J.J. Abrams Returning To Write & Direct Episode IX


It didn’t take long for Lucasfilm to find a replacement for Colin Trevorrow on Episode IX, and it is a familiar face, as J.J. Abrams will be returning to close out the sequel trilogy as writer and director.

The announcement was made over at StarWars.com with the following statement from Kathleen Kennedy:

“With The Force Awakens, J.J. delivered everything we could have possibly hoped for, and I am so excited that he is coming back to close out this trilogy.”

It has also been announced that Chris Terrio (“Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Justice League,”) will co-write the script with Abrams for Episode IX.

J.J. Abrams coming back is not a huge surprise to me, but I am more than okay with him coming back to finish the trilogy that he started off so well with “The Force Awakens.”
