This is the third installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy and will serve as the culmination of the Skywalker saga. Jurassic World helmsman Colin Trevorrow was originally named director back in 2015 when the film first entered development, but he parted ways with Lucasfilm due to creative differences over the script. In September 2017, Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams signed on to finish what he started.

In July 2018, Lucasfilm officially announced the film's cast, which primarily consists of returning stars from Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. Newcomers include Keri Russell, Richard E. Grant, Dominic Monaghan, and Naomi Ackie. Filming started in August 2018.
