Star Wars 9 could actually be filmed in outer space!
Shortly after Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens premiered worldwide in December, news and rumors about the next movie in the franchise started surfacing the web. And now that we know the 8th installment of the popular Sci-Fi saga will come out in December 2017, we also know that we can expect Star Wars 9 to hit theaters in May 2019. Another thing we know for sure about the 9th installment is that it will be directed by Colin Trevorrow – the genius standing behind the phenomenal Jurassic World.
Trevorrow stated that he is planning on filming parts of Star Wars 9 in space. That’s right – the director wants to shoot some scenes in outer space – a tech goal, which has already been achieved in the movie industry before. Christopher Nolan, who directed box office success stories like Interstellar, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises and Inception, used NASA footage for his masterpiece Interstellar, which starred Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain. So, fans of Star Wars have every right to believe Trevorrow will be able to film some scenes for Star Wars 9 in space.
Unfortunately, the director still hasn’t received any answer to the inquiry he sent for outer space filming. In other words, it’s still questionable if he’ll be allowed to actually bring a camera and a bunch of crew members to the International Space Station so that he could film some pretty awesome and absolutely authentic scenes in space for the upcoming movie. We’re sure every single Star Wars fan out there is rooting for Trevorrow’s cause right now and is hoping that the director will be granted an official permission. The star wars are supposed to be happening in space, after all!
