JJ Abrams to direct 'Star Wars: Episode IX'

JJ Abrams to direct 'Star Wars: Episode IX'”

Episode IX release date was previously set in May 2019.

J.J. Abrams, who of course reignited the big screen Star Wars franchise in 2015 with The Force Awakens, has now been confirmed to be returning to the series as the director and co-writer of Star Wars: Episode IX.

Abrams, too, surely learned valuable space-sequel lessons from his second Star Trek film, Into Darkness, which was inventive but also included a studio compromise or two that he later said he regretted.

Chris Terrio, who won an Oscar for writing Argo in 2013, will co-write the ninth instalment with Abrams. "That's not something that you can just make up in an afternoon, and I really struggled with this thing". Not long now. I hope that Disney knows what they are doing, but I suspect that more watered down Star Wars is coming our way. Well, if you've got the hookup, maybe you can get a cameo like Joseph Gordon-Levitt is getting in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. "The Force Awakens" filmmaker#Jj Abrams will be handling the making of the new film installment after "The Last Jedi." More recently, his latest feature The Book Of Henry struggled. Abrams and Kennedy will both be producers on "Episode IX". Now "Aladdin" has "Episode IX's" old May 24, 2019 opening, moving it up half a year.

The appointment comes following the departure of Colin Trevorrow last week amid reports of a "difficult" relationship with LucasFilm bosses. "We wish Colin the best and will be sharing more information about the film soon". Earlier this year, the company said Mr Ron Howard would replace Phil Lord and Christopher Miller at the helm of the Han Solo stand-alone film. While films generally undergo several rewrites, Episode IX's case may be somewhat unique in that it appears to have undergone several major revisions. He has clearly demonstrated his ability to manage large casts of characters and to balance the needs to nostalgia and novelty to create something that at once feels like Star Wars, yet simultaneously like nothing we've ever seen before.

No news yet on who his successor on the film will be.
