Naomi Ackie To Star In STAR WARS: EPISODE IX
Unbelievably exciting news: Disney and Lucasfilm have this week announced the cast of the hugely anticipated Star Wars: Episode IX, and we are thrilled to finally reveal that our wonderful NAOMI ACKIE will star as a new character in the film!
We are all ridiculously excited but, as I'm sure you would expect, that is all we can say for now. Keep your eyes peeled over the coming months as we reveal more info about her character and the film, as soon as we are allowed.
Naomi will join the world-famous cast of returning characters for 'Episode 9', including Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o and Domhnall Gleeson. Mark Hamill, whose Luke Skywalker seemingly died in Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, will also return; as will Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia, with previously unreleased footage shot before she died in 2016.
J.J. Abrams is back to direct and John Williams will return to score the film. We literally can't wait!
Huge congrats, Naomi!
