Star Wars Episode IX rewrites and droids disrupt Han Solo set!
Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie news, trailers and cast

Star Wars: The Last Jedi December 15th, 2017

The as-of-yet untitled Star Wars Episode IX, which will be released May 24th, 2019 will be directed by Jurassic World's Colin Trevorrow. The American film director and screenwriter has already written the script for the conclusion to the Star Wars sequel trilogy with long-time collaborator and friend, screenwriter Derek Connolly, much as the pair had done with 2015's Jurassic World. Despite a recent announcement from The Last Jedi writer and director, Rian Johnson stating that he did not write a treatment for Episode IX, it is believed that he has at the very least contributed towards some elements of the finales narrative, no doubt in line with the overarching narrative set by Lucasfilm, and likely The Force Awakens co-writer and Star Wars alumni Lawrence Kasdan

In a recent report from THR, it has been announced that British screenwriter Jack Thorne, who has written for many British TV shows such as Skins and Shameless, has been hired by Lucasfilm to help rewrite Trevorrow and Connolly's script. Coming from a background of writing drama for the small screen seems to suggest that Thorne has been hired to help emphasize the scripts dramatic impact and strengthen the characters dialogue.

Meanwhile, over at Pinewood Studios in London, it appears veteran director Ron Howard (who was recently hired to finish directing duties on the as-of-yet untitled Han Solo spin-off movie after Lego movie directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were fired over creative differences with Lucasfilm) is experiencing some issues with some of the cast. Revealed by Howard himself via Twitter, it appears the droids are proving to be bigger divas than the actors. Thankfully this revelation is just a bit of fun from the director, which is unsurprising considering he is fondly remembered for playing Richie Cunningham on the hit 70's and 80's TV show Happy Days, opposite Henry "the Fonz" Wrinkler.
