Star Wars: The Last Jedi might have had quite a number of sets and creatures built for its production, but it looks like Star Wars: Episode IX is going to blow every other Star Wars film out of the water in terms of the scope and scale of its production.
A source claiming to have close ties with Star Wars: Episode IX responded to a user who just recently posted images of New Years gifts that director J.J. Abrams handed out to the crew of his film.
This Redditor who tried to provide the proof confirming their involvement in the production of the third and final installment in the Lucasfilm sequel trilogy then pointed out that the two bottles that featured “sand from a familiar and sacred planet” and “beans from a Jedi-eating creature” weren’t actuall part of the original gift. After that, this source then started a new thread teasing details about the upcoming Star Wars movie.
Though the thread has since been deleted, Star Wars News Net managed to keep some of its important points, including a description of the production. According to the site, the scale of Episode IX was “incredibly large, even by Star Wars standards, and fans will be surprised.”
Not only that but two encounters with Episode IX crew members, one who was a fan of The Last Jedi and one who wasn’t, revealed that the final sequel trilogy installment impressed them both.
This is pretty big news for fans. Though we ought to take the report with a grain of salt, if the claims are proven true then Abrams could really be raising the bar for the Star Wars saga. It looks like the sequel trilogy is going out with a bang this December!
Star Wars: Episode IX premieres December 20, 2019.
