Exciting Star Wars news!
We are rapidly approaching the release of episode 8, The Last Jedi.
We have been waiting an excruciating 2 years to find out what happens to Rey, Kylo and Finn.
Rian Johnson, the director, has been teasing us constantly and everyone has high hopes that he has created yet another Star Wars masterpiece.
There has, however, been some drama about episode 9 that was due for release in May 2019.
The director ‘had’ been Colin Trevorrow and this was being taken cautiously by fans. They were a little nervous. So was I, to be honest. I’m not exactly a fan of Colin Trevorrow’s work.
However, Colin and Disney ‘parted ways’ earlier this week and today it was announced that JJ Abrams, who directed Force Awakens, is returning to write and direct episode 9!!
And here’s where I’m going to cry…..
Because he is going to be re-writing the script, the release has been pushed back to December 2019!!!
ANOTHER AGONIZING 2 YEAR WAIT!!!
On the plus side, it’s JJ Abrams and I ABSOLUTELY BLOODY LOVE JJ ABRAMS!!
I now have complete faith that the trilogy will have a satisfactory, if not happy, ending.

I don’t think agonizing is a strong enough word!!!
