‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ Will Commence Filming This July; Extras Casting Call Goes Out

Feb 22, 2017


Back in January, we at Omega Underground had heard that filming on Star Wars: Episode IX would being in April. This would be during post-production on Episode VIII and during filming of the young Han Solo movie.

Unfortunately, tragedy struck when Carrie Fisher (and then her mother Debbie Reynolds) passed away. This forced Disney and Lucasfilm to push back the filming start date on the sequel; while they try to rewrite her character appropriately. Given General Leia was expected to have a much larger role in the film.

Now Movie Casting Call has learned that filming will now begin this July in the United Kingdom. With a casting call for extras and speaking roles also has gone out:
