John Boyega may have confirmed that Episode 9 occurs one year after the events in The Last Jedi. According to an interview with Empire magazine, John Boyega may have confirmed a time jump of one year between the two movies. In the spring, Boyega also hinted at a time jump when he stated that he needed to grow his hair before filming his scenes for Episode 9.
Boyega was asked, on Twitter, about the news that dropped over the weekend, and he said that he's been so busy that he barely remembers the interview. Although outlets are reporting that episode 9 is confirmed to pick up after The Last Jedi, it is still not confirmed that the time gap will only be one year.
