The Trilogy Closes

Star Wars: Episode IX will conclude the sequel trilogy on December 20, 2019. Last fall, it was revealed that J.J. Abrams would take the director’s chair from Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow. While this ends the trio of films, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy states that newer characters may return in the future. “We’re sitting down now, we’re talking about the next 10 years of Star Wars stories, and we’re looking at, narratively, where that might go. Future stories beyond Episode IX with these new characters: Rey, Poe, Finn, BB-8,” she told The Star Wars Show.

Episode IX will also be the final Star Wars film for composer John Williams. Since the original film, he’s earned six Grammy Awards for his work on the franchise. “We know J.J. Abrams is preparing one now for next year that I will hopefully do for him, and I look forward to it. It will round out a series of nine and be quite enough for me,” he told KUSC.
