Much like Avengers 4, there has been major speculation about what the official title of Star Wars Episode 9 will be. While fans assume that Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) will be the head of the First Order when episode 9 begins, he may play such a large part of the story, that they title could be Star Wars: Order of Ren.
According to the anonymous leak, “This is something being talked about now, it’s a huge rumor about (director) JJ Abrams and the shift with the script and adjustments… There has been lots of talk that the movie will either be called Order of Ren or was going to be called Order of Ren.”
My #1 reason for believing Kylo Ren should die in Ep IX?
You don’t kill Han Solo and get to live.

There have also been leaks that claim Kylo Ren will assemble some sort of army – The Knights of Ren – and will be working towards his mission to bring his version of order to the galaxy.
But, there will be many former foes standing in his way.
Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) recently confirmed that he would be returning for the final film, while Abrams gave away one of the biggest spoilers on the first day of filming.
The photo Abrams posted is too blurry to make out any of the actors. The scene might feature Finn (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley), but it’s too hard to make out. But for Abrams, starting filming for Episode IX was both exciting and sad after Carrie Fisher’s (Princess Leia) passing in late 2016.

Bittersweet starting this next chapter without Carrie, but thanks to an extraordinary cast and crew, we are ready to go. Grateful for @riancjohnson and special thanks to George Lucas for creating this incredible world and beginning a story of which we are lucky to be a part. #IX
“Bittersweet starting this next chapter without Carrie, but thanks to an extraordinary cast and crew, we are ready to go,” Abrams wrote alongside the image.
Abrams revealed that Fisher would be a part of Star Wars: Episode IX. The actress died shortly after finishing scenes for The Last Jedi. Abrams will use extra footage from the previous movie, The Force Awakens, to bring Fisher back. As far as her character’s storyline is concerned, Abrams has not said how they adjusted it in light of her death.
Fortunately, fans do not have to worry about Abrams using CGI to bring General Leia Organa back into the fold. The director shot down earlier reports of CGI or recasting and will only use unused footage for Fisher’s scenes. We do not know how much footage they have of Fisher, but a few deleted scenes offer hints about Leia’s storyline in Episode IX.

The events at the end of The Last Jedi make it clear that the number one priority is rallying support against the First Order.
Star Wars Episode 9 is slated to be the last movie in the hit franchise. It is not scheduled for release until the winter of 2019.
