The Star Wars Show LIVE! Streaming Star Wars Celebration 2019

Star Wars to have a 'hiatus' after episode IX

They'll both be revealed during Star Wars Celebration's Star Wars Episode IX panel, which starts at 5pm United Kingdom time, and runs until 6pm.

Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed earlier today that Star Wars: Episode IX will be the final Star Wars movie before a "hiatus" on the film saga.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is due out December 20.

Menacing laughter from Emperor Palpatine is heard as the screen goes black, then the Star Wars logo is seen in blue.

Lando Calrissian, played by Billie Dee Williams is along for the ride and is laughing.

Abrams is not above wicked misdirection, but the title reveal of The Rise of Skywalker combined with the footage stokes strong speculation that Rey will be revealed to be of Luke and Leia's bloodline.

Stephen Colbert, who hosted the big opening panel for Star Wars Celebration 2019, asked Abrams the question we were all thinking.

Exodus the Spyware that Passed as an iOS App
Following on from the second developer beta of iOS 12.3 , Apple has now released their iOS 12.3 public beta 2. Mostly because waiting for an OTP every time you log into a Google app proves to be inconvenient.

Abrams confirmed that the film unfolds "some time" after the events of 2017's Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

"This movie is about this new generation and what they've inherited, the light and the dark", Abrams added.

Abrams went on to say the film is in post-production as they prepared for the film's release on December 20. Episode 9 will be the final film in Skywalker saga.

"Strangely, we were sort of relentless and nearly unbearably disciplined about the story and forcing ourselves to question and answer some fundamental things that at the beginning, I absolutely had no clue how we would begin to address".

"The idea of having a CG character was off the table ... we said, 'what if we could write scenes about her so it's her performance?'"

But I am afraid JJ Abrams won't give us that because he set up a bunch of dumb mystery boxes in The Force Awakens. We see Finn (John Boyega) and Poe (Oscar Isaac) on a mission together, BB-8 hanging out with a new droid named D-0, and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) taking down a dozen men. It's the kind of thing that has been ingrained in me for so long that now, whenever new Star Wars content comes out, I start screeching into the void about it. The "Star Wars" universe as we know it is about to change forever. But "Solo: A Star Wars Story", based on the exploits of a young Han Solo, drew poor reviews from critics and became the lowest-grossing "Star Wars" film in history.
