The Last Jedi has just been released, but it’s already time to think about the future Episode IX.
According to The Laughting Place , Disney CEO (Bob Iger) revealed during a conference that J.J Abrams was going to present him a first version of the Episode IX scenario today. A scenario co-wrriten with Chris Terrio, who also wrote ‘Batman v Superman’ & ‘Justice League’.
Even if Rian Johnson, Lucasfilm and Disney are developing a brand new ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy, Episode IX will close the trilogy that J.J Abrams started himself in 2015. The circle is complete, the trilogy can be closed.
A different story from the one planned back in 2015 ?
With the death of Carrie Fisher last year, J.J Abrams may have changed his plans. Indeed, Episode IX would have been “Carrie Fisher’s movie” according to Lucasfilm head, Kathleen Kennedy. If Princess Leia was always among us, the scenario would certainly have been very different than the one presented today.
We will have to wait 2 years to know how the trilogy closes !
