Earlier this week it was asked in the main thread when we should start an Episode IX thread, and I suggested when the first official news drops.Lo and behold, a few days later and here we are with both the official announcement of the cast along with the start of filming, which kicks off next week on August 1.

This thread should be kept spoiler free for the most part, but speculation is of course welcome, along with any vaguely inform-ish set reports, pics, videos, etc.

Now, without further adieu...



Release Date
December 20, 2019

Director
J.J. Abrams

Writers
J.J. Abrams & Chris Terrio

Producers
Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Michelle Rejwan

Director of Photography
Dan Mindel

Editors
Maryann Brandon and Stefan Grube

Composer
John Williams (his final Star Wars film as composer)

Plot
Currently under wraps. All that is known at this point is that a relatively significant amount of time has passed since The Last Jedi (could be months or years) and that it will be the definitive "conclusion to the Skywalker saga" (meaning that outside of the announced cast below, I would absolutely expect a surprise cameo or two).

Does that mean there are face dancers?

It means I'm a freak when it comes to aesthetics and couldn't leave those spaces completely blank. That, and I have no idea what "face dancers" are.

Either John Boyega has some of the smoothest skin known to man, or that pic of him is heavily touched up.

Hopefully they'll just mention she died in the opening crawl.

I'm on record as hoping she's walking across some random street and a speeder driven by Jar Jar hits her and drives her into the rear end of some animal, who then sits on her and the speeder, killing them both.

Can we PLEASE not this turn into a TLJ/Rose bash fest? I disliked it (and her character) as much as the next guy, but there's literally nothing else left to say on either front. Nearly everyone hated it and her, for myriad reasons, save for the select few who didn't. I don't care which side you come down on, or why, I'm just so incredibly sick of the conversation.

I'm not saying we have to keep this thread sunshine and rainbows, but it'd be nice if we could stick to news, rumors, and speculation of Episode IX as much as humanly possible. If you have something negative say about Rose, TLJ, or how little you're looking forward to IX because of TLJ, I assure you, it's been said every which way already. Again, I'm not bringing this up because I disagree, but because I and many others simply can't handle the conversation any more. That horse has been severely beaten going on months now.

Thank you.

I really hope this one takes us to some cool locations we haven't seen before. For all the problems with the prequels, one thing I think they did really good was show us a diverse spread of locations that really added to the Star Wars universe. They really made it seem like the were massive galaxies out there, all interconnected. I feel like the new trilogy hasn't done a great job of expanding the universe so far. The locations look great, but they really seem like they are just rehashing old locations, even though they are different planets.
TCTTS

That's a great point. For a "new" trilogy, no location has really felt fresh or different or cool in an invigorating way. Really hope that changes with IX.

then do not derail it off the bat by bringing up sore points from episode 8.

My comment was just as "cute" as your Rey/Luke exchange. Either we allow them or not.

Fair enough. I'm my defense, I was aiming for a lighthearted laugh rather than the loathing that infests the usual discussion, but I see your point and agree that I shouldn't have posted that.

I got that, and it is day one of what will be a long 17 or so months.

Crait's an interesting new looking planet without abandoning the authentic rural/westerny feel of Star Wars like so many of the prequel planets do

Like the poster above, I thought Crait was awesome and unique.

Canto Bright was unique and I liked it from that standpoint, even though the story line wasn't the best part of the movie.

Both the planet Maz was on and Jakku, while not nearly as unique, were new.

(Not in the trilogy, but I thought Rogue One and Solo did a good job with this.)
AustinAg2K

Even though it wasn't snow, Crait just felt like Hoth to me. I think it was because it was also desolate and they had basically the same military base. The First Order basically used AT AT walkers. It could have a different place, but it seemed to me they went out of their way to say, "This place is actually Hoth."
AustinAg2K
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Jakku and Maz's planet were new, but they weren't any different than Tattoine and Endor. A lot of people thought Jakku was Tattoine. I actually think Maz's temple could have been cool if they would have spent more time down in the bowels of it. The first level was just Mos Eisley, but down below could have some cool creepy catacombs or something.
