Let's face it - 'The Last Jedi' wasn't for everyone.
While we may have enjoyed it a lot, and grasped that Rian Johnson was trying to move the story forward in a new way rather retreading it, others had a problem with the fact that Rey's parents weren't any of note.
Some other people just had a problem with Rey in general. The point is, 'The Last Jedi' was controversial and Lucasfilm are now keen to get the Star Wars property back on track, following 'The Last Jedi' and the troubled production of 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'.
In a lengthy piece on JJ Abrams' future career options in Variety, one line jumped out when discussing Disney's offerings to Abrams. The piece references 'Episode IX' which "has been been billed as a course correction at Lucasfilm after spinoff films like 'Solo' failed to meet the label’s high commercial expectations."
So, what does that actually mean? Well, it's hard to say since we know shag all about 'Episode IX' other than some casting news. Plot details have, as you'd expect for a movie like this, been kept under wraps. That said, this is understood to be the conclusion of what Lucasfilm is calling 'the Skywalker saga', meaning that future films - if there are any - won't focus on Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia or any of the original cast members.
That's a bold move, but given how a lot of the new audience particularly enjoyed 'Rogue One', it could potentially work.
For now, 'Star Wars: Episode IX' is still in production and will arrive in Irish cinemas on December 18th, 2019.
