The closing part of the new sequel trilogy is to be helmed by JJ Abrams, who launched it in the first place with 2015’s The Force Awakens.
Now back in the driving seat for the concluding chapter, Abrams is assembling his team – and reports suggest his art director is none other than Paul Inglis.
The news comes from Omega Underground, who add that this will be Inglis’ first Star Wars movie.
His credits are vast and very impressive: he’s previously worked on the hugely acclaimed Blade Runner 2049 as well as Game of Thrones.
What’s more, his CV boasts work on Skyfall, Prometheus and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, so it seems this particular element of the production process is in very safe hands.
Incidentally, Skyfall filmed a hefty chunk in Argyll, Scotland; allegedly where Episode IX is also expected to record.
The movie goes into production this summer, after numerous rewrites were undertaken following the sad death of Carrie Fisher at the end of 2016.
The firing of director Colin Trevorrow last year also put an additional spanner in the works, before Abrams stepped back into the fold.
