Star Wars 9 to be Directed by Colin Trevorrow?

It is being reported that Jurassic World‘s Director, Colin Trevorrow, is rumored to be the Director for Star Wars Episode 9.

From ScreenRant,

“Heroic Hollywood is reporting that Lucasfilm will announce Trevorrow as the director of Star Wars: Episode IX during the Lucasfilm panel at the 2015 Comic-Con International in San Diego. If true, Trevorrow will follow directors J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson, who are handling directing duties on Episodes VII and VIII, respectively. At this point, little is known about Episode IX, though it is expected to round out the next Star Wars trilogy and be released in 2019.”

With the extreme success of Jurassic World and would makes sense, if true, that Lucasfilm would have confidence in appointing Trevorrow to the helm of the film.
