      Star Wars: Episode IX Rise of the skywalker, First Trailer out

      Lucasfilm and Disney are quickly approaching the premiere of their next Star Wars film, as part of their announced slate to bring the franchise back into theaters every year. Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens started off their plan in the best way possible, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has now been tasked to follow up to a lower, but still high, level of success. Rogue One takes a departure from all previous seven films by not being a saga film – though the main saga will be picked up again in Star Wars: Episode VIII in 2017.
      Episode 8 is one of the most anticipated movies of next year, as it will hopefully answer the burning questions audiences left The Force Awakens with. Whatever questions are not answered or new ones that arise throughout the next film will have to wait until Star Wars: Episode IX hits theaters in 2019 to be addressed. Despite it being more than two years away from potentially premiering, it appears filming on Episode IX could begin sooner than expected.



      Project Casting (via Omega Underground) is asserting that Episode IX will begin filming in April 2017 at Pinewood Studios UK. This has been one of the primary filming locations for both Episode VII and VIII, so a return is hardly a surprise. Instead, the reveal that production will begin so early is curious. For comparison, Episode VIII started filming in February 2016 and will be released in December 2018. This has given director Rian Johnson plenty of time to work through the movie and make what is hopefully another great addition to the franchise. If Episode IX does begin filming in April, the movie will absolutely be on track for a 2019 release.





      Lucasfilm and Disney have so far not confirmed a release date for Episode IX, but either May 2019 or December 2019 seems likely. May used to be Star Wars‘ month to release movies but as Disney has seemingly given the first week of the month to Marvel Studios’ properties, putting two major releases three weeks apart crowds the summer season and cannibalizes the long running success of each. For 2019, Marvel Studios has the fourth and Untitled Avengers movie hitting the first week of May, so it would be a surprising move for Lucasfilm to date the conclusion to this trilogy (and potentially saga films as a whole) so close to another one of Disney’s biggest tentpoles.
      Instead, an April start date could mean the beginning of pre-production as well, or director Colin Trevorrow is being given a massive head start to meet a December 2019 date. December is where The Force Awakens made its mark on the history books and both Rogue One and Episode VIII look to do the same. The young Han Solo movie will arrive in May of 2018 instead, to avoid competing head-to-head with Avatar 2 in December. Episode IX seems most likely to take the December 2019 spot (what with Avatar 3 not arriving until 2020) – and if so, it should have more than enough time to become a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy, if the rumored filming start date is accurate.

      Star Wars 9 Will Reportedly Begin Filming April 2017



      Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is currently tearing up the box office, making the new annual release schedule for Star Wars a smash success thus far. And with Episode VIII looking to drop its very first trailer sometime next spring, and with the still-untitled young Han Solo anthology film set to begin filming right around the same time, the never-ending Lucasfilm production machine is continuing forward apace.
      That makes the third round of sequels and spinoffs the highest priority on everyone’s mind. When can we expect any kind of information on Episode IX and the movie that will replace the dead-in-the-water Boba Fett Star Wars Story? As it turns out, sooner than you might think.
      Omega Underground is now reporting that a second source has confirmed the previous report from Project Casting, alleging an April 2017 production start date for Episode IX. That means that production on Episode IX (in some form) would take place concurrently with Episode VIII’s post-production and Han Solo’s principal photography.


      If accurate, this is highly interesting news. More than the rather-convoluted production slate that Lucasfilm will have to maintain – it’s quickly getting to Marvel Studios-esque levels here – there’s the question of release dates. Both The Force Awakens and Rogue One had their initially-planned opening days pushed back from the traditional May window to December, a move which SW8 is following. Disney/Lucasfilm is releasing Han Solo in May of 2018 based on the expectation that Avatar 2 will open in theaters in December of that year, but it’s plausible that Episode IX will move back to December 2019 (seeing as there won’t be an Avatar sequel arriving that year).





      Still, a production start in April 2017 doesn’t fit the pattern that we’ve seen with Disney’s Star Wars films thus far. Assuming that the second anthology installment does, indeed, keep its May 2018 debut, here’s a list of the various movies’ production start dates, their release dates, and how many months transpired between the two:

      • Episode VII – May 2014/December 2015 (19 months)
      • Rogue One – August 2015/December 2016 (16 months)
      • Episode VIII – February 2016/December 2017 (22 months)
      • Young Han Solo – February 2017/May 2018 (15 months)

      A filming start next April, with a debut in May 2019, would give Star Wars: Episode IX a sizeable 25 month window. If we bump the film back to December of that year, then the production cycle grows to 32 months.
      This means that either (a) the information is incorrect or that (b) Disney executives, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, and co-writer/director Colin Trevorrow are all so concerned about sticking the landing perfectly right – since this may very well be the swan song to the entire Skywalker family story and all – that they’ve built themselves a filmmaking lifecycle that more closely mirrors what George Lucas did with all six of his installments; giving himself plenty of time and room for reshoots or writing entirely new material, based on how the movie evolves in the editing room. Either way, it opens a can of worms – one that fans of Star Wars should enjoy following and obsessing about over the course of the next few years.

      Star Wars: Episode 9 to Begin Filming in Late 2017?




      The Star Wars community was hit with the bad news today that the galaxy’s favorite princess is no longer with them. The news has since been the source for a number of updates on the future of the franchise’s films, mostly in regard to what degree General Leia will play a role. Reportedly, Fisher completed filming a much larger role in Star Wars: Episode VIII prior to her passing, and was expected to return for Star Wars: Episode IX, but the story will now be retooled to accommodate for her absence.
      Recently, reports have begun to circulate that Episode IX could begin filming sooner than expected with Lucasfilm potentially eyeing spring 2017. However, a new report points to director Colin Trevorrow having to wait much longer before he can begin.
      The new details come courtesy of Deadline who confirmed that Leia was expected to return for the end of the trilogy, but also revealed that the previous filming timeframe appears to be off. Their sources indicate that Episode IX will not begin production “for about a year.”





      The timing of the information, which contradicts previous reports could be an indicator of how much the studio will have to rework the story without Leia. Given the path that Star Wars movies have traditionally followed, Episode IX may well have had another large role for Leia, as a general in the Resistance, but also in shaping the arc of Kylo Ren. Then again, the reveal that production may not begin as soon as anticipated may simply be coincidence.
      Regardless of whether Episode IX begins production in the spring or waits until winter of 2017, the film should still have more than enough time to finish production without impacting its tentative theatrical release date. Lucasfilm has yet to confirm the precise date for the film’s premiere, but it will likely be in either May or December of 2019. The studio has traditionally started production on new films nearly a year and a half before it is expected to bow in theaters. This new start date would still line up for a May release, but with both Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story performing so well in December, the rest of the films may wind up following suit.
      Screen Rant will have more details on the production schedule of Star Wars: Episode IX as they are made available.

      Star Wars 9 May Use Carrie Fisher Footage, No CGI

      Star Wars: Episode IX may use footage of the late Carrie Fisher to conclude her role as General Leia Organa, according to her brother Todd Fisher. Since the tragic death of Fisher this past December, many fans have wondered how it might affect her role as General Leia Organa in the upcoming Star Wars films. It might seem like a callous way to react to her death, but Leia is as beloved to fans as Fisher was, and to think of the saga continuing on without her was almost too much to bear. After news that Fisher had finished filming a larger, more central role in Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi, fans began to wonder what might await the beloved princess-turned-general in the new trilogy’s final film.
      One major worry several fans had was that Leia’s role in The Last Jedi would be changed during reshoots, possibly to include the character’s death as a way of explaining why she wouldn’t appear in Episode IX. News that Leia’s role remained unchanged were no doubt a relief to this worried sub-group.


      Now, at the TCM Film Festival, Fisher’s brother Todd Fisher has revealed that he and Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd have granted Lucasfilm the rights to use unused footage of Fisher from the prior two Star Wars films. CGI being used to re-create Leia was already debunked in the days following Fisher’s death. Fisher’s brother said in an interview with the New York Daily News:
      “Both of us were like, ‘Yes, how do you take her out of it?’ And the answer is you don’t. She’s as much a part of it as anything and I think her presence now is even more powerful than it was, like Obi Wan — when the saber cuts him down he becomes more powerful. I feel like that’s what’s happened with Carrie. I think the legacy should continue… To me, Star Wars is the holy grail of storytelling and lore and you can’t mess with it.”





      This news is especially heartening considering Leia supposedly has a big role to play in both The Last Jedi and Episode IX. The Force Awakens put Leia in another role of great power, as well as handing her a lot to work with emotionally. To erase that set-up in favor of unceremoniously writing Leia off, regardless of circumstance, would have been a betrayal to the legacy of the character. Leia has always mattered and been more than just a princess. It is only right that Lucasfilm honor the legacy of the first lady of Star Wars and give her the chance to complete her on-screen journey.
      Lucasfilm’s decision to keep Leia as part of the story, without relying on CGI to bring her back, is a smart and considerate decision. It shows the respect the studio clearly had for Fisher. By using unused footage to keep her as part of Episode IX, they are not compromising the narrative established in both previous films, and are allowing both the studio and the fans to have a sense of closure. Leia’s story will live on, and like the Force, Fisher will always be with us.

      That was an ordinary trailer.Nothing to get excited at all,but then again Force Awakens wasn't very special either,it just had nostalgia factor working for it to make it so successful. Let's see how this one goes.
