Star Wars Episode 9 was slated to be released on May 24, 2019. However, it has been delayed to a later date. Episode 9 has been pushed back to the traditional Christmas release window. It will be released on December 20, 2019. Now with the delay, the new director JJ Abrams will have more time to work on the project.
You might know that Episode 9 will be the final installment in the new trilogy. In the UK, the movie will open on December 19, 2019. It is no surprise that the new Disney Star Wars movies have been rescheduled quite a lot recently. If we look at The Force Awakens, which was moved from a summer 2015 release to December. Then The Last Jedi was announced for May 2017 but, it was later pushed to a winter release.
The fans have come to expect these delays, and it doesn’t surprise them anymore. The filming for Episode 9 began in August 2018, and it is supposed to finish in February 2019. Recently at Disney’s annual shareholder meeting, a new trailer or teaser was shown. However, it would be wrong to call it a trailer as it also included behind-the-scene footages, although it is not yet released for everyone. However, the information is coming from an insider who was present there. There are a lot of rumors spreading right now, and numerous theories are being circulated. It just shows the interest of fans who are anxiously waiting for the next Star Wars film!
Now moving on to the cast of the movie. The following cast members will be coming back:
Daisy Ridley as Rey
John Boyega as Finn
Adam Driver as Kylo Ren
Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron
Anthony Daniels as C-3P0
Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker
Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux
Kelly Marie Tran as Rose.
So far we have had no updates about the synopsis of Episode 9 but, we know that the story will pick up from the end of The Last Jedi. It has been confirmed that the Star Wars: Episode IX will be the final installment which is based around the Skywalker clan. So, the movie finally brings down the curtain on the saga, which was started over forty years ago by George Lucas.
Naturally, the expectations around the movie are very high, and the fans will be hoping that the next episode will deliver something worth remembering.
