Could we see a tenth movie in the Skywalker family story arc? ‘We Got This Covered’ has expanded on that possibility.
With filming on Star Wars: Episode IX now underway, we’re receiving more and more details about the movie that will close off the modern trilogy of the saga. Recently, we learned that a heap of legacy characters will be returning, including Lando Calrissian, Luke Skywalker and even General Leia, thanks to the use of pre-recorded deleted footage in place of the late Carrie Fisher.
What’s more, there are also lots of newcomers on board, too, like Keri Russell, Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant, who could be bringing a fan favorite villain from the Expanded Universe to life. And let’s not forget leads like Rey, Finn and Poe, all of whom are expected to undergo some major developments. Not least Finn, who will be sporting a new hairstyle.
All in all, then, it looks like Episode IX will be packed to the rafters. So, it’s not really a surprise that rumors point to it being the longest entry in the Star Wars franchise to date.
