Filming has begun on Star Wars Episode IX under the watchful eye of director JJ Abrams. The cast has been revealed including legacy character such as Lando, Luke, and Leia all returning to complete the Skywalker story.
Most intriguing is a rumor from Movieweb that states the untitled Episode IX has enough story to be split up into two films. It’s already assumed the film will be the longest movie in the series.
This is a surprising move that Lucasfilm is possibly considering. The two-part film idea failed more than it succeed a few years ago. However, the idea has been revisited recently with Avengers Infinity War and broke box office records. The second part of Infinity Wars is due in theaters in 2019.
