We finally know when 'Star Wars: Episode IX' will come out

Meanwhile, as the clock officially started counting down to the last chapter, John Boyega was busy winding Star Wars fans up by photobombing them.

Fans are already gearing up for the company's release of "The Last Jedi" this December.

Are you most excited for Indy V or Star Wars IX?

"We have four or five weeks immersed in the film Han Solo and we are about to read the script of Colin Trevorrow's Episode IX, so we have a lot of work at the moment".

Today, Disney gave the word on those with official release dates for Frozen 2, Star Wars: Episode IX, and Indiana Jones 5.

And the next "Indiana Jones" movie, with Harrison Ford starring, has been pushed back a year.

Ava DuVernay's "A Wrinkle In Time" is being pulled from its original date, April 6, 2018 to an earlier release of March 9, 2018.

Jon Favreau's new The Lion King remake is as expected coming just in time for the original's 25th anniversary, July 19th 2019. Ford will celebrate his 78th birthday just days after the new "Indiana Jones" film is set for release.

Since the franchise was rebooted, all the films - including The Force Awakens, Rogue One and upcoming Last Jedi - have enjoyed December premieres.

The next film in the series Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, is set to hit theaters on December 15, 2017. It will be followed by the sequel to one of the most successful animated features of all time, Frozen 2, on November 27, 2019. "OZO will enable Star Wars fans around the world to be transported into the incredible worlds depicted in the story, and truly feel the power of The Force together". Earlier this month, Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy said that the late Carrie Fisher would not appear in the film as Leia.
