    J.J. Abrams, who launched a new era of Star Wars with The Force Awakens in 2015, is returning to complete the sequel trilogy as writer and director of Star Wars: Episode IX. Abrams will co-write the film with Chris Terrio. Star Wars: Episode IX will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Abrams, Bad Robot, and Lucasfilm.

    “With The Force Awakens, J.J. delivered everything we could have possibly hoped for, and I am so excited that he is coming back to close out this trilogy,” said Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.

    Yeah it's what I expected since they pushed back Episode VII ^^ Of course VIII would be pushed back, and of course Episode IX too. So no big surprises there ^^

    Although it would've been nice to get it earlier, it's become tradition for my dad to treat me to seeing Star Wars at the cinema for my birthday (December 18), so I'm glad we'll be able to keep that going now. :)

    Well said!
    It's a "new" tradition and honestly, it couldn't be better! Just "too bad" that Solo is still scheduled for a May release since we'll now have 1½ year between Solo and IX and only 6 months between XIII and Solo...

    Noodles told me earlier and it's great news that JJ is coming back for the final and also great news the release has pushed back to Christmas. I also like the Christmas tradition and it's cool present for 6 years in a row (well 5 due to the last solo film rd).

    JJ comments on why he decided to return for episode 9.

    “I had no intention to return. But when the opportunity presented itself to finish a story that we had begun with these new characters, to tell the last chapter of their story, it felt like there was a chance to do it in a way where we could go beyond, and do better than we did in Seven.”


    “I learned so much in that movie and I saw that this was a chance to sort of realize something that we hadn’t quite achieved – and part of that was it was simply the beginning of these new characters and their story. The opportunity to sort of take what we had learned, to take the feeling of who these characters are and what they are and give them a final chapter that felt in the spirit of what we begun? It was too delicious of an opportunity to pass up.”
