Details on Star Wars 9 have been kept tightly under wraps to the point where we still don’t even know the title (for comparison, the title of The Last Jedi was announced in January 2017). But it’s safe to assume they’ll be providing a bit of information, including the title, at the Star Wars 9 panel at Star Wars Celebration. If you didn’t manage to make it out to Chicago for Celebration, that’s okay! The panel for Star Wars 9 will be at noon EDT, and you can watch it online below:
What are you expecting to be revealed at the panel? I assume we’re going to get the title, the first trailer, maybe a behind-the-scenes featurette, and a few details on the new characters. That being said, co-writer/director J.J. Abrams loves his mystery box, and I expect Disney will try to keep as much info hidden as possible. They know they’ve got the audience locked in for this movie (Those who didn’t like The Last Jedi will assume that Abrams will “right the ship” while those who did like The Last Jedi will want to see how the saga ends), so they don’t need to give away any details to entice people.
Star Wars: Episode IX opens December 20th and stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Kelly Marie Tran, Anthony Daniels, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o, Billie Lourd, Dominic Monaghan, Matt Smith, Richard E. Grant, Naomi Ackie, and Keri Russell, and Joonas Suotamo.
