So I wasn't sure if I wanted to cover this or not as I've had a personal rule for the podcast from the beginning. I generally strayed away from scripts that I couldn't be 100% sure were authentic but in the end its impossible to be 100% sure if ANY of the scripts covered are authentic so I figured that this was at least worth covering.
So allegedly a Reddit use got their hands on an early Episode IX script written by Colin Trevorrow before he was no longer attached to the project. Now apparently it has been independently verified which is what makes covering this feel okay to me. There was also some concept art out there that Trevorrow confirmed were from his version.
The Star Wars sequel trilogy has been a divisive series to say the least but most people seem to agree that The Rise of Skywalker felt more like fan service than a Last Jedi sequel. The question now is would the Trevorrow version have made any difference?
Written By: Colin Trevorrow
Logline: The ultimate conclusion to the Star Wars arc comes to a clash as Rey and the Resistance seek to topple Supreme Leader Kylo Ren and the First Order.
