The original story of Colin Trevorrow for Star Wars 9 is revealed. In 2015, when it was fresh from the success of the record Jurassic WorldTrevorrow was hired to write and direct the then untitled Star Wars 9, ending the sequel trilogy that started with The awakening of strength. Unfortunately, Trevorrow and Lucasfilm separated a couple of years later, citing creative differences in the script. Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams was brought back to the helm and wrote (with Chris Terrio) the film that would become Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, concluding not only the trilogy, but the entire Skywalker saga.

As many now know, Rise of Skywalker the reactions were quite mixed. The professional reviews have moved to the negative side of the spectrum, with the feeling that it was a hasty, padded and messy final chapter that concerned the reconciliation of some of the The last Jedi more divisive elements. Though The Rise of Skywalker it’s a box office hit as it approaches $ 1 billion, there’s no denying it was the worst received of the trilogy, and some viewers may wonder what Trevorrow had in mind when he was working on the film. Now, his version seems to have been revealed.
The playlist he spent some time digging Star Wars 9’s development, learning all about Trevorrow Star Wars 9 (which was called Duel of destinies). The most recent version appears to have been written after Carrie Fisher’s untimely demise in December 2016, which explains Leia’s lack of main story. As might be expected, there are several key differences between Duel of destinies is The Rise of Skywalker, The main role of Rose Tico among them. Instead of being sidelined, Rose had the title of a subplot together with Finn (further developing their dynamic from Last Jedi) where the two travel to Coruscant and activate a beacon in the old Jedi temple so they can rally people to the cause of the Resistance. Finn eventually ends up leading an army of reformed stormtroopers who defect from the First Order (as himself) in a battle for Coruscant.
The emperor Palpatine is another notable difference between the two versions, that is why it is not present Duel of destinies. It appears that the Emperor was mentioned by name in the Trevorrow version, but in reality he did not appear. Instead, Kylo Ren was Duel of destinies main villain (continuing his arc from Last Jedi), although Rey still thought it possible that Ben Solo would come back to light. During the couple’s climactic showdown, the ghosts of Luke, Obi-Wan and Yoda helped Rey and tried to redeem Ben, but without success. Another interesting aspect of Rey Duel of destinies the story was revealed Kylo Ren killed his parents and Rey is not Palpatine’s nephew. Rey also spent part of Duel of destinies on a mission with Poe, so the main Resistance group appears to have been split for a while before meeting in Coruscant’s third act.
Obviously, it is impossible to say if Duel of destinies would have been a better movie than The Rise of Skywalker, but at least it reads like a real Last Jedi sequel that would have honored Rian Johnson’s film. Many of the problems that people have had The Rise of Skywalker it wouldn’t have been a problem here, like Rose and Rey’s kinship management. Duel of destinies it also did not include any bizarre retreat from Luke Skywalker, as the First Order is seeking to crush a rebuilding Resistance that was inspired by Luke’s sacrifice. There was even a scene at the end of Duel of destinies which showed the infamous Broom Boy as one of Rey’s new Jedi students. Since it is Star Wars, Duel of Destinies obviously not everyone would like it, but it would have been interesting to see.
It is not known what exactly caused the irreparable schism between Trevorrow and Lucasfilm, and fans will probably never know the whole story. Just like the shocking shooting of Phil Lord and Chris Miller Solo: a Star Wars story, what went wrong behind the scenes Duel of destinies it will be a mystery publicly discussed only in the most vague (if not entirely) terms. Lucasfilm is turning the page and moving on from the Skywalker saga, so frankly he wouldn’t do very well on the upper floors to dwell on the past and get details on a canceled film. As for the spectators, those who didn’t like it The Rise of Skywalker he can be left wondering what could have been.
