The biggest news of the bunch is the release date for Colin Trevorrow’s Star Wars: Episode 9: May 24, 2019. This represents a major shift from Lucasfilm scheduling its Star Wars movies for the holiday season, but it also represents the franchise going “home,” so to speak. Until Star Wars: The Force Awakens, this series ruled Memorial Day weekend. Next year’s Han Solo movie will reclaim the date for the Star Wars saga, but Episode 9 will really dig in its heels. The franchise is going back to the summer and it plans to stay there.
