“Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker” Reshoots

#Wired magazine is reporting from reliable sources that some reshoots are being filmed for “#StarWars IX: #TheRiseOfSkywalker”. Two sources are reporting that “Black Park” in the UK has been closed off for either reshoots or pickups, with an X-wing fighter being part of the additional shots. It’s also possible that the shoot may go into September, which won’t leave a lot of time for the film’s December release.
