What do you hope to see from Star Wars: Episode IX and Indiana Jones 5?
For fans, that's great because it means you'll get your Star Wars fix a little sooner than expected, but it also means that the Summer lineup gets that little bit more crowded for everyone. Colin Trevorrow will direct "Episode IX", after J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson sat in the chair for Episode VII and VIII, respectively.
