With the release later this year of The Last Jedi in December and a May 25th, 2018 release date set for the untitled Han Solo movie, the question was what would happen with Episode 9. Christmas season has worked out well for the two films so far and we expect The Last Jedi to do well there too, but fans have hoped for the franchise to return to its May roots.
Disney looks to be doing that as the film, set to be directed by Colin Trevorrow, is now set for May 29th, 2019. There’s little listed for that period right now with the same-day films being Minecraft and Doctor Dolittle.
Now we just have to see what’s in store with the next Anthology movie, especially if those rumors of a Sam Esmail written Obi-Wan anthology film becomes real.
