We finally may know when Disney and LucasFilm are set to drop the Star Wars: Episode 9 title and trailer, as it is announced director J.J. Abrams will be present at the upcoming Star Wars Celebration.
Disney announces a Star Wars: Episode 9 panel for Star Wars Celebration on Friday, April 12, which will feature Abrams and LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy.
"With the culmination of the Skywalker Saga arriving before the end of the year, the Star Wars: Episode IX panel is one you will definitely not want to miss!" the announcement teases, with the panel also featuring surprises and special guests.
Disney did recently reveal Star Wars: Episode 9 footage at a recent investor meeting, with the description available online. It is probably safe to assume even if the title and trailer are not released at Star Wars Celebration, that Abrams will at least be bringing some sort of footage with him to the convention.
Star Wars Celebration takes place in Chicago from April 11-15.
Episode 9 has a December 20, 2019 release starring Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, and Billie Lourd, Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and Billy Dee Williams, who will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian. The role of Leia Organa will once again be played by Carrie Fisher, using previously unreleased footage shot for The Force Awakens.
