JJ Abrams Is Casting a New Character For STAR WARS: EPISODE IX

Star Wars Episode IX Reportedly Is Casting Black Female Lead

Though it's yet to even begin filming, Star Wars: Episode IX is already the subject of intense debate online - primarily due to the alleged casting calls put out by Lucasfilm.

Star Wars: Episode IX (directed by J.J. Abrams) is set to be in theaters on December 20th, 2019.

We discuss the increasing backlash against The Last Jedi and what that means for the Star Wars franchise going forward, as well as the fandom.

The casting director for Episode IX is reportedly looking for an "ethnic female" who can play the part of a character named "Caro".


Caro is further described as a "leader and problem solve".

These two casting notices seemingly further fuel fans' speculation that the upcoming "Star Wars" movie may be focusing on previously-unseen Jedi training a new generation in the ways of the Force. "All this comes to her effortlessly".

It doesn't appear that this so-called Caro has an easy-to-identify parallel in the Star Wars Expanded Universe, meaning she could very well end up being a wholly original creation in the script of Episode IX. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and unsafe criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes.
