What Did Colin Trevorrow Want Rian Johnson to Add to Episode VIII?

"It sounds as if Colin Trevorrow – who is also co-writing 'Episode 9' with his writing partner Derek Connolly – has been hard at work trying to make the best 'Star Wars' film he can. In a new interview, the director revealed that he asked 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' writer/director Rian Johnson to add 'one extra thing' to that movie in order to set up something that will happen in 'Episode 9.'

During an appearance as a guest on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Trevorrow was asked if he requested any similar changes to Johnson’s script, and he replied:

'There was one little thing. It wasn’t an adjustment, it was just ‘Could you shoot this one extra thing while you’re in this place on this day?’ And he did, which was great. But, y’know, it’s part of the collaborative process that exists – everyone is in communication. There’s such a genuine want to get this right from everybody, and I think that one of the misconceptions is that there’s some kind of great corporate overlord that is dictating this story to everybody, and that’s what it’s going to be because that’s going to sell the most toys. The reality of it is that it’s a small group of people, but it’s actually, y’know, kind of large when you think about it – and none of them are corporate, all of them are creatives and all of them are genuinely, very sincerely, wanting to do the work of their lives in order to realize this.'” - via /Film
