'Star Wars IX' to be directed by JJ Abrams

Star Wars: Episode IX, which was initially set for U.S. release on 29 May 2019, is now scheduled to hit USA cinemas on 20 December 2019.

Speaking at a press event in Japan over the weekend, Rian Johnson revealed Gordon-Levitt will be making a unique appearance in the upcoming flick.

The next film in the series, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, opens on Dec 15.

It's nearly as if, like Emperor Palpatine himself, Lucasfilm's overconfidence is their weakness. You always want it to be an emotional story that makes sense, that surprising things happen naturally, I hope those are the kind of things that make the audiences gasp when they see this movie.

Rogue One required extensive reshoots as the plot was heavily reworked.

Although Gordon-Levitt is the first confirmed cameo in The Last Jedi, he's not the only one being talked about.

The initial release date for Star Wars: Episode IX was May 24, 2019.

Deadline reported in the moments leading up to Abrams being officially announced that the film-maker, who also made Looper, "decided not to take the offer".

While the rebirth of the saga Star Wars connects the incidents behind the scenes, between the filmmakers thanked them and reshoots intense, stability and safety are good. Rian Johnson has directed the last Star Wars film, "The Last Jedi". The most corporate time of year will continue to be ruled by the original mega toy brand for the foreseeable future.

Abrams will also co-write the script for "Episode IX" alongside Academy Award winning-screenwriter Chris Terrio. So long as it's better than the Star Wars Holiday Special, there's nothing wrong with Star Wars during the holidays.
