Star Wars: Episode IX Premiere Date Set

Star Wars: Episode IX is coming sooner than we expected: Disney just moved the release date for the film up to May 24th, 2019, io9 reports.

Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World) will direct the final installment of the sequel trilogy, set to follow The Last Jedi, which will be out at the end of this year. As io9 points out, the other two sequels were both scheduled for a Christmas release, but Episode IX will be the outlier arriving on Memorial Day. The Hans Solo standalone movie has also been given a May release date. The first six Star Wars films were also released in the summer, so this could be a return to that schedule.
