'Star Wars: Episode IX' release date announced

Luke in 'The Last Jedi'

The news comes via Variety without any details or fanfare.

Disney has recently announced the anticipated release dates for several major films including Star Wars: Episode IX and the untitled fifth Indiana Jones movie. Colin Trevorrow will direct "Episode IX", after J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson sat in the chair for Episode VII and VIII, respectively. The original Star Wars was originally slated for release in December of 1976, but eventually pushed back to summer of May 25, 1977.

Disney have been unveiling a string of release dates and 2019 is truly going to belong to the studio.

This will be a bit of a change for the brand, which has had "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", the spinoff "Rogue One", and the upcoming "Last Jedi" all open around the Christmas holiday.

In between these two films, we got the first "Star Wars Story", the expanded Universe films that keep the series ticking over between the main sequels.

Newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac are all expected to return to ther roles in the blockbuster, with shooting likely to start in 2018.

As we wait as patiently as we can for Disney to give us a taste of the next Star Wars movie, they've already gone about making us even more excited for Star Wars: Episode IX by announcing the movie's release date. Earlier this month, Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy said that the late Carrie Fisher would not appear in the film as Leia. For now, at least, there is still no confirmation that the Project Scorpio console will already be released when "Star Wars Battlefront 2" is made accessible first to EA Access members on November 9 or when its worldwide release takes place on November 17. What we also know is that this will answer questions that are left in The Last Jedi. "The Lion King (Live Action)" film featuring James Earl and Donald Glover will be directed by Jon Favreau, and it will come out in July of 2019.
