Episode IX has a release (and Indy 5 too)
Yep, it’s official—Star Wars Episode IX: The Jedi’s Going Away Party will hit theaters on May 24, 2019. That means we’ll only have to wait 18 months after The Last Jedi to find out what will happen to Rey, Finn, Poe, Luke, and the rest of the crew. Well, that’s assuming that release date holds: Episode VIII was originally supposed to be released in May of this year, but got pushed back to December, so there’s no guarantee that won’t happen again. (The Han Solo standalone movie is schedule for May of next year, and Star Wars movies have traditionally been summer affairs, so this may be a return to form.)
Also, the previously confirmed Indiana Jones 51 got a date today as well: July 10, 2020. I don’t even want to think about how old I’ll be then. Or, frankly, how old Harrison Ford will be.
- Wait, they made a fourth one? Must have blacked out… ↩
