‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ delayed until December 2019. Makes sense, I assume they have no script right now

star wars episode ix delayed december 2019

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.
