Robert Boulter was reported long ago to have been cast in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the first installment of Lucasfilm’s sequel trilogy that kicked off the Disney era directed by JJ Abrams.
The image which recently surfaced has revealed Boulter would have been featured in Rey’s forceback sequence mid-way through the picture. While the film did not feature the appearance of a young Luke Skywalker, the film’s novelization did confirm that during her visions, Rey witnessed the iconic duel between Luke and Darth Vader on Bespin in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.

Though plot details remain under wraps, Star Wars: Episode IX is confirmed to feature the return of Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker following the hero’s death in The Last Jedi. The film is expected to be an all-out war between the Resistance and the First Order as the franchise concludes the Skywalker Saga.

The film will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Abrams, and Michelle Rejwan, with Callum Greene and Jason McGatlin serving as executive producers.
In addition to Star Wars: Episode IX, Lucasfilm will be expanding the franchise for the first time with two new live-action Star Wars television series set to debut exclusively on Disney’s upcoming direct-to-consumer streaming service.
First up is The Mandalorian which is currently in production. The new series has been written by Jon Favreau, who also serves as executive producer along with Colin Wilson, Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni, and Kennedy. Karen Gilchrist will co-executive produce. The series will be directed by Filoni, Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok). Plot details remain under wraps but the series is rumored to chronicle the restoration of Mandalore after the fall of the Empire.
Diego Luna is set to reprise his role as Cassian Andor in a new live-action Star Wars series which will follow the Rebel spy working as an intelligence operative during the formative years of the Rebel Alliance before the events of Rogue One.
While The Mandalorian does not have an official release date, Disney’s streaming service is expected to launch by the end of 2019, The Mandalorian is expected to debut with the launch of the service. Production on the Cassian Andor series will likely not begin until sometime next year after Luna has completed work on the second season of Narcos: Mexico.
