As of this writing, Star Wars 9 hits theaters in one year. The countdown is on as fans try and figure out what J.J. Abrams is going to do with the last installment in the Force Awakens trilogy and the Skywalker saga as a whole. To say that there is some pressure on the director would be putting it pretty lightly, especially considering that the backlash from last year’s The Last Jedi is still raging pretty hard amongst certain hardcore Star Wars fans.
J.J. Abrams and crew have less than a year to wrap principal photography, conduct reshoots (if needed}, and finish up all of the post-production. A year may sound like a long time for Star Wars fans, but it’s really not that long of a wait when one thinks of all of the work that still needs to go into making the movie. Plus, the wait has been rumored to get a little better with the release of the Star Wars 9 trailer, possibly before the end of this year.
