As the director of "The Force Awakens", Abrams rebooted "Star Wars" to largely glowing reviews from fans and more than $2 billion in box office.
Whether those rumors were true or not, the issue still stands that there is now a vacancy in the director's slot for the last installment of the "Star Wars" trilogy.
Abrams will be completing the sequel trilogy by directing and co-writing the film with Chris Terrio. Fans are also hoping he'll be able to deliver a fresh take rather than a retread of Return of the Jedi given the fact many see The Force Awakens as a soft-remake of A New Hope. According to The Hollywood Reporter, during a press interview, Johnson was asked if he had any interest in doing Episode IX.

Now, just after that news broke, it has been revealed that the studio has chose to bump back the release date for Star Wars 9.
