Colin Trevorrow is no longer directing Star Wars: Episode IX.

Lucasfilm and Disney announced the exit Tuesday:

"Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways on Star Wars: Episode IX. Colin has been a wonderful collaborator throughout the development process but we have all come to the conclusion that our visions for the project differ. We wish Colin the best and will be sharing more information about the film soon," read a Lucasfilm statement on Star Wars official site. 

This is the latest director shakeup on a Lucasfilm title. In June, Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired from the Star Wars Han Solo standalone with only a couple of weeks left of scheduled production. The two were later replaced by Ron Howard, who is finishing out production of the project in London now.
