Star Wars: Episode IX Cast Announced

 

"Returning and new cast members will join together for the final installment of the Skywalker saga."

 

Star Wars: Episode IX will begin filming at London’s Pinewood Studios on August 1, 2018. J.J. Abrams returns to direct the final installment of the Skywalker saga. Abrams co-wrote the screenplay with Chris Terrio.

 

Returning cast members include Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, and Billie Lourd. Joining the cast of Episode IX are Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant, who will be joined by veteran Star Wars actors Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and Billy Dee Williams, who will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian.

 

The role of Leia Organa will once again be played by Carrie Fisher, using previously unreleased footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. “We desperately loved Carrie Fisher,” says Abrams. “Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us. We were never going to recast, or use a CG character. With the support and blessing from her daughter, Billie, we have found a way to honor Carrie’s legacy and role as Leia in Episode IX by using unseen footage we shot together in Episode VII.”

 

Composer John Williams, who has scored every chapter in the Star Wars saga since 1977’s A New Hope, will return to a galaxy far, far away with Episode IX.

 

Star Wars: Episode IX will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Michelle Rejwan, and executive produced by Callum Greene and Jason McGatlin. The crew includes Dan Mindel (Director of Photography), Rick Carter and Kevin Jenkins (Co-Production Designers), Michael Kaplan (Costume Designer), Neal Scanlan (Creature and Droid FX), Maryann Brandon and Stefan Grube (Editors), Roger Guyett (VFX Supervisor), Tommy Gormley (1st AD), and Victoria Mahoney (2nd Unit Director).

 

Release is scheduled for December 2019.

Billy Dee Williams is returning?! I thought he couldn't return due to cardio issues.

I think I'm more excited about this than anything else.

There's no one left from the old cast, so Lando it is.

I wish I could be happy about a Luke re-appearance, but after his character was so thoroughly ruined in VIII I don't see what a Luke Force-ghost will salvage.

You're allowed to be wrong.

 

I, for one, am excited to see what his contribution to the movie will be.

I'm also allowed to not be excited by everything Star Wars :)

 

I mean, it's better than him not being in the movie at all I guess. At this point I don't really care what they do with Luke, as his story is basically over.

I'm half hoping JJ just half way retcons a lot of TLJ, kind of like 7's ideas got trampled by 8.

 

Have luke just, return somehow. And, be the actual Jedi we deserve. Not forced female empowerment Rey.
