Star Wars: Episode IX release date set for May 2019

27 April 2017, 03:44 | Myron Mathis

As expected, Star Wars: Episode IX will debut in cinemas in 2019, but actually six months earlier on May 24, 2019, breaking from tradition of debuting a new sequel in December. Some diehard fans are even looking beyond and already speculating on the ending of the current trilogy. We'll be watching Jedis discover they have the Force, learn how to use the Force, manipulate the Force to bring victory to a rebel army and then decide that the Force should probably take a stay-cation for generations to come.

Disney and Lucasfilm have set some new release dates for the upcoming releases of Star Wars: Episode IX and Indiana Jones 5.

But the as-yet-unnamed final installment of the saga will see a return to the traditional May, when each the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy were all unveiled.

In owning both Marvel and Lucasfilm (which makes Star Wars), for example, Disney allows each to have fallow years lest the creative farmland they have laid out around them is rendered barren within a decade. While some fans groused about the change, all was forgotten when Force Awakens opened to $248 million in North America, the biggest start of all time, on its way to earning $2.068 billion worldwide.

The Han Solo standalone film is slated to hit the theaters on May 25, 2018 and will be helmed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Mark your diary in big blue texta and an Olaf smiley face for the most anticipated animated sequel in recent memory, Frozen 2. There have been a lot of rumors about Disney releasing the theatrical cuts of the film, but it now appears that they were all unfounded.

Along with the confirmation of the release dates, Disney has also confirmed that Steven Spielberg will direct Indiana Jones and that Harrison Ford will play the title character. The studio has claimed the date of December 20, 2019, for an untitled, live-action fairy tale.

Disney have been unveiling a string of release dates and 2019 is truly going to belong to the studio.
