There’s a lot of “Star Wars” happening this year. “Star Wars: Rogue One” is still in some theaters, “Han Solo: A Star Wars Story” just kicked off production by releasing its first full cast photo, and, later this year, the next mainline film in the series, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” will debut in theaters, just in time for the holidays. But today everyone is looking toward the far-flung future of 2019, when “Star Wars: Episode IX” is rumored to release.
A new casting call says the film, the third and final in the current “Star Wars” trilogy, could begin filming as early as this summer. Posted to moviecastingcall.org, the listing says Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Studios will start filming the upcoming “Star Wars” entry in July, 2017.
If that’s true, given how the release dates of the other upcoming “Star Wars” movies are organized, “Star Wars: Episode IX” could very well be looking at a May, 2019 release. The casting call itself, which advertises a London audition, is for actors, extras, stand-ins and photo-doubles. Most starring and supporting roles will be cast by talent agencies in Los Angeles and London.
Beyond the casting call, little is known about the upcoming “Star Wars” film. “Star Wars: Episode IX” is directed by Colin Trevorrow based on a script by “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson and George Lucas. It follows after the events of the yet-released “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”
