The final movie in the rebooted Star Wars trilogy has reportedly been delayed. The Star Wars: Episode IX release date was previously set in May 2019. If a new report is to be believed, Disney has pushed back the release of this movie by a few months.

The Star Wars: Episode IX release date was previously confirmed as May 24th, 2019. The final movie has been in the news quite a lot recently. It was reported a couple of weeks ago that the movie had lost its director Colin Trevorrow who had decided to step away from the project.

It was later confirmed by Disney that JJ Abrams will be returning to direct and co-write Star Wars: Episode IX. Abrams directed the first movie of this new trilogy which ended up grossing more than $2 billion worldwide.

Deadline reports that the Star Wars: Episode IX release date has now been set on December 20th, 2019. It’s similar to the pre-Christmas weekend that was selected for the first movie in this trilogy titled The Force Awakens.

Interestingly, The Force Awakens was actually supposed to be released in the summer as well before it was delayed to December after Abrams took over screenwriting for the movie along with Lawrence Kasdan. The duo needed more time so Episode VI was delayed to December.
