As reported by many news outlets JJ Abrams is returning to direct Star Wars Episode IX. It’s not a very surprising decision by Lucasfilms/Disney. The internet has been torn between joy of a possible sure thing to the aspirations of JJ rehashing Return of the Jedi. I believe the studios just aren’t willing to take too much of a risk on truly untested director. The Star Wars fan based has a love/hate relationship with anyone to touch the Star Wars mythos including George Lucas himself. I have the belief that Abrams will go to great lengths to hopefully bring this trilogy to a close on a high note. Lens flares aside I will be there when the film drops.
