Good news from far off galaxy. J. J. Abrams, man who managed to bring back magic and proper direction to The war of galaxies at its seventh delivery, The awakening of force, it will again be at controls of vast machinery of galactic to ninth part after departure of Colin Trevorrow, director of Jurassic World. Abrams will write script along with Chris Terrio, man who took an Oscar for Argo for best adapted screenplay.
as Well as confirmed president of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, in a statement. "With The awakening of force, J. J. (Abrams) gave us everything we could have wanted, and for that I am very excited with his return to finish this trilogy".
Several sources claim that Kennedy was directly responsible for dismissal of Trevorrow due to conflicts with script. Apparently, film director and friend Steven Spielberg didn't like constant changes and tried to modify it. There came a point in relationship with Kennedy became unsustainable and had to leave project.
it is Not first filmmaker who falls in relation to renewed exploitation of factory-born by George Lucas. Phil Lord and Chris Miller, makers of titles such as Lego movie or Infiltrators in class, lost your job to front of tape dedicated to Han Solo by a similar conflict with Kennedy.

The next, as with Abrams to front, process will begin production in January with may 24, 2019 as target date of premiere. The expectation, now more than ever, returns to be monumental.
