Star Wars Episode 9 Countdown: How long until Star Wars Episode IX release date?

Star Wars: Episode IX may be one of the most anticipated movies of 2019.

Promising to close out the Skywalker saga with bells on, the movie sees JJ Abrams return to the directing chair.

Episode 9’s other arduous task is giving the late, great Carrie Fisher a proper send-off as Leia.

Fisher will reprise her role via unused footage from The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

Undeniably, a lot is riding on this movie.

How long until Star Wars Episode 9 is out?

For fans in the UK, as of the time of writing, there are 489 days until the movie comes out.

A more manageable way of saying it would be one year, four months, and two days until Episode IX is in UK cinemas.

STAR WARS EPISODE 9 LEAK: WHAT ARE LUKE SKYWALKER’S TWO SCENES IN IX?

For fans in America, they have to wait one more day to see Rey, Finn, and the rest of the gang back in action.

The movie will be released in the UK on Thursday, December 19, 2019.

While a day gap is unlikely to allow for too many spoilers, fans in America should steer clear of Twitter if they wish to remain unspoiled.

Likewise, UK fans should be wary of their friends in France and Sweden who will get Episode 9 in cinemas on Wednesday, December 18, 2019.

JJ Abrams also directed Episode 8 which propelled the Star Wars franchise back into superstardom after the flops of the prequels.

He co-writes the screenplay for Episode 9 with Chris Terrio, known for his work on Justice League, Batman V Superman, and Argo.

While Episode 9 is bringing the end of the Skywalker saga, Rian Johnson (director of The Last Jedi) has been given a new trilogy to put his name to.

Star Wars fans may be thrilled to hear this or may receive it with the same backlash they levelled on The Last Jedi.

STAR WARS 9: WILL REY AND KYLO CREATE THE CHANCE FOR MORE STAR WARS?

Episode 9 still has plenty of time before its release date, but there are several tidbits of cold, hard facts for fans to parse.

Not to mention the theories currently being bandied about surrounding the title of Episode 9.

The Star Wars sequel’s working title is trIXie – perhaps just a clever way to get IX into it – but the official title is yet to be confirmed.

Right now, it seems everyone’s money is on Star Wars: A New Order.

Whatever the title of Episode 9, fans will certainly flock to cinemas to see the final chapter of the Skywalker story.

Star Wars: Episode IX is in cinemas December 19, 2019.
