With Star Wars: The Last Jedi only two months away it’s time to start turning our heads towards the final film in the most recent trilogy, Star Wars: Episode IX. J.J. Abrams is returning to the franchise to finish what he started with filming for the project reportedly set to begin in June.
The Tracking Board’s Jeff Sneider shared the news via his Twitter:

That would mean pre-production for the film would begin sometime towards the beginning of 2018 with filming coming soon after that. Abrams was also brought, along with Chris Terrio, to write a new script for the film which is likely to be nearing completion.
