Trevorrow is out as director of Star Wars: Episode IX. There have been rumours about him and Kennedy not getting along very well for a few weeks, so it is not a big surprise. With so many Star Wars movies having troubles (massive reshoots, directors replaced during the shoot, and so on) I wonder when will Disney step in and force choke Kennedy out of the way.
I don't know what the original Rogue One would have looked like, but I heard Kennedy ordered massive reshoots. And it came out fine. So I'll trust her instincts until it bears rotten fruit.
She got rid of Lord and Miller for the Han Solo movie. Which is mind boggling, b/c they are some of the hottest directors working. But the proof's in the pudding, and if it comes out fine, then that was the right call.
Also, I don't have a high opinion of Colin Treverrow. Jurassic World sucked.
