John Boyega is currently out and about doing press for the upcoming Pacific Rim Uprising, and has of course been asked for information surrounding Star Wars: Episode IX.
While he's not giving anything away about the film's plot, the actor did confirm when cameras will finally begin to roll on the highly anticipated J.J. Abrams Sci-Fi sequel. And it's soon.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Boyega said: "I don’t know a thing, but I know I start filming in July. They’re prepping and planning. J.J. has a script, but I just haven’t read it yet. You have to go to a room where the script is… I can’t lie, sometimes you get to bring it back home."
This start date makes a lot of sense given that the film's release date was pushed back from May to December of 2019. That and the unavoidable delay that would've come as a result of Lucasfilm having to find a replacement director to take over for Colin Trevorrow.
Still, it's nice to know when things are slated to get underway!
Star Wars: Episode IX hits theatres in December 2019.
