In case you were nervous about Star Wars: Episode IX staying on schedule for its release, don’t worry! It turns out they got a jump on production and part of the final chapter of the newest Star Wars trilogy has already been filmed, so commence droid dance party!
In a recent episode of MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast featuring Colin Trevorrow, the Episode IX director revealed some insider information about a scene The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson shot for Episode IX.
Here’s what Trevorrow said on the podcast:
“There was one little thing. It wasn’t an adjustment, it was just ‘Could you shoot this one extra thing while you’re in this place on this day?’ And he did, which was great.”
Trevorrow went on to elaborate on the collaborative process that goes into making these movies work:
“The reality of it is that it’s a small group of people, but it’s actually, y’know, kind of large when you think about it — and none of them are corporate, all of them are creatives and all of them are genuinely, very sincerely, wanting to do the work of their lives in order to realize this.”
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be in theaters December 15th, 2017, with Episode IX scheduled to be released May 24th, 2019. If you ask us, sounds like the Force is with them on this.
