Let's Do the Time Jump Again. Star Wars Episode IX Picks Up Not Long After Last Jedi
According to the man formerly known as FN-2187, John Boyega, there will indeed be a bit of a time jump in between Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi and Star Wars: Episode IX, directed by J.J. Abrams.
In an interview with Empire Magazine, they noted "John Boyega has confirmed the film takes place one year after the events of The Last Jedi.”. So, let’s put that bit of speculation to rest. While time jumps are nothing new to the franchise, it is rather nice to have the confirmation as to when the story will pick back up, as we can kind of get an idea as what we can expect.
With a year in between films, there’s plenty of time for Vader-lite, Kylo Ren, to further eff some shit up as the current, reigning and defending, Supreme Leader of the First Order. And that should also be just enough time for the Resistance recover from the colossal ass beating they took courtesy of the First Order in TLJ. Now, let’s get some official stills or confirmation as to whom exactly some of the new cast members, like Dominic Monaghan and Matt Smith, are playing and it could be an exceedingly good holiday season.
I mean, who wouldn’t want to see the Doctor and Merry Brandybuck join Leia & Luke and Lando Calrissian? Plus, with an outside shot Obi-Wan could appear alongside a few other returning faces, the closing chapter to the Skywalker saga could be, if you’ll excuse the expression, out of this world.
Star Wars: Episode IX blasts its way into theaters on December 20, 2019.
