RUMOR - Star Wars Episode IX Gets Director

That’s 9 for those of you who have forgotten fourth grade math.

With only four years to go, Latino Review is reporting that Disney has finally landed a director for Star Wars Episode IX (2020); J.J. Abrams.  From CBR:

Although Abrams’ name was absent last week from Disney’s press release about the Gareth Edwards-directed spinoff “Rogue One” and “Episode VIII,” Latino Review insists “there’s a good chance” he’ll be back: “[T]hose at Disney who have seen footage from ‘The Force Awakens’ are very happy with what Abrams has delivered. J.J. himself has been vocal about how crazy the process has been, but has given equal time to his love of the series.”

This means that Abrams will have directed both Star Wars Episode VII (7) and IX, creating a so-called “creative bookend for the series.” There was a strong suggestion that Episode XIII (8) director - Rian Johnson (Looper) – would also direct IX, but Disney was all like “F that guy!”

About the Author - GHERU


RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
