Deal Done! StarWars.com: JJ Abrams to write and direct Star Wars IX   RazorHawk on Sep 12, 07:33

Sounds like they may be starting totally over with the script, they only mention Chris Terrio co-writing it with Abrams. {nm}   notfabio on Sep 12, 07:55

Great news. I was hoping for this {nm}   tomcat90 on Sep 12, 07:58

Updated: Star Wars: Episode IX is scheduled for release on December 20, 2019. {nm}   Antibody on Sep 12, 12:32

At this rate, STAR9 will be in Post-Prod by the time we get a proper trailer for STAR8 {nm}   budice on Sep 12, 08:00

I'm a fan of JJ Abrams since 'Alias'. This is excellent news for the franchise: at the least, STAR9 will be solid. {nm}   lesana on Sep 12, 08:20

"solid" as in pleasantly enjoyable? sure. but "solid" as in having any sense of reason and logic, then not so much {nm}   islander on Sep 12, 08:44

Ep. IX: Schmeturn of the Schmedi {nm}   slipping jimmy on Sep 12, 08:45

"We need more lens flare off the light sabers! And make that droid look like something Apple would sell!" {nm}   Director Abrams on Sep 12, 10:05

So he's making Return of the Jedi 2.... I'll pass... {nm}   Baron_Darcon2017 on Sep 12, 11:17

He is a good director, but STAR7 was a lame movie. Terrible script. {nm}   FabioParme on Sep 12, 11:26

jj abrams is a generic director... was hoping for something a bit edgier. snoozefest almost guaranteed {nm}   ghonner on Sep 12, 15:12
