The Trilogy Closes

Future stories beyond Episode IX with these new characters: Rey, Poe, Finn, BB-8,” she told The Star Wars Show.

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.
