Episode IX to start filming in July with Open Casting now

Star Wars Episode 9 Title Image

We only just got the first picture from Han Solo yesterday and Episode 8 isn’t in Australian cinemas until the 14th of December BUT Episode 9 casting has officially opened as of yesterday.

Lucasfilms are casting for both ‘new lead and supporting roles’ for the filming in Pinewood Studios in London which kicks off July this year! (Yes 2017! Less than 5 months away!). Who are these casting for? No idea it’s an open casting call however for anyone with legal eligibility to work in the UK.

Clearly, Disney are in full factory mode to pump out all the Star Wars you can consume faster than you can do the Kessel Run.
