New Writer Brought in for 'Star Wars: Episode IX'

Thorne, who recently penned the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, is the lucky scribe who has been tapped to rework the version of the film written by Trevorrow and writing partner Derek Connolly.

His theater credentials also give Thorne a neat little connection to Star Wars star John Boyega: before getting tasked with galactic re-writes, Thorne wrote an adaptation of Woyzeck, which played at the Old Vic theater in London earlier this summer. In fact, the process is all ready far along enough that Disney has decided to bring in some fresh blood to retool the script. According to the Hollywood Reporter, English screenwriter Jack Thorne has been brought in for the first rewrites of the Episode IX script.

"It was a strange, strange feeling", Boyega said.

Folks in the US will have likely had limited exposure to Thorne's work, though a lot of people in the UK are probably quite familiar with him. "We worked together closely on this", he said, adding, "We really enjoyed each other's company".

Episode IX, expected to begin production in January 2018, is set for a May 24, 2019 release.

Essentially, our beloved princess won't be killed but retired, assuming Boyega's comments are literal and not just metaphorical.

Is This The Right Way To Go?


The Last Jedi is going to be huge for a number of obvious reasons.

Fisher passed away in December last year at the age of 60 after she suffered a mid-air heart attack. "The Last Jedi" director Rian Johnson said Fisher helped polish the script for his movie.

Despite the latter not being the case anymore, it is good to hear that Fisher will be remembered so gracefully.
