In a recent Twitter reply to an excited fan, Rian Johnson confirmed that the "old info" of him writing any sort of treatment for Episode IX, is incorrect.
What this means for the future of the ninth installment is unknown. Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that Leia will not be in Episode IX which called for a rewrite of the script, a rewrite that obviously excluded Rian Johnson. Episode IX has received the release date of May 24, 2019.
