Colin Trevorrow Responds to Firing on 'Episode IX' and Negative ‘Book of Henry’ Reviews: ‘I Do Stand by the Movie’ and how he was 'Devastated' by reaction

Colin Trevorrow Jurassic World 3

Colin Trevorrow was coming off his own worst nightmare: "The Book of Henry." A sentimental, misguided, confused and jumbled mess of a movie. A horrid mix of genres that never added up. I warned "Star Wars" fans to buckle their seat belts because there would be no end to the disruptors claiming that Trevorrow was not suited for Episode IX's director chair.

Well, soon after, Disney fired the poor guy, when, In all honesty, the mouse house could have probably made any sub-par filmmaker look competent enough, although I'm not saying Trevorrow is incompetent by any stretch of the imagination. The "Star Wars" movies are, after all, creatively controlled by the studio so the creative scope is very limited in how Colin could have frankly fucked this up. We do know he was on a tight leash so the news wasn't unexpected. What was more interesting was whether or not the director would come back to helm "Jurassic World 3," since he turned down the second chapter to make the "Star Wars" movie. 
In a new interview with UPROXX, Trevorrow says the poor reception of “The Book of Henry” led to a painful time in his life. 
“… look, man, it was painful. But, you know, life is full of pain, and we all experience loss. Not all of us have to watch it play out online, but that’s the gig. And I feel like in America right now, your pain is bait. You know, your pain is clickable,” said the filmmaker.
Does Trevorrow think there was a link between ‘Henry’ and his firing from ‘Episode IX,’/
“You know, I don’t know. I mean, I can’t really speculate on it. I’ll tell you that the reaction to ‘Book of Henry’ was far more damaging than the actual movie. And I don’t mean specifically at Lucasfilm. I mean, that was a very acidic situation. And, look, every director who has worked in Lucasfilm put their heart and soul into the job and they left it all in the field, and the bottom line here is that sometimes creative people can’t find a shared path through the woods.”
What does Trevorrow think of being part of the long list of directors that have had issues with Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy (Josh TrankPhil LordChris Miller, and Gareth Edwards), Trevorrow thinks it's good company:
“I know all of them. These are friends of mine and I was very close to them through all of their experiences. And ‘Star Wars’ is a very personal thing to all of them, to a lot of people, and there are some people out there – and I know folks might think we’re crazy – but people like me, who actually believe that there is an all-powerful force that binds the galaxy together. And when you’re one of those people, you’re dealing with your belief system, you’re not just dealing with a movie. And so, yeah, that is a very personal loss.”
Even with the bombing of ‘Henry,’ and being fired from ‘Episode IX,’ Trevorrow will helm, thanks to his buddy Spielberg, the upcoming “Jurassic World 3,” which will complete the trilogy that he helped launch back in 2015.
