Rumor has it that Doctor Who and The Crown star, Matt Smith will join the cast of Star Wars: Episode IX. Sci-Fi fanboys and fangirls alike can squee in delight as the 11th Doctor will play a key role in the next movie.
Walt Disney Pictures have released few details about their newest production. It is not known whether Smith’s role will be on the Empire’s side or the Rebels. Returning for Episode IX is Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, and Adam Driver. Other newcomers are Keri Russell, Richard E. Grant, Naomi Ackie, and recently announced, Dominic Monaghan.
Some of the fan favorites to be reprising their roles is Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and Carrie Fisher. Producers will use unreleased footage from previous films to fill in the gaps after Carrie Fisher’s untimely death.
