A new report is suggesting that Lucasfilm is wasting absolutely no time getting Star Wars Episode IX into production, and that there’s a chance that filming may begin as early as this year.
A new post from My Entertainment World lists a July 2017 start date for the production of Star Wars Episode IX at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England. If the report proves to be accurate, then the movie would begin its production cycle nearly two years – or possibly more – ahead of its release date in 2019. While December 2019 is the safe bet for the Saga movies so far (with The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi following similar release patterns, along with Anthology movie Rogue One), the May window is also a potential option now that Han Solo is targeting one such release. On the subject of Han Solo, it may just be possible that Episode IX will begin pre-production once Han Solo‘s on-set filming wraps up.
Star Wars Episode IX is expected to be released in 2019. Cast members that are already confirmed to return include Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn (FN-2187), Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, and Anthony Daniels as C-3PO.
8 Ways In Which ‘Star Wars’ Can Reach Its Full Potential
The Star Wars Universe is one of the greatest cinematic achievements of all time and the high quality of the recent films are not only proving how strong a franchise it is, but also continuing to gain legions of new fans every year. The series is fantastic and Disney’s films have brought it back in favor with both audiences and fans, but like any good franchise there are always ways in which a series can improve and as a huge fan I don’t think the series is at its full potential yet. There have been some minor issues and things that could be done differently that could make the series even greater than it already is and these can be addressed in future Star Wars films and in other mediums as well. With all of this being said it is appropriate to look at some of these issues and see how they can be addressed in a manner that could give everyone what they will want.
