‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ Title Theory Connects Back to Original Movie

When it comes to the conclusion of the Skywalker saga, Star War fans have no idea about how disney is going to handle it’s ending.

A Reddit post from now-deleted user have surfaced online according to which Episode IX’s full title should be Star Wars: A New Order. The reddit post points out that the subtitle would have a variety of different meanings, ranging from new version of the First Order under the leadership of Kylo ren (Adam Driver), to the new potential Jedi Order which was alluded to at the end of Episode 8: The Last Jedi.

It is almost impossible to deny just how well the title fits the upcoming movie, both as a nod to ‘A New Hope’ and a vague plot device. As we already know that Episode IX is going to bring the Skywalker saga to an end, this sort of symmetry will definitely tug on many fans’ heartstrings.

Star Wars: Episode IX started filming late July 2018, with J.J. Abrams returning to the direct the movie once again. The returning cast members will include Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Kelly Marie Tran, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o, Joonas Suotamo and Billie Lourd. Joining the cast for the upcoming movie are Keri Russell, Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant, who will be joined by veteran Star Wars actors Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, and Billy Dee Williams, who will reprise his role of Lando Calrissian.

We will also see Carrie Fisher return as Leia Organa, using unreleased footage from the last installments The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

“We desperately loved Carrie Fisher,” Abrams said in a statement. “Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us. We were never going to recast, or use a CG character. With the support and blessing from her daughter, Billie, we have found a way to honor Carrie’s legacy and role as Leia in Episode IX by using unseen footage we shot together in Episode VII.”
