You may have noticed that modern Star Wars movies tend to come out in December, but that isn’t stopping Disney and Lucasfilm from wanting the space epic to become a summer blockbuster once again. It’s been awhile,so I am all for this.
They have announced that Star Wars: Episode IX will debut on May 24th, 2019. This is just three and a half years after The Force Awakens first hit theaters.
You might not want to base your schedule around that date just yet though, since things could change. This will be a welcome change from freezing in lineups for midnight showings in December. Besides, Star wars should be a summer blockbuster. It just feels right.
We don’t have many details on the film just yet. The director is Jurassic World’s Colin Trevorrow and the late Carrie Fisher won’t make an appearance. We know those things. We can expect that Episode IX will tie up whatever loose ends are left after The Last Jedi, since this is the last movie. It will be interesting to see what they do to end it all. Will Luke still be around? Will Rey be the new Luke? We just don’t know yet. Soon we will.
