With the exit of Colin Trevorrow from Star Wars: Episode IX, Star Warians have been running around worrying that their favorite movie franchise was about to collapse into nothingness. Never fear! J.J. Abrams is back!

In the press release Walt Disney Studios stated:

J.J. Abrams, who launched a new era of Star Wars with The Force Awakens in 2015, is returning to complete the sequel trilogy as writer and director of Star Wars: Episode IX. Abrams will co-write the film with Chris Terrio. Star Wars: Episode IX will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Abrams, Bad Robot, and Lucasfilm.

“With The Force Awakens, J.J. delivered everything we could have possibly hoped for, and I am so excited that he is coming back to close out this trilogy,” said Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.
