The hiring of the director whose Dinosaur hit made over $1.6billion seems to be the latest in a trend that Lucas Film and Disney have set in trusting up and coming directors with massive franchises.

Trevorrow, whose only feature-length credits as director are Safety Not Guaranteed (2012) and Jurassic World (2015), joins JJ Abrams (Episode 7) and Rian Johnson (Episode 8) as a creative leader in the main Star Wars universe moving forward.
