Addendum - I neglected to note earlier, the movie was delayed to December 2019.  Previously, it was late May 2019.  Unless the Han Solo movie gets delayed as well - and I can't assume it won't - it would be the only Disney-era movie to be released in May so far.

In what can only be called a safe choice, StarWars.com posted the article J.J. Abrams to Write and Direct Star Wars: Episode IX.   Colin Trevorrow was recently ousted from the film, one of at least four projects encountering significant upheaval in the Star Wars universe over the last decade.   Surely there's a non-disclosure agreement keeping us from knowing the full details of what happened here - or Josh Trank's movie, or Star Wars Detours, or the Han Solo film which is supposedly coming out in 8 months and has no name or no trailer - but I look forward to eventually hearing the full story on this tumultuous era of Star Wars.
