Disney just released some interesting news about Star Wars Episode IX, the last film in the final trilogy. J.J. Abrams will now Write and Direct Star Wars: Episode IX.
This news of course comes after the firing of original director, Colin Trevorrow. Disney and Trevorrow butted heads over the final film and could not agree on a final direction to take Episode IX. In the end, choosing Abrams is a smart and safe choice for Disney and Lucasfilm. The Force Awakens was a great Star Wars film. J.J. did an amazing job, even though it seemed safe. Maybe he will take some of the criticism from TFA and just go all out for Episode IX. As Star Wars fans we deserve to have our socks knocked off and be left with a feeling of peace and closure…until of course they make Episode X. We can only dream!
