It’s been real, guys.
With more movies likely to come, it still bares noting director J.J. Abrams’s upcoming ninth Star Wars film will be the final bow for the Skywalker saga of the franchise. Abrams shared a photo of the principle trio of the latest three films that gave rise to the fandom in 2015 with The Force Awakens and proceeded with The Last Jedi a few years later.
The newest installment doesn’t have a title but nonetheless reunites most of the cast from the previous two along with some new faces, in addition to Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, and the posthumous casting of late actress Carrie Fisher who sadly passed away at the age of 60 nearly a year before The Last Jedi (short of a few weeks before the premiere of Gareth Edwards’ spin-off, Rogue One).
Abrams penned the script with Chris Terrio for its release on December 20, 2019. Check out the photo of Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac in one final embrace. (Deadline)
It feels impossible, but today wrapped photography on Episode IX. There is no adequate way to thank this truly magical crew and cast. I’m forever indebted to you all. pic.twitter.com/138AprtFuZ
