Colin Trevorrow Galaxy's Edge

A long time ago in a galaxy very, very close, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow was hired to direct Star Wars: Episode 9. That was back in 2015, and though he’d developed a pitch for the film that moved star Daisy Ridley to tears, he eventually left the project. Most reports indicate that Trevorrow’s vision for the movie didn’t align with that of Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, and since she has the final say on all things Star Wars, they parted ways.

Still, working on Episode 9 – even for a limited time – had its perks. One of them included getting to help design a spaceship for his planed version of the movie that would end up in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and in a new interview, Trevorrow confirmed that even though his vision for the film turned to dust when he left Lucasfilm, at least one element of it will remain in the theme park for the foreseeable future.

Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Dinner Show

The Walt Disney World version of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opening later this summer will be nearly identical to the version that just opened at Disneyland in California…but with one key difference. The Orlando, Florida edition of the theme park land set in a galaxy far, far away will be adjacent to a Star Wars-themed hotel that will allow visitors to seamlessly continue their heavily-themed vacation by “disembarking” a space cruise-liner to visit the planet Batuu. Yes, Disney wants our money and yes, we’re willing to give it to them.

And while many details of this currently unnamed hotel remain under wraps, a new report already suggests one element that will be exclusive to this location: a dinner show that was originally intended for the main theme park land.
