Seemingly out of nowhere, Lucasfilm has confirmed the release dates for two of its upcoming–but still far-off–projects.
Star Wars: Episode IX will not occupy the same December period that the last several Star Wars movies have. Instead, it’ll be released on May 24, 2019. The Colin Trevorrow-directed film does not yet have a title, and Lucasfilm simply described it as “clos[ing] out the third Star Wars trilogy.”
Lucasfilm’s other bit of news concerns Indiana Jones. The fifth film in the series launches on July 10, 2020, and will see the return of both star Harrison Ford and director Steven Spielberg. No further details were shared.
We’ll have more on these movies as it’s announced.
Lucasfilm isn’t resting on its laurels in the meantime. This December marks the release of the next Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi (watch the recent trailer above), with a young Han Solo movie set to follow in May 2018.
