Rian Johnson Talks Star Wars: Episode VIII

At the end of the year, we will be getting a new Star Wars film. Directed by Rian Johnson, the plot of Episode VIII is still not known. Not only that, we don’t have an official title. But as we get closer, we will eventually learn more about the film.

Now, Johnson is talking a little bit about the movie while committing to staying vague and keeping things a secret. Check out what he had to say below.

‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ and ‘Episode IX’ Directors, Lucasfilm To Discuss Princess Leia’s Future

Star Wars The Force Awakens Trailer 20

The tragic passing of Carrie Fisher hit everyone pretty hard last week. Not only was she a major figure of the Star Wars universe, she was also a writer and someone who was able to overcome the darkest parts of her life to become an inspiration. It’s insensitive to talk about what will happen to her Princess Leia character (she will always be royalty) now that she is gone, but here we are.

There is a new report that says she was to have a larger role in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VIII and Episode IX. Rian Johnson (director of Episode VIII) and Colin Trevorrow (director of Episode IX) are set to discuss how Leia will fit into the future of the franchise with Lucasfilm in the coming weeks. Check out the full report below.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens FN-2999 (TR-8R)

Star Wars: The Force Awakens made some key changes to the dark faction we once knew as The Empire. Now known as the First Order, the group also added a few changes to the stormtroopers’ armor and weaponry and even gave a few high ranking ones a shiny chrome look.

Now it looks like we will be seeing more variations of the stormtrooper in the yet-to-be-titled Star Wars: Episode VIII. According to new rumors, a new never before seen stormtrooper will appear in the movie, but will still retain some similarities. Check out the full details on this rumor below.

Adam Driver Says The Stakes Are Higher In ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Movie Review

Production has already been completed for Star Wars: Episode VIII directed by Rian Johnson for quite some time, and even though the film probably won’t follow the same mystery box marketing method that we saw in The Force Awakens, it’s safe to say that Disney and Lucasfilm won’t reveal any plot details anytime soon. But we have learned that the film takes place just moments after The Force Awakens ended and that Lupita Nyong’o revealed that she hasn’t shot any of her scenes yet – despite Johnson sharing a photo of Maz Kanata during rehearsals.

Now we are learning a little bit more about the film’s tone from Adam Driver, who says the dark tone is different from the dark tone that we saw in The Empire Strikes Back and that the stakes are also higher for all the characters. Check out what he had to say below.

The Future Filmmakers panel at Star Wars Celebration in London this weekend not only included an appearance from directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who talked about the yet-to-be-titled Han Solo standalone film, but also Rian Johnson, who discussed the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VIII.

The latest Star Wars saga film, which has yet to receive an official title, recently wrapped shooting and will probably have some reshoots done in time for the release next year. But as Johnson gets ready to enter post-production, the director spoke a little bit about what we can expect to see from Episode VIII, including where and when it takes place, the tone, and much more. Check out here below what he and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy had to say.

Rian Johnson Teases Us With Two ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ Set Photos

Much of Star Wars: The Force Awakens success can be traced back to director J.J. Abrams using his mystery box formula to increase the anticipation of the sequel. Throughout that film’s marketing campaign, fans were treated to teasers that didn’t reveal much and some photos that didn’t provide any details. This only heightened the anticipation as fans wanted to know more, studying very single frame of the teaser to find any hints of anything resembling a spoiler. Now, with characters already being established and Rian Johnson at the helm for the currently untitled Episode VIII, we can probably expect something a little different when it comes who what is being shared.

Johnson is already halfway through the production of Star Wars: Episode VIII, and with a couple more weeks left, the filmmaker has been having some fun sharing some production photos. Of course, they are nothing too spoilerly. Check out two set photos here below.

‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ Release Pushed Back Seven Months To December 2017

Star Wars: Episode VIII Delayed

Scheduling changes for films come as no surprise in the industry. As we have seen when Star Wars: The Force Awakens announced that it would open on December 18, 2015, studios rescheduled the release of some of their tentpole films to an earlier or later date. Given the huge box office success that The Force Awakens has become, it makes sense that Disney would want to release more Star Wars films in the month of December.

Originally scheduled for a May 26, 2017 release, it should come as no surprise that the Rian Johnson-directed Star Wars: Episode VIII has now been pushed back to a December 2017 release. Check out what other movies are affected by this change after the jump.

J.J. Abrams: ‘Star Wars’ Episode VIII Script Finished; Talks Building The New Trilogy
eelyajekiM   |  

Star Wars The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley and director J.J. Abrams

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is just weeks away from its highly anticipated release. While we still know very little about the film itself, we know that Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac will all return to reprise their roles as Rey, Finn, and Poe, respectively, in the planned sequels. Director J.J. Abrams recently talked about how he learned from his past mistakes to perfect the script for the new Star Wars film. Also he revealed that the script for Episode VIII has been completed, and talked what what it was like to build a new Star Wars trilogy in a new interview with Wired.

Building that chemistry between between actors and director is one thing that looks like it will consistently change as the franchise grows. So it was key that Abrams found the right people who would be able to work together throughout these changes. Below, you will see what Abrams had to say about casting the film trilogy, especially when he’s only directing the first installment, and helping Rian Johnson (Looper, The Brothers Bloom), who’s taking over for Episode VIII, with his story while staying true to his vision.
