The force is
staying with J.J. Abrams!
J.J. Abrams is
returning to direct “Star
Wars: Episode IX,” Disney and LucasFilm announced on Tuesday! The 51-year-old mega-director and writer will be
returning to the trilogy that he revived back in 2015 with “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
J.J. delivered everything we could have possibly hoped for, and I am so excited
that he is coming back to close the trilogy,” LucasFilm President
Kathleen Kennedy said on Starwars.com.
This isn’t the only major project Abrams is currently working on. He is still the executive producer of HBO’s hit “Westworld” and is also helming “M:16-Mission Impossible.”
The countdown is on for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” which hits theaters December 15th!
