Episode IX

Things are getting exciting in the world of Star Wars with the news today that Episode IX will undergo a series of rewrites at the hands of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child playright Jack Thorne.

Apart from his collaboration with J.K. Rowling, Thorne’s other projects include BBC’s recent adaptation of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials as well as Philip K. Dicks Electric Sheep which could make him a nice fit for the genre.

The original script for Star Wars: Episode IX was written by director Colin Trevorrow and writer Derek Connolly.   As of going to print, there is significant speculation around why the re-writes are happening and how substantial they will be. A potential factor is the recent passing of Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) who was heavily featured in the original version of the script.

The movie has a scheduled release date of May 24, 2019.
