There are reports that Colin Trevorrow asked Rian Johnson to shoot one particular scene in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” for him. However, it is not yet revealed if this sequence will be used for “Star Wars: Episode 9” or a teaser from the ninth movie that will be seen in the film’s eighth episode.

On MTV’s “Happy Sad Confused” podcast, the ninth film’s co-writer and director revealed that he is asking Johnson the same way the latter requested J.J. Abrams to do a little change in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” This is said to be related to the events of the trilogy’s last movie that presumed to be about General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher).

The directors’ working relationship

Rian Johnson has asked J.J. Abrams to assure that R2-D2 would be with Rey (Daisy Ridley) when she met Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) on Ahch-To in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” This is to make way for something he is about to do in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

Colin Trevorrow, on the other hand, explained that what he requested is not really an adjustment. In fact, it is just an extra scene while they are still filming in this one particular place.

Of course, Johnson agreed. According to Comic Book, this is just an example of a good working relationship with the different directors in movie sequels. The 40-year-old screenwriter even described it to be “very rewarding and purposely vague.”

The requested scene

Moreover, it is not yet revealed what Colin Trevorrow asked Rian Johnson for “Star Wars: Episode 9.”

However, some assumed that it is about General Leia Organa.

It has been known that Carrie Fisher died because of cardiac arrest in December 2016, thus she might not be seen in the movie’s next installment. This, too, made the people behind the film to think of another way how to feature the iconic actress’ disappearance in the movie. To recall, the Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy already said that the mother of Billie Lourd won’t be seen in the ninth film using CGI.

Fans afraid of his directorial stint in ‘Episode 9’

Moreover, Colin Trevorrow’s latest directorial film “The Book of Henry” has been receiving poor ratings and being beaten by a lot of critics. In fact, the film got 24 percent on Rotten Tomatoes as of this writing.

But, it looks like he just didn’t mind it at all. He even tweeted a quote, saying he is still proud of what he does. “Be proud of everything you paint, even if Mom doesn’t put it on the fridge,” he wrote on Twitter.

However, “Star Wars” fans seem a little bit worried for his directorial stint in “Star Wars: Episode 9.” In fact, some even asked if he could still be replaced.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi” will be released on Dec. 15 while “Star Wars: Episode 9” will be out on May 24, 2019.
