Star Wars Episode IX is the planned ninth live-action theatrical installment in the Star Wars episodic saga, to be produced under the new Disney-Lucasfilm brand. It is scheduled for release in 2019.

DevelopmentEdit

Unofficial reports claimed in November 2012 that Lawrence Kasdan—who originally wrote the screenplays for both Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi—and Simon Kinberg would divide writing responsibilities for Star Wars Episodes VIII and IX, and both would co-produce all three films of the upcoming sequel trilogy, alongside Kathleen Kennedy.[5] However, in February 2013, Disney confirmed that Kasdan and Kinberg were working on standalone films, not main episodes.[6]

In June 2014, it was confirmed director Rian Johnson, who had signed on to helm Star Wars Episode VIII, would write the treatment for Episode IX.[2]

During a concert with the Young Musician's Foundation Debut Orchestra on February 9, composer John Williams stated that he was hoping to get the chance to write the musical scores for the entire new trilogy.[7] It was implied in Star Wars Insider 144 that he would score the entire "new Star Wars trilogy,"[8] but Lucasfilm clarified that he has only been confirmed for Episode VII.[9]

On August 7, 2014, it was reported that actress Daisy Ridley, who will play a lead role in Episode VII, will reprise her role in both Episodes VIII and IX.[10]
