Star Wars fanbase is eagerly waiting for the release of Star Wars Episode IX which is also of the most awaited movie of this year. This movie will end the Skywalker saga after decades of onscreen storytelling. It will be released in US theaters on 20 December 2019. This movie has been produced by JJ Abrams, who helmed The Force Awakens in 2015 and successfully brought the franchise back to cinemas. Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy said, “With The Force Awakens, JJ delivered everything we could have possibly hoped for, and I am so excited that he is coming back to close out this trilogy.”

The film was first supposed to be directed by Colin Trevorrow, but the writer/director left the project last year leading Abrams to step in and the film’s release date be pushed back a few months. It is still unclear why he left but he said that all parties had “mutually chosen to part ways”. The release date for this movie was in the summer of 2019 but it delayed due to the behind-the-scenes issues and fans have waited for far too long for the movie now.
