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!”
