The final movie in the rebooted Star Wars trilogy has now been delayed. The Star Wars: Episode IX release date was set for May 2019, but now, if a new report is accurate, Disney has pushed back the release of this movie by a few months.
Fand are just going to have to wait. The Star Wars: Episode IX release date was supposed to May 24th, 2019. A few weeks ago the movie lost its director Colin Trevorrow and Disney confirmed that JJ Abrams will be returning to direct and co-write Episode IX. Abrams directed the first movie of the new trilogy so he is familiar with the job.
Deadline is reporting that the Episode IX release date has now been set for December 20th, 2019, which is similar to the pre-Christmas weekend that was selected for the first movie in this trilogy, The Force Awakens. This may change again before it comes out since we have so much time. So you never know, it may move ahead once again, but if it doesn’t that is just the way the movie business is sometimes. At least they have extra time to get it just right before it gets released so that may be a good thing.
