Sep 6, 2017

With a short and sweet statement on, Lucasfilm again rocked the Star Wars fandom with the announcement that they were parting ways with Colin Trevorrow, the director and co-writer of Star Wars Episode IX. This one came as a surprise - there'd been no inside sources claiming anything was wrong prior to the announcement. (The foofaraw over Trevorrow's flop with "The Book of Henry" was essentially muck-raking - people trying to start trouble where no trouble had been reported.) Today, I'm talking about what the Hollywood trades are saying about the move, and what's going to happen next. Punch it!
