In a slow news day in the Star Wars universe, Lucasfilm announced that J.J. Abrams would replace Colin Trevorrow as writer and director of Star Wars Episode IX.
StarWars.com has the details here, including who will be co-writing and producing the film. Abrams now has the opportunity to finish what he started in 2015.
Also, Lucasfilm managed to slide in the conclusion of the sequel trilogy will hit theaters on December 20, 2019.
There will be plenty of time to speculate about what this all means for the franchise going forward, but it is important to remember that we have The Last Jedi and the untitled Han Solo standalone film to get through first.
Stay tuned to more from the Brick City Blockade Podcast Network.
