Today, Colin tweets out a statement that isn’t quite so subtle. It’s curiously timed with the publication of articles that attempt to use Colin to generate interest in Episode IX. If there was any doubt before, there shouldn’t be now. Colin is on the side of Backlashers.
My 9-year-old is in the next room editing his 2nd movie, BLOODSTINGER 2. He is aware of the potential hazards of a sequel, but promises the film will add depth and character without compromising the core tenets of a beloved franchise that has existed since April 2018.

Mark Hamill responded to Colin’s tweet with the following:
Please ask Nolan to consider me for a role in BLOODSTINGER 3.
That boy is a visionary genius & I value gifted directors.
All the best from his unemployed pal, mh https://t.co/qV5Lz6UJFM

SC Reviews gives his own perspective on this story:
Colin Trevorrow has responded to Mark Hamill:
The boy is now locked in frantic rewrites, adjusting the mentor role to include an epic fight sequence. He is also penning a thoughtful letter to our neighbor, Blair, explaining why we “went another way” with the mentor role. https://t.co/qCqbec5IFA
