    I cannot express how delighted I am that they're returning to the May release schedule! Can't wait!

    Ok, so, I'm super happy about the date and that lands credence to rumors that they will begin filming in July.

    cerealbox Sharing the month with Avengers makes me sceptical of this date being final. Wasn't TLJ originally a May release?

    Eh, I kinda liked the December release date. Made it all feel a bit more "special," y'know?

    But on the other hand, at least this means we're getting the finale in a year and a half after TLJ is released, rather than having to wait a whole two years for it.

    The saga films are done filming a year before release.

    So does this mean, filming starts in autumn 2017?

    I love December too but if we don't have to wait so long, bring it.

    I'm not a fan of going outside at all during the winter so this news has made my day! :p

    I mean, yeah, it wasn't fun to wait out in the freezing cold for Rogue One, but I think the SW films are better served financially by being released in the winter. Far less competition than in May.

    It's so weird seeing a big IX in the Star Wars font. Five years ago Lucas swore up and down these movies would never be made, and here we are now: planning where we're going to be two years from now to see the long-awaited sequel trilogy come to an end.

    Disney must have a big "fairy tale" film planned for December 2019.



    Jon Favreau's live action Lion King maybe?

    I wouldn't be surprised if this happens tbh. While I am concerned about Trevorrow helming IX, I do have faith that if there's problems behind-the-scenes with what he initially comes up, Kathleen Kennedy will step in and make sure that the reshoots and post-production stages fix things up, like with Rogue One.

    I don't care if it only makes four bucks as long as I don't have to brave a blizzard or be eaten by the abominable snowman. :p

    Happy that Disney has transitioned back to May for these films. Being a summer blockbuster has always felt more intrinsic to Star Wars.

    Mildly disappointed by this, I've always associated Star Wars films with Winter/Christmas cos of watching them on telly and getting videos and games as Christmas presents.
    But y'know, I'll be there at midnight

    They're definitely going to have to star pre-production by this summer and start filming in the fall/early winter

    I'm not that enthusiastic about it, but it is just that my enhusiasm kind of disappeared with TLJ trailer. So I just have low expectations for this movie as well. [face_dunno]

    Doesn't make a big difference to me.. But it is pretty cool they are moving back to the traditional release time.
