,” something that was already clear when Lucasfilm hired Jack Thorne to rewrite the script in August. By bringing back Abrams, Lucasfilm now have a director who has proven success within the Star Wars universe and who provided a smooth filming process the first time around.
