J.J. Abrams is assembling his next Star Wars team, and he has enlisted veteran art director Paul Inglis to take a trip to a galaxy far, far away.
Inglis will serve as supervising art director for Star Wars: Episode IX, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The film website Omega Underground first reported the news.
Inglis has plenty of experience with world building, with credits including the first season of HBO’s Game of Thrones, Ridley Scott’s Prometheus and last year’s Blade Runner 2049. This will be his first Star Wars film.
Abrams is penning the script with Chris Terrio and is directing the movie, which has a planned June start date. Disney and Lucasfilm have slated Episode IX for a Dec. 20, 2019, release.
Inglis is repped by WME.
