Star Wars is coming back to the screen and with a vengeance. Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens this December. After this is Star Wars Rogue One which opens on December of 2016. Star Wars Ep VIII is to be released on May 17, 2017, which puts it back into the summer movie season.

There were rumors that were surrounding the director of Ep IX. One rumor named Rian Johnson, the director of Ep VIII of Star Wars, as the director for EP IX. However, there were reports that the Disney executives saw footage of JJ Abrams’s The Force Awakens and were so pleased with the results that they want him to direct EP IX.

As of right now, there is no telling who the director for EP IX is going to be. To Gianfrancesco Genoso it does look like that Star Wars is taking on the form very similar to that of the original trilogy of the 70s and 80s with each film getting a different director. This upcoming series does look quite promising and might even put Star Wars on the map in a greater way than ever.
