"Star Wars IX" sets release date

The "Star Wars" anthology film focused on young Han Solo will test the Memorial Day weekend first with its previously announced May 25, 2018, release.

Disney and Lucasfilm have unveiled the release date for "Star Wars: Episode IX" as well as the latest sequel in the "Indiana Jones" franchise.

This shift in release dates marks Rian Johnston's The Last Jedi as the final Star Wars movie to be released during the holiday season.

Leia and Han Solo are not expected to appear in "Episode IX", but Harrison Ford fans will get their fix in a now untitled fifth "Indiana Jones" movie on July 10, 2020. It's now planned to open on 10 July 2020. One that is peppered with fun information about the upcoming direction of Star Wars.

The other big news is that Frozen 2, the follow-up to the massive animated feature, has been given a street date, and the film will hit cinemas on November 27, 2019.

This release date pushes the film back nearly an entire year after the original set release date of July 19, 2019.

"The Force Awakens" and the recently released "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" crushed box office records, with both films surpassing $1 billion at the worldwide box office. As we already know, the film will be directed by Jurassic World's Colin Trevorrow.

From there, we hear Luke Skywalker's voice in her head in what will take fans back in time to when Obi-Wan was in his head during "A New Hope" and so on in the original trilogy. The only other films now set for that date are Minecraft and Universal's untitled Doctor Dolittle movie, but you can bet that they're both going to get the hell out of Dodge to make way for the Star Wars behemoth.

Having a release date in place is nearly a sure sign that more information will be coming forth before we know it. Others believe it's because they want to counter the outrage felt by pushing back the newest Indiana Jones movie to make way for the new live action version of The Lion King.
