Earlier today we got an update on the Star Wars: Episode IX director situation. The big news, in case you missed it, is that J.J. Abrams is returning to direct Episode IX after director Colin Trevorrow  departed the project. A short while later, the official site sneakily also updated their director announcement with a new updated release date for the movie: December 20, 2019.

The original release date for Episode IX was May 24, 2019, one day before Star Wars would celebrate it's 42nd birthday. Being pushed to December appears to run in the family with the new Star Wars trilogy. Star Wars: The Force Awakens was originally scheduled to release in the Summer but was pushed to December 18, 2015. Star Wars: The Last Jedi was scheduled to release on May 26, 2017 and it too was pushed to December (15).

Episode IX will be swapping places with the live-action Aladdin movie which originally had the December 20 release date, but will now bow earlier to May 24, 2019. So prepare to spend another Christmas -- or Life Day -- watching your favorite character from a galaxy far, far away.
