The nine-year-old has previously shared his love for the epic sci-fi saga, and he continued to profess his obsession to Colin Trevorrow, who is directing his upcoming film The Book of Henry as well as the much-anticipated Star Wars: Episode IX.

"I asked if I could be a Baby Ewok, Baby Chewbacca, or a flashback of someone," Jacob tells People magazine. "He (Colin) said that he'll try to get me a part."

While no casting news for Episode IX, due for release in 2019, has been confirmed, filming has already begun on Star Wars: Episode VIII, which will see the return of stars John Boyega and Daisy Ridley among others.

Episode VIII, directed by Rian Johnson, is slated for release in December, 2017.
