Keri Russell joins the cast of Star Wars Episode IX

Variety are reporting that Keri Russell has joined the cast of Star Wars: Episode IX.

Russell previously worked with Episode IX director JJ Abrams on Mission Impossible III and prior to that she played the lead role in the Abrams co-created TV series Felicity.

Variety are reporting that the role calls for action-heavy fight scenes - something that Russell has experience with in both Mission Impossible III and also Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Alongside Keri Russell, Star Wars: Episode IX will star Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Adam Driver and Kelly Marie Tran. It will be directed by J J Abrams based on a story by Abrams and Chris Terrio. It is due to hit UK cinemas on 20th December 2019.
