Seems that the only person who knows the title for Star Wars: Episode IX is the man behind the camera himself: Mr. J.J. Abrams.
Dominic Monaghan, whose rule on Episode IX has still not yet been disclosed, revealed in an Instagram story post that only J.J. Abrams himself knows the title for the upcoming Star Wars film. You can see his response to one fan’s question in the image below:
Have you ever watched the series Lost? If you have, then you know by now that J.J. Abrams isn’t the easiest person to decipher when it comes to his stories. More than that, you may not know the true meaning of the story he’s trying to tell until you’re well into the story itself. This may not necessarily apply to Star Wars: Episode IX, but it could be another instance of him playing hard-to-get when it comes to his story.
Given how big Star Wars: Episode IX will no doubt be, coupled with the expectations from fans going into the movie, the title would have to be a pretty big deal. Fans will no doubt line up to see a Star Wars movie regardless, but J.J. Abrams holding the title close to the chest is a way to keep them guessing and speculating. Would you want the title to just be revealed already? What are some of your guesses as to what the next Star Wars film will be called? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Directed by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: Episode IX stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Kelly Marie Tran, Domhnall Gleeson, Billie Lourd, Naomi Ackie, Joonas Suotamo, Richard E. Grant, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Jimmy Vee, Greg Grunberg, Dominic Monaghan and Matt Smith.
The film will blast its way into a movie theater near you on December 20, 2019.
New ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’ Posters Showcase Rodan, Mothra & Ghidorah
Earlier this week, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures dropped the newest trailer for their highly-anticipated sequel, Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The new trailer showed off some more epic action following the beloved monster along with some incredible sequences involving Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah.
Now, Legendary has shared three brand new posters for Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah. Given that Godzilla will be battling with these monsters in the new film, it makes sense to see them receive their own poster that boasts their size and scale as they unleash their terror against humankind.
Given that Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah all take flight unlike Godzilla, it is going to be stunning visual spectacle to see them take the skies and swoop down as they all battle to the bitter end for what looks to be one of the most-anticipated blockbusters of 2019.
You can check out the new posters of Rodan, Mohra and Ghidorah down below by clicking "Next".

Directed by Michael Dougherty, Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, O’Shea Jackson Jr., with Ken Watanabe and Ziyi Zhang.
Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be released in theaters on May 31, 2019.
