STAR WARS: EPISODE IX Will Reportedly Take Place One Year After THE LAST JEDI, According To Star John Boyega

While the film isn't set to hit theaters until next year, star John Boyega has seemingly confirmed that Star Wars: Episode IX will take place one year after the events of The Last Jedi. More past the jump.

Aside from The Last Jedi, which opened just moments after the events of The Force Awakens, it's been a tradition for each Star Wars films to feature a time jump, and  it looks like that tradition will continue with Star Wars: Episode IX.

Speculation that there would be a significant time-lapse between The Last Jedi and the still untitled Episode IX was fueled earlier this year when actor John Boyega said he was able to grow his hair out for his role as Finn. Now, Boyega has once again commented on the timeline, as a recent article from Empire Magazine noted that "John Boyega has confirmed the film takes place one year after the events of The Last Jedi.”

While it's unclear whether Boyega received approval from Disney and Lucasfilm to reveal this information, this new detail on the film's timeline means that when Episode IX opens we may pick up with the Resistance after it recovered from the losses they sustained in The Last Jedi and a Kylo Ren who has further established his new position as the Supreme Leader of the First Order.

Star Wars: Episode IX is currently set to fly into theaters on December 20, 2019 and sees director J.J. Abrams return to the franchise as a director. The cast includes, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Issacs, Kelly Marie Tran, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, Keri Russel, and Carrie Fisher
