Despite the fact that Star Wars: The Last Jedi still hasn't even gotten its first trailer, it seems like Lucasfilm and Disney are getting ready to work on the very next Star Wars sequel trilogy installment, Star Wars: Episode IX.

A listing for The Last Jedi's sequel has just been posted on film industry professional website My Entertainment World (via Yahoo! Movies), revealing that prinicipal photography for Episode IX will begin this July in West London's Pine Studios.

Just like most details of The Last Jedi which remain as elusive as ever, there is little information on the ninth installment of the Star Wars saga. Aside from the start month of production, all that's known is that the film is to be helmed by Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow with a script co-written by Derek Connolly based on The Last Jedi writer-director Rian Johnson's story treatment.

Though we're not sure of the events of The Last Jedi, we can somehow anticipate the possible return of The Last Jedi's main cast, Daisy Ridley, John Boyegam Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, and of course the legendary Mark Hamill. There's still no certainty as to how Lucasfilm will treat General Leia Organa after Carrie Fisher's passing, however Disney has promised that it would not digitally recreate the character for any future Star Wars film, so we'll have to see.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is scheduled to hit cinemas on December 15 while Episode IX is scheduled to premiere in 2019.
