The director appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” Wednesday to talk about working on the sci-fi saga.

“I was terrified,” he said of directing “The Force Awakens”. “Luckily, I was surrounded by incredible people. We had a lot of fun. Being back for ‘Episode IX’ is as surreal as it gets and really exciting.”

Abrams also happily announced that he has a script for “Episode IX”.

“We have a script, which is a big deal for me. It starts shooting end of July,” Abrams said. “Having a script in advance is something I haven’t always been lucky enough to have. I’m writing this with [‘Argo’ writer] Chris Terrio, who is a genius, and I’m having a great time.”
