Bob Iger held a press conference last week, just as fans were getting to see The Last Jedi for the first time and revealed a little something about Episode IX...
Bob revealed that J.J. Abrams was due to pitch the story for Episode IX the very next day.
Its interesting because just last weekend at the world premiere of The Last Jedi Bob Iger told David W Collins that he had read the script for The Last Jedi the day after the premiere of The Force Awakens, so history seems to be repeating itself in a great way for Bob!
This could be a sign that there is a first draft of a script written by J.J. Abrams and Chris Terrio (Argo). I really don't envy these guys right now. The Last Jedi shook things up is such a dramatic way, not to mention that fact that we last Carrie almost a year ago and that wasn't exactly addressed in The Last Jedi. I think this might be the toughest Star Wars nut to crack yet. I wish them luck!
