Treat! Definitely Treat. Hocus Pocus Writer Says a Sequel May Be Coming.

Colin Trevorrow Reportedly Fired From Star Wars for the Most Obvious Reason

Former Star Wars: Episode IX Director Colin Trevorrow was whisked in on the back of his sudden, dinosaur-fueled rise to fame, but it's hard to say that his departure was surprising. Not only have plenty of other directors met similar fates at the hands of Lucasfilm, but Trevorrow's only other major film to speak of was resoundingly panned.
