That is one of the things I hated about the prequels. I’m all up for redemption and everything, but when you slaughter a school full of kids, I don’t think you get to come back from that.

Colin Trevorrow Defends ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ Directing Gig After ‘Book of Henry’ Reviews

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/colin-trevorrow-defends-star-wars-episode-ix-directing-gig-book-henry-reviews-1021534

“Not only did I grow up on these stories, like all of us did, [but] I think that the values of Star Wars are values that I hold very close and very dear in my life. I feel that the message of the way that the Force teaches you to treat other people and show respect for others, and the way it guides you through life, is really important to me. And I hope everybody would realize that that set of stories has affected me as deeply in my life as it has affected them.

I think the challenge for me is to recognize that everyone has their own personal relationship with these stories, and it’s different depending on who you are. And I need to make a film that you’ll appreciate, even if your experience with it was different, which is making something that will be deeply emotionally resonant and satisfying for people all around the world. And I think about it a lot.”

“There tends to be a lot of assumptions made about control, but the reality is, it’s a collaboration. It’s not me locked in a room with the producers trying to get in and me saying, ‘I’m making my decisions!’ It is a much more collaborative process. I think that except for very, very rare circumstances, there is no such thing as final cut anymore.

And I think the best-case scenario for any film is that the producer and the writer and the director are all on the same page and making the same movie. I’ve been fortunate enough in all the films that I’ve made so far that we haven’t had internal conflicts, as far as the movie that we were making. That can happen, and I know that’s frustrating for all involved when it does That’s not a situation I’m involved in.”

“Kathy is someone who has been a mentor my entire life, but I didn’t know it until I started working with her, and I saw how much of her soul and of her storytelling skill and her ability to read into the humanity of an individual goes into the films that she makes and how much of what I’ve loved about so many of those films came from her,” he said. “It’s something that I learn more about everyday. At this moment, she is really my key collaborator in what I’m doing, along with a group that she has built of incredible thinkers and storytellers. It’s going to certainly result in a movie very different from any that I’ve ever made because it’s not just me. It’s a group of people who deeply care about it.”

The director also explained that he travels as much as possible so he can absorb the experiences of people around the world to guide his filmmaking. “I make a lot of my choices not just [based] on what I want to see, but what I know my son and my daughter want to see and what other people I meet will want to see,” he said. “I’m always listening.”

The trailer was great, but just like The ForcecAwakens, the behind the scenes video got me more excited than anything. I can’t stop watching it. What a great time to be a Star Wars fan!

What SE changes (if any) did people like?
Time

When I watch the despecialized I don’t see anything at all wrong. I never would have changed a thing. If Lucas were a better filmmaker he would have concentrated on making more movies instead of fiddling with the past. He wasn’t even confident enough to write the prequels without R2 and 3PO wedged in and ruining continuity.
I love the guy for creating the best movie universe ever, but I’m also frustrated at what he did to it later on.
Then he whined and said he wanted to make experimental cinema verite. Well you had more money than any other independent filmmaker ever. What was stopping you?

When Did The Star Wars Prequels Become Cool?
Time

When I was a kid playing with Star Wars toys, I would imagine scenes like the space battle in Rogue One and Vader’s corridor scene. I certainly didn’t imagine a mentally challenged fish person stepping in poop, senate trade negotiations, or awkward romantic dialogue.

People forgot Woody was in a long running sitcom about a Boston bar already? And a little Oliver Stone movie called Natural Born Killers?

I loved him in Zombieland and No Country for Old Men.

Maz is also the same character who glossed over the magical reappearance of a lightsaber that would have disintegrated in a gas giant (Bespin) within seconds of falling into it at the climax of ESB, so her word is hardly worth a Gungan’s foot.

Well she did say it was “a good question, for another time.” Sorry she didn’t get verbose in the middle of a First Order attack. The reappearance wasn’t magical at all. She said she had it for ages and kept it locked away. We don’t know how, when, or where she got it, and it is probably silly to debate the properties of gas giants in a fantasy movie with lightsabers and hyperdrives.
