Just saw this, looks like Disney have been shuffling a few things around, not wanting them to clash.

So now that Rogue One is out... time to look ahead to Ep. 8!

 

I saw something the other day from Kathleen Kennedy that we might get a glimpse of it "soon." They are, of course, going to let Rogue One have the spotlight for a bit. But it may arrive as soon as spring. Which seems to jive with how they dealt with Ep. 7. Sprinkling teasers throughout the spring and summer until the release in winter.

I too don't think they'll release anything about Episode VIII until Rogue One has had a good run in cinemas, no sense in taking the spotlight away from it just yet.

I imagine the trailer will be show up attached to a Marvel movie next year.

Yeah likely.

Just as long as they don't make us wait through Monday Night Football again for the last trailer/tickets going on sale lol.

I'll be negative nancy on this one....not the most creative title.

 "the last jedi".....Yoda thought that....and he was wrong.  I just think they could have come up with a little more original title.

Oh, man, the speculation that is happening across the Internet with this thing haha.

 

It could mean anything, or more than one thing, from a different point of view, whatever. I'm not all that bothered who the last Jedi is/will be.

 

 

And really, do all the other films have creative titles?? They're all sort of slightly vague while also being nail on.

Yeah I know, personally I think it means that Luke is just the last of the old Jedi. Doesn't mean there wouldn't be a new Jedi order.

I'm not sure if anything has been confirmed, but I've heard rumors that the first trailer will be airing during the super bowl.  So yea, might have to wait through another football game Mara, lol.

well, I happen to notice in one of the other threads about the Reddit leak and what was thought to maybe be the

title of eps. 8   "Fall of the Resistance" didn't sound so bad and was a bit more creative than "Last Jedi", but I've come up with a few more possible titles...see what all of you think. :p

How about....

Star Wars Vlll.....First Order of Business

             or

Kylo Ren and Stimpy   :lol:

Days of Rebellion / Knights of Ren ( or Knights of Wheat and Rye or even of Correllian ale)

           or

Star Wars Vlll: The Quest for even more obscene amounts of Money   :D

Haha. I had seen that rumor too. But it wasn't to be. I kind of figured; it's too early. I can't remember when we got our first teaser to Episode 7.

But I would have watched this game anyway. It's the Super Bowl! (Even though the commercials kind of sucked this year).

Yeah. I mean, even in the opening crawl for Force Awakens he's called "the last Jedi."

Well, foreign languages that differentiate between the singular and plural have confirmed that it is the plural Jedi.

So there was a quote from JJ the other day where he basically said Mark's performance in Last Jedi is Oscar-worthy.

Take that how you will. :p

Yeah I came online to post just that. It's definitely intriguing but a sadly doubt that the Oscars will recognise Star Wars for one of the big awards. :p

Yeah. I know.

And J.J. could be exaggerating. :p

I figured it would be unlikely. But confirmation is a little disappointing nonetheless.

 

But we do have a teaser/trailer!

FOR SHAME.

 

You are forgiven. <3

 

I think the most interesting part is the potential for the balance of the Force. Not light, or dark, or white or black.

Sort of I think what conclusion Luke was coming to towards the end of the EU.

 

However, I am unconvinced that the last line of the trailer, that "the Jedi must fall" is spoken by Luke, as most people seem to think. (All sorts of theories of why they think he has given up on the Jedi). Because it doesn't sound like Mark to me.

But maybe I just need to watch it more. :p

Lots of stuff swirling out there that we might get gray Jedi in TLJ...       interesting theory, based on the trailer, to be sure.

 

(Though I still don't think that is Luke speaking at the end :p but what do I know)

    • Doubt cast on Rian Johnson's Star Wars trilogy

      Before Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi was released, it was announced that the director was already working on a new Star Wars trilogy of his own, that would be set apart from The Skywalker Saga, much like Rogue One. However, after the mixed reaction to his stab at the main series, and the subsequent lackluster box office performance of Solo, things went quiet on the anthology film front.
      Recently, Johnson was caught on the red carpet at the Toronto Film Festival, and was asked about his Star Wars project:
      This has cast further doubt on the fate of his trilogy, which was expected to pick up on a few of the seeds sown in The Last Jedi.
      In May 2019 several Star Wars film release dates were confirmed by Disney CEO Bob Iger, with the next spin-off film being pencilled in for 16 December 2022 and confirmed to be the David Benioff & DB Weiss project which is heavily rumoured to be set in the Old Republic era.
      Lucasfilm and Disney have yet to make any official statement about the status of Johnson's future in the Star Wars franchise, nor have they confirmed any details for the Star Wars movies set for release in 2024 and 2026.
    • Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

      Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the sequel to Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the second part of the sequel trilogy. The film will pick up immediately from the end of The Force Awakens with many cast members returning to reprise their roles.
      The title was officially announced on 23rd January 2017.
    • Admiral Ackbar actor disappointed by character's exit

      Tim Rose who played Admiral Ackbar in Return of the Jedi, The Force Awakens, and The Last Jedi has expressed his disappointment with the way his character was killed off in The Last Jedi.
      Rose was also disappointed that Ackbar, a fan favourite character by any standard, was not given a larger role in the sequel trilogy and was essentially used as a joke at the end of filming.
      Here's the full interview with YouTuber Jamie Stangroom (whose channel is well worth a subscribe, by the way):
       
    • New Star Wars movie release dates announced!

      Disney have revealed a schedule which pinpoints the movie release dates across their vast empire of brands, including Star Wars.
      Three Star Wars movies have been assigned release dates, but no further information accompanies the untitled movies. The movies are set for release in 2022, 2024, and 2026, which is a distinctive enough pattern that it isn't too much of a stretch to speculate that these are the Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy that was announced back in 2017.
      See also: Star Wars Movie Release Schedule
      Rian Johnson's last foray into Star Wars was the divisive second episode of the sequel trilogy, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and it is widely expected that his trilogy will pick up on some of the unresolved threads from that film.
      Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will release this December, leaving us with a three-year gap before the next Star Wars film hits the big screen.
