Following Star Wars: The Force Awakens, J.J. Abrams returns forÂ Star Wars: Episode IX.
While appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, J.J. Abrams offers an update.
"We have the script, which is a big deal for me," Abrams said. "It starts shooting the end of July."

"I'm writing this with Chris Terrio who is a genius," Abrams said. "I'm having a great time."
Stephen Colbert also told a story how a couple weeks prior to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, J.J. Abrams called him up and asked if he could come to his office for a drink, which saw the two of them share some Jameson as Abrams was a bit nervous. Watch more below.
