Fresh from the huge worldwide success of 'Jurassic World', we now know why director Colin Trevorrow so quickly bowed out from directing the next installment of the 'Jurassic Park' franchise. It turns out he was being courted by Disney and Lucasfilm to direct their third film in the new 'Star Wars' trilogy.
