Star Wars: Episode IX

The much-anticipated cast of Star Wars: Episode IX has been announced. There will be new cast members as well as returning cast members.

Star Wars: Episode IX will begin filming at London’s Pinewood Studios on August 1, 2018. J.J. Abrams will be returning to direct the final installment of the Skywalker saga.

Returning cast members for Star Wars: Episode IX include Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, and Billie Lourd. Joining the cast of Episode IX are Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant, who will be joined by veteran Star Wars actors Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and Billy Dee Williams, who will revisit his role as Lando Calrissian.

The role of Leia Organa will once again be played by Carrie Fisher by using previously unreleased footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

“We desperately loved Carrie Fisher,” says Abrams. “Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us. We were never going to recast or use a CG character. With the support and blessing from her daughter, Billie, we have found a way to honor Carrie’s legacy and role as Leia in Episode IX by using unseen footage we shot together in Episode VII.”

John Williams is the music composer for Episode IX. Williams has scored every chapter in the Star Wars saga since 1977’s A New Hope.

Star Wars: Episode IX will begin filming at London’s Pinewood Studios on August 1, 2018. J.J. Abrams will be returning to direct the final installment of the Skywalker saga.

The release is scheduled for December of 2019. Follow along with Chip and Co for more details on Star Wars: Episode IX!
