“Jurassic World” director Colin Trevorrow and his son designed a “Star Wars” ship that never made it into a movie, but a 3D model of the starfighter exists.
Trevorrow recently talked about his time on set for “Star Wars: Episode IX” — which he was originally hired to direct before he left the project over script disagreements — during the virtual Comic-Con at Home event.
He said he and his son worked together to design a starfighter for the film. He said it would have been in the film had he stayed on the project.
During a conversation with Collider, Trevorrow pulled out the spaceship to show it off.
“So this is one of the – my son and I designed a ship, I have two ships. One of them is at the theme park at Disneyland. This is the other one, and it only exists in this 3D model. It’s called a TIE Marauder, and for Christmas, the guys painted it for me – I only had this in a 3-D model. Now, this is the only one in the world, and it’s an amazing memory for me when I got to do something that was an incredible experience from start to finish that I was able to make a Star Wars ship with my son.”
Interestingly, the ship exists at “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” at Disneyland and Disney World. The park was being built as “Episode IX” was in preproduction so it makes sense that the park would have it.
Trevorrow talked about his time with Disney during the interview, saying working on the script led to some “traumatic” experiences. His script leaked in early 2020, showing a vastly different “Episode IX” than the one we ended up seeing. His film would have been called “Duel of the Fates.”
