Script For Star Wars Episode IX Is Finished

JJ Abrams revealed on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert yesterday that the script for Star Wars Episode IX is complete.

It is a very dark and stormy night indeed

Imaginary re-enactment of the script writing process

Now, whether that is just the first draft or the actual shooting script is not confirmed. Filming for Episode IX is scheduled to begin in July 2018. So there would still be enough time to tweak the script.

One quote from Abrams’ interview stands out: “Having a script in advance is something we haven’t always been lucky enough to have.”

What are your hopes and fears concerning Episode IX? Do you think JJ Abrams and Chris Terrio can bring the sequel trilogy to a satisfying conclusion? What’s your wishlist of things you’d like to see, or maybe you’d rather not see at all?
And: will JJ Abrams somehow include a scene with a sail barge in the script?

Watch the clip with Abrams here.

Trevorrow Is Out: Could Rian Johnson Or J.J. Abrams Take Over?

Colin Trevorrow’s dismissal from Star Wars: Episode IX  has left Lucasfilm and Kathleen Kennedy searching for a replacement, and it looks like they may turn to a familiar face. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rian Johnson and J.J. Abrams are the top choices to replace Trevorrow. Furthermore, their sources indicate that continued issues with the script led to the Trevorrow’s dismissal. At the moment, Rian Johnson seems like the most likely candidate. Johnson is a well respected writer and may be better suited to finish the script. The word is that Johnson was a perfect fit for The Last Jedi and had a seamless working relationship with Lucasfilm.  It makes sense that Lucasfilm would want to work with him again. What do you think about the possibility of Rian Johnson or J.J. Abrams returning to direct Episode IX? Let us Know!

Abrams to have R2-D2 go with Rey to Ach-To and leave BB-8 behind, Colin Trevorrow asked Johnson for a similar favor. Click through to find out more.

The Hollywood Reporter has posted an article which ushers in concern for Star Wars Episode IX based on director Colin Trevorrow’s critically panned The Book of Henry. Apparently the film is so bad that the critics couldn’t stop laughing. And we know how disastrous the Jurassic World reboot film was. Should Star Wars fans be concerned about this latest installment in the series? This quote is especially disconcerting: “And the compounding coincidences he requires in order to deliver a happy ending are almost disgustingly dishonest.” Although, this is exactly what TFA brought us so it might be the perfect marriage here. No comment from this peanut gallery, but special thanks to our friends at for alerting us to this interesting Friday story.
