Star Wars 9 director JJ Abrams gives EXCITING update on Episode 9 | Films | Entertainment

Now The Last Jedi has been and gone, fans are wondering what will be in store for the final part of the Star Wars sequel trilogy.

While Solo: A Star Wars Story is out this May, Episode IX was set for release at the same time of year in 2019.

However, original director Colin Trevorrow was fired by Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy in 2017.

In stepped The Force Awakens director Abrams, who is now in pre-production on a delayed Episode IX.

According to Rolling Stone, the 25-year-old said: “Everyone was saying it was going to be Rian [Johnson, The Last Jedi director] and everything, so I was genuinely quite surprised.

“And was like ‘Oh my god!’ and I started crying immediately with three people in the office. 

“And they were like, ‘What the f*** just happened?’ So I emailed J.J. saying, ‘Oh my god I am crying.’ 

“And he goes, ‘Oh my god, me too.’ And then we had a conversation a few days later and we stay in touch. But we stayed in touch the whole time anyway.”

Episode IX will be released in UK cinemas on December 20, 2019.
