“You know what — we’d better or else my wife is going to kill me for growing a beard,” Grunberg says, scratching the facial hair that’s a signature part of Snap’s look. “I can’t officially say anything, but this is getting itchy, and I’m getting itchy to go over there and do it.”
By “over there,” Grunberg means England, where Episode IX begins production this month. Every Star Wars movie is a matter of intense speculation, but the latest film is bound to be the most closely watched, given the precarious position in which The Last Jedi left all of our heroes, including Rey, Finn, and, of course, Leia Organa. (Carrie Fisher died not long after completing production on Jedi, and Leia’s passing is bound to be addressed in Episode IX.) It’s worth noting that Johnson’s movie left Star Wars fandom in a somewhat precarious position as well, with detractors making their displeasure known online — to the point where one of the movie’s stars, Kelly Marie Tran, opted to leave social media.
