JJ Abrams is the director of Episode IX. He is co-writing it with Chris Terrio.
Yes, but my point is... the damage is already done... he needs to pick up after the events and characters of ep 8. Rose will be there, the Jedi will need to keep being wizards of the space with unilimited powers, luke is dead, Leia is alive, snoke is dead, the jedi girl has already done her trainning, the rebels are just 8 people. Of course, in my point of view. I know you enjoyed the movie.
