The filming for Episode IX is currently underway and yesterday it was announced that joining the cast was none other than Dominic Monaghan. You may know Dominic for his role as the hobbit, Merry, in The Lord of the Rings trilogy or his role in the hit show, Lost, which J.J Abrams, unsurprisingly, was a part of.
This is exciting news because first of all, Mr. Monaghan is going to be in a Star Wars movie. That’s awesome! Now he’ll have participated in two of the greatest franchises in the modern cinema era, The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars.
Secondly, I can’t wait to see what his role in the film will be. Undoubtedly he’ll have a smaller role but I’m sure it’ll be somewhat significant. Maybe he’ll play a Resistance officer of ally or maybe he’ll turn to the dark side and be a member of the First Order.
Whatever the case this is super exciting news and I can’t wait to share more Episode IX news with you all.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force be with you.
