After Star Wars: The Last Jedi, many have wondered what Episode IX will bring to the table, especially with J.J. Abrams returning to helm the film after The Force Awakens.

They may not have long to wait; on The Late Show with Colbert, Abrams confirmed that the script he co wrote with Chris Terrio (Argo) is complete and that Filming is expected to begin at the end of July.

It’s still uncertain who will return for the sequel but we can guess that Daisy Ridley and John Boyega will reprise their respective roles. Sadly, we will not see Carrie Fisher’s Leia return for future films.


Luke Skywalker’s peaceful and solitary existence gets upended when he encounters Rey, a young woman who shows strong signs of the Force. Her desire to learn the ways of the Jedi forces Luke to make a decision that changes their lives forever. Meanwhile, Kylo Ren and General Hux lead the First Order in an all-out assault against Leia and the Resistance for supremacy of the galaxy.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is currently in some theaters and will be coming soon to home video!
