    Default Star Wars: Episode IX Panel | Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019

    I thought we needed a thread.

    The biggest news so far is Disney announced a 3+ year film hiatus. All current FILM projects are on hold for 3 years or more after IX. "We want Star Wars to be special. We realized that after Solo. We made a mistake. We will take a pause, some time, and reset because the Skywalker saga comes to an end with this ninth movie. There will be other Stars Wars movies, but there will be a bit of a hiatus."

    Noami Ackie's character is named Jannah. R2 and BB-8 beeped her out when she was asked if she's Lando's kid.

    Finn will be more confident and a full-fledged fighter ... Phasma might still be alive.

    Colbert was given the title and trailer to prep his questions. He's asking a lot of romance-related questions.

    Rose will have an expanded role. Higher level officer. Like Finn is now.

    The Skywalker lightsaber lives.

    Colbert got JJ to confirm that Rey/Finn/Poe/Rose/Jannah et al except Kylo will end up with somebody during the film.

    Lots of new aliens, all costumes.

    D-O is the new droid. All practical.
