‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ delayed until December 2019. Makes sense, I assume they have no script right now
Lots of Episode IX news lately. Jurassic World guy was fired. J.J. Abrams was brought in to both write *and* direct. Now, the aforementioned film has been delayed six months. This makes sense since, you know, I imagine Abrams is starting from scratch on the script. I don’t really have a problem with this, despite my horrid moaning about Abrams taking over. Frankly, I don’t want any of Jurassic World guy’s script. Not only that, though, but I enjoy Star Wars movies as a Christmas treat.
After this morning’s announcement that J.J. Abrams is returning to write and direct Star Wars: Episode: IX, Lucasfilm has confirmed a new release date for the finale of the new trilogy: December 20, 2019, meaning that Episode IX will now be released in the same month as the first two installments of the sequel trilogy, and last December’s Star Wars: Rogue One.
