Ok, since we haven’t done this one in awhile, it might go further back than a week.
Welcome Back, JJ: JJ Abrams is back to direct Episode IX. I had no feeling either way on the previously attached director, Colin Trevorrow. I did hope they would get Patty Jenkins mainly because I would love the see a certain selection of Star Wars fandom lose their collective minds over a woman directing. Still, I love The Force Awakens and I have no doubt he will do a great job again. Of course, there are petitions to fire him already.
The Last Jedi is Wrapped: According to Rian Johnson’s Instagram, the work on The Last Jedi is done. Hopefully, a trailer will be coming soon to whet our appetites.
Rebels Will Take a Long Break: Rebels will start October 16, but Disney XD will be showing two episodes. In fact, every weekend until November 13 will be back to back episodes leading to a long midseason break. Don’t know how I feel about this.
