Star Wars IX

In other news, the Star Wars official twitter account tweeted that J.J. Abrams will be making a return as writer and director for episode IX.

While some are excited for his return, others in the Star Wars community are upset about the direction of Episode Star Wars Episode VII. Some complained it was paying to much of a tribute to the past films, making it feel like a New Hope Part 2. While others praised him for making the film feel more like a Star Wars movie than the prequels. Either way, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens was a big success with a total Domestic Total Gross of $936,662,225 and foreign gross of $1,131,561,399, which makes it the number one film of all time.
