Colin Trevorrow was previously picked to direct “Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker” before J.J. Abrams took over. His name is still attached to the movie for his version of the story, and now he will use the earnings he received for his work to do something good for charity.

The “Jurassic World” director will be donating the profits he made from “Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker” to the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice. According to Deadline, Trevorrow revealed his reasons for doing so stemmed from a decision to honor original “Star Wars” creator George Lucas.

“Through his films, George Lucas taught us about our connection to all living things,” Trevorrow said. “He taught us to take care of one another, and he set a powerful example himself. The Alexander Devine Hospice helps families in the most challenging of times. I can’t think of a more fitting way to honor George’s legacy.”

“The force is strong with us,” Fiona Devine, CEO, and co-founder of the hospice also said in a statement. “We are blown away by this incredibly generous gesture and we are deeply thankful to Colin for thinking of us. This extraordinary donation, the equivalent of paying for a nurse for a year, will really help us to continue to do this and importantly reach out to even more families that need us. We know that there are at least 1,200 children across Berkshire and the surrounding counties that need our help. Our care is free of charge and we are reliant on donations and fundraising to run our vital service. We cannot thank Colin Trevorrow and his family enough for their amazing support and generosity.”

The move comes after Lucasfilm replaced Trevorrow in the latest film. Despite being originally set to direct the third installment of the franchise after Rian Johnson's film when the trilogy was announced, he was let go in September 2017, after putting in two years of work.

Trevorrow is currently working on “Jurassic World 3,” which is heading for a 2021 release. In the meantime, audiences can see “Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker” when it is scheduled to hit theaters on Dec. 20.
