Doctor Who's Matt Smith joins Star Wars: Episode IX



The Eleventh Doctor is travelling back to a long time ago in Star Wars: Episode IX!

Matt Smith, best known for his roles in Doctor Who and The Crown, is reportedly playing a key role in the upcoming JJ Abrams-directed Star Wars sequel currently being filmed in London.

Smith's not the first Doctor Who to appear in Star Wars. Tom Baker and David Tennant have appeared in Star Wars Rebels and The Clone Wars respectively.

Smith will join fellow Doctor Who co-star Richard E. Grant, Dominic Monaghan and Keri Russell, and returning cast members Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac and John Boyega.

As a lifelong fan of both franchises, I can't wait. Do you think Matt Smith will be a First Order officer or Rey's father? Let me know in the comments below.

Star Wars: Episode IX will be in cinemas December 2019.
