"Well, it's certainly something that I'm aware of now working on Episode IX - coming back into this world after having done Episode VII".

Some Star Wars fans might be a bit wary that Lucasfilm put The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams in charge of Star Wars: Episode IX, but the filmmaker promises that the Star Wars sequel trilogy will definitely add something new to the science fiction franchise's lore. And at the same time, we need to make them a place-specific, and it is our responsibility. He (we would say) successfully brought Star Wars to an entirely new generation and re-kindled the love for past generations.

Early box office projections are estimating a whopping $215 million opening for Star Wars: The Last Jedi when it releases stateside the weekend of December 15, 2017. Michael [Giacchino]'s worked on things like Planet of the Apes, and Star Trek, and Star Wars and these are the things of dreams. Despite new characters and the use of today's computer graphics, The Force Awakens was an nearly beat-for-beat retread of A New Hope, complete with the destruction of a super-weapon capable of destroying planets. Let us know down below! However, it may not reach the astronomical heights of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

While Abrams believes they need to show them what they can do - the sky's the limit and all - they also need o be introduced to new and exciting things. Fans of the eternal battle between the light and dark sides of the Force want to see a grand finale that's more than just a glorified remake of Return of the Jedi, and it looks like Abrams is keen on giving them what they deserve. It was he, Rian Johnson, Lawrence Kasdan and Kathleen Kennedy who created the characters for the new trilogy, finally, in The Last Jedi our exciting new characters (Rey, Finn and Poe) will take centre stage and the main story that germinated in The Force Awakens will flourish in The Last Jedi and Star Wars 9.
