Earlier today, we learned that JJ Abrams had officially signed on to direct and co-write Star Wars: Episode IX, replacing the recently-jettisoned Colin Trevorrow (Book Of Henry #NeverForget). And now, hot on the heels of that announcement, we know when it's gonna get here.
Take it away, Star Wars Twitter feed:

Yes, that's right: Star Wars: Episode IX arrives on December 20th, 2019, pushed back from its original release in May of that year. Makes sense, given that all involved will need a little extra time to rework whatever had been done to the script while Trevorrow was at the helm. Sure, we've gotta wait a little longer, but you do want them to get everything just right, don't you?
Anyway, that's it. That's all we know. Star Wars: Episode IX gets here December 20th, 2019. Please plan accordingly.
