  1. 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.
  2. Official discussion thread for Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi
  3. The first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was screened to convention goers at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando on 14 April 2017. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) is the only only character with dialogue in the trailer, which also shows scenes of Rey practicing her lightsaber moves. Although the trailer does not reveal much, Luke's words hint that he no longer believes that the Jedi should be the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy. Captain Phasma was also shown, presumably meting out some Empire Strikes Back style retribution. Kylo Renn appears to have dumped his helmet as we see it shattered on the floor, although the trailer alludes to him still being a major villain for the film. General Leia Organa is also seen, confirming previous speculation that she would play a pivotal role in the film, guiding the Resistance forces. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is scheduled for release on 15 December 2017.
  4. According to Making Star Wars, they have confirmed rumors that Tom Hardy is making an appearance in Episode 8. He will apparently be playing a stormtrooper. The rest of the info is kind of spoiler-y, so check the article if you so wish. Considering the various cameos in Episode 7 (and the two royals already said to be in Ep. 8), it's not much of a stretch to believe that this is real. So what do we think of Hardy in Star Wars?

    Episode VIII leaks more plot snippets

    An alleged leak from Star Wars Episode VIII has provided new rumored plot details and snippets of action. While these are unconfirmed rumors, please consider them to be spoilers - you have been warned! Firstly, a leak on Reddit has revealed a potential title for Episode VIII; a video that bears the logo of upcoming Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 shows the title of Episode VIII to be Star Wars: Fall of the Resistance. Fans are divided on the title which point towards the often-hinted at darker nature of the second film of the sequel trilogy, but sceptics are keen to point out that it all seems a bit fishy and is most likely a fake. Making Star Wars reports that photos from the Malin Head set in Ireland appear to show several figures dressed in black, with costumes similar to that worn by Kylo Ren. It is claimed that these may be the Knights of Ren, and are hot on the heels of Luke Skywalker now that he has been located at the end of The Force Awakens. An eye-witness also claims to have seen Luke and Rey on Ahch-To as they are confronted by Kylo and the Knights of Ren. This is a scene which apparently shows how much of a badass Luke has now become as he fights with both the Force and a green-bladed lightsaber which is presumably the same one he used in Return of the Jedi. Star Wars Episode VIII will be released on 15 December 2017.

    Leaked Episode VIII plot fuels rumors

    This article contains potential spoilers; read on at your own risk! The Star Wars Episode VIII rumor mill has received further fuel to the fire after an alleged plot line has leaked onto the internet. Sceptics remain unconvinced, but the premise of this leaked plotline does seem to back up previous hints that director Rian Johnson's vision for Episode VIII was going to result in new concepts not seen in Star Wars before. The big rumor this time concerns the origins of Dasy Ridley's character Rey, whose origins have already been subject to much speculation. The reason given for Rey's mysterious parentage is because she is "a child of the Force", like Anakin Skywalker. The rumor also states that there would be no mention of midiclorians so there is no need to panic on that front, but Rey may be a reincarnation of the Chosen One. Apparently Luke first travels to the original Jedi Temple where he is found in The Force Awakens to research and better understand the phenomenon, where he communes with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda. It is implied that the Chosen One is repeatedly reborn by the Force, and always has the potential to fall to the Dark Side, as happened with Anakin Skywalker. Rey being a child of the Force explains why she already appears to be quite powerful even without any training, just as Anakin was able to win a podrace and down a Trade Federation cruiser in The Phantom Menace, using his instincts. As always, these rumors have not been confirmed by anybody official, and are unlikely to garner any attention from Disney or Lucasfilm representatives, and should be taken with a pinch of salt.
  7. Daisy Ridley, the actress who portrays Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars Episode VIII has revealed that she knows the identities of her characters parents, as she put an end to speculation that Rey's mother would be Jyn Erso from upcoming anthology film Rogue One. There has been much speculation surrounding the Rey's parentage, and this has remained one of the unanswered mysteries of the Star Wars sequels. Additionally, director JJ Abrams added further fuel to the fire by revealing that Rey's parents are apparently not present in The Force Awakens. Abrams remained cryptic about the truth, however, stating only that "I can’t possibly say in this moment who they are. But I will say it is something that Rey thinks about, too." This would appear to rule out the big three, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo, meaning that Rey and Kylo Ren may not be related as many fans have speculated. Update: JJ Abrams has since clarified his statement by telling Entertainment Weekly that Rey "doesn’t discover [her parents] in Episode VII. Not that they may not already be in her world". So, it is once again open season on speculation in that area. Despite claiming to know who Rey's parents are Ridley does not seem to think it is that big a deal anyway, instead focusing on the story of Rey finding her own place in the present. Star Wars Episode VIII is said to have a darker tone than The Force Awakens, but has not revealed whether her character will indeed become a fully-fledged Jedi after her meeting with Luke Skywalker. Rogue One is due in cinemas 16 December 2016, with Star Wars Episode VIII releasing on 15 December 2017.
  8. Caution: Potential Star Wars Episode VIII major spoilers lurk within this article; read on at your own risk! If you're hoping to remain spoiler free for Star Wars Episode VIII then you may need to stop reading as new rumors have surfaced regarding the role that Jurassic Park star Laura Dern will play, and how this will affect other established characters. Consider yourself warned! The new rumors point towards Dern's character being a high-ranking officer or politician working with the Resistance, and she is said to have an "antagonistic relationship" with Oscar Isaac's Resistance ace-pilot, Poe Dameron. According to Latino-Review a key scene involving Dern comes after Carrie Fisher's General Leia is gravely injured in a First Order attack, while other scenes hint at Dameron deliberately disobeying orders. Further speculation about the character suggests that Dern's character may even be a political rival of Leia, and wants to see a strong central government rather than increased sovereignty for individual systems. This could conceivably tie-in with upcoming Claudia Gray novel Bloodline, which is said to see Leia face-off against political rivals in a pre-The Force Awakens setting where the New Republic is trying to counter growing threats to peace in the galaxy. Star Wars Episode VIII is due for release on 15 December 2017.

    New aliens captured!

    So Episode 8 is currently filming in Croatia... and of course, a few people caught photos on their phones... And they leaked online. If you're curious, look on. If not, don't. Episode 8 aliens
  10. Bencio Del Toro, who has been a rumored link to Star Wars for some time now has been officially announced as a cast member for Star Wars Episode VIII. His role has not been revealed, but previous rumors have pointed towards his character being a villian. Del Toro has previously won an Oscar, Golden Globe, and a Bafta for his role in 2000's Traffic, and has also been seen in The Usual Suspects and Snatch. Laura Dern, who is perhaps most well known for her performance in Jurassic Park was also announced for Episode VIII, but her role has also not been confirmed. She has previously picked up a Golden Globe for the HBO comedy series Enlightened, and can also be seen in the rebooted Twin Peaks. Kelly Marie Tran is a relative newcomer who has also been confirmed. She has made numerous appearances in videos for CollegeHumor and has also had a role on the TV adaptation of About A Boy. Confirmed returning cast members from The Force Awakens include Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Anthony Daniels, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis. Rian Johnson's Star Wars Episode VIII started filming on 15 February 2015 and will be released on 15 December 2017.

    Episode VIII update: Space Bear

    With filming now under way on Star Wars Episode VIII, the internal production codename for the lastest installment has been leaked in a picture tweeted by Carrie Fisher. "Space Bear" has been confirmed as the internal working title, which is unlikely to have any bearing (please excuse the pun) on the plot of the movie. Working titles, such as Return of the Jedi's "Blue Harvest" are typically used to mask the identity of a production to avoid unwanted attention. With the success of The Force Awakens behind them, the production team are undoubtedly expecting fierce interest from fans and members of the press hoping to catch a big scoop, and with that in mind the security team of Episode VIII have vowed to take down any camera-laden aerial drones they spot hovering over filming locations. They intend to use firearms and their own defensive drones in order to fend off this Attack of the Drones. Filming started back at the Irish island of Skellig Michael, home of Luke Skywalker's mysterious solitude on Ahch-To. To minimise the time spent in this precious location filming will reportedly move to Ceann Sibeal, also in Ireland, in April. There has also been a set constructed at Pinewood Studios that will serve as the island retreat, so we can definitely expect to spend more time with Luke on Ahch-To, which seems to be the sequel trilogy's answer to Dagobah. It was announced some time ago that some filming will be completed on location in Croatia, and new reports suggest that there may be a chase scene filmed in the historic town of Dubrovnik, which has notably also been seen on television as the city of King's Landing in HBO's adaptation of Game of Thrones. Dubrovnik is likely to be portraying a new planet or location we have not seen before, although some have speculated that the city which was beseiged in 1991 would make a good fit for a war-ravaged Naboo.
  12. I have not watched it (even if there are no spoilers, technically, I prefer to wait to watch it all together next year)... but in case anyone out there IS interested:
  13. Captain Phasma, the chrome-clad commander of First Order forces on Starkiller Base will be returning in Star Wars Episode VIII, Phasma actress Gwendoline Christie has confirmed. She was quizzed on the red carpet for the 2016 SAG Awards, where she stated "I will be in the next Star Wars movie". The female leader of the stormtroopers did not have as large a role in The Force Awakens as had been expected, and the character had apparently met her untimely demise after being forced into a garbage chute in Starkiller Base as the Resistance made their attack. Fans had already speculated that since we never actually saw Captain Phasma's death it was likely that she had managed to make an escape, and it now looks like this was the case. Hopefully this time Phasma's role is expanded to more than just an incidental commanding chrometrooper with a cape. Star Wars Episode VIII will be released on 15 December 2017.

    Episode VIII filming has begun

    Filming has officially begun on the latest episode of the Star Wars saga. Episode VIII, which has not yet been given an official title was due to commence principle photography in January, but had apparently been delayed. In a discussion with investors, Disney CEO Bob Iger said "Filming of Star Wars: Episode VIII, the next chapter of the legendary saga, has just commenced and it will be in theaters December 2017. And production of Episode IX, a 2019 release, has also begun." We presume this means that Star Wars Episode IX has entered it's pre-production phase now that Rian Johnson's Episode VIII is filming. Not a lot is currently known about either of these two movies, aside from some key members of the cast from The Force Awakens who have been confirmed as returning. Iger has also confirmed that Rogue One has almost completed at this point, and the as yet untitled Han Solo movie will be starting production soon. The current Star Wars release schedule looks a little like this: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - 16 December 2016 Star Wars Episode VIII - 15 December 2017 Untitled Han Solo film - 25 May 2018 Star Wars Episode IX - 2019
  15. The release of Star Wars Episode VIII has been delayed, according to official sources. The film had previously been announced as being due in May, but new announcements peg the follow up to The Force Awakens as another winter release, now set for 15 December 2017. No reason or comment has been given for the shift of release date, although rumours blame script problems like those that have reportedly beset Rogue One and The Force Awakens before it. Incidentally Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy sequel is due for release in May 2017, so Disney executives may have been keen to avoid the two future blockbusters diluting each other's box office take. Meanwhile, the next Pirates of the Caribbean film has been shuffled into Episode VIII's original mid-May slot, and Marvel's Spider-Man reboot has taken PotC's old place in July. Star Wars Episode VIII is currently still in the preproduction stage with filming due to commence next month, Rian Johnson is directing, with Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman producing.

    Star Wars Episode VIII

    Star Wars Episode VIII is due to be released
  17. Actress Daisy Ridley has told interviewers that the script she has seen for Star Wars Episode VIII looks "very good", as preparation begins for the start of principle photography. When asked by Variety.com if she had read the script for the sequel to The Force Awakens, Ridley, who portrays Rey in the movie, responded with "I have. It’s very good; very good" but refused to give any further clues as to what may happen in the movie. Some scenes have allegedly already been filmed for Episode VIII; notably on the Irish island Skellig Michael which we see at the end of The Force Awakens, and main filming is due to begin in January 2016 in order to meet the May 2017 release date Lucasfilm/Disney have set. Pinewood Studio has already revealed that they plan on shooting down any drones that are sent to spy on filming of the new movie, so we can expect a similar level of secrecy for the sequel. Rian Johnson is the director for Episode VIII and is also involved with the script for Episode IX. Johnson's recent work includes the gritty time-travel-ish film Looper, and it is reasonable to expect VII to be darker than it's predecessor in the same way that The Empire Strikes Back was darker than A New Hope. Returning for the next instalment are a host of familiar faces from The Force Awakens; Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), John Boyega (Finn), and Daisy Ridley (Rey) have all been confirmed, along with Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker). It is also expected that Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Andy Serkis (Supreme Leader Snoke), Domhnall Gleeson’s (General Hux), will all be making a reappearance and actor Benicio Del Toro has already been confirmed as being newly cast for the sequel, although it is currently unknown what role this is.

    Naming Episode 8 (and 9)

    So I thought it'd be interested to bring this up for discussion. Whether the rest of the new trilogy will follow similar naming conventions (at least, in how I see it). So for Episode I, we had The Phantom Menace. Which at first, was quite ambiguous. I mean, we had no idea what or who this might be referring to. Then Episode II and III come along, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, respectively, and their titles really leave nothing up to the imagination. They basically tell us what is happening. The clones will attack; the Sith will finally get their revenge. We have Episode IV: A New Hope. And again, it's a bit obtuse. What is this new hope? Why do we need one? Etc. etc. And once again, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, for Episodes V and VI. Telling us exactly what the deal is. So when the title for Episode VII was revealed to be The Force Awakens, we again had to wonder, what does this mean? Has the Force been dormant? Is it awakening in a person? Rather like the titles for 1 and 4, it presents a few interpretations. So then I ask... do we think the titles for Episode VIII and IX will go the way of 2 and 3, and 5 and 6, and give us a more concrete idea of what's happening? Do you want them to, so they fit the 'formula' set in the previous two trilogies? Or could you care less about the titles? I have to say, at the end of the day, I just want the movies to be good. But it would be nice if the titles kind of followed suit, paying homage to what has gone before.
  20. Star Wars: Rogue One is the first of the Star Wars anthology films that are set aside from the main series of movies, while still residing within the same canon universe, and new rumors have recently come to light that suggest that work is under way to construct a secret rebel base in Cardington Shed 2 in Bedfordshire, England. Shed 2 was the birthplace of early British airships, and in more recent years has acted a stage for filming Inception, Harry Potter, and in 1976 it housed the hidden rebel alliance base on Yavin IV. Leaked images from starwars7news.com appear to show a familiar location taking shape, suggesting that movie history may be about to repeat itself. Will Rogue One take us back to Yavin IV? It certainly looks that way. Other rumors also point to potential Rogue One spoilers, such as Birth.Movies.Death reporting that Darth Vader will make an appearance in the movie although not as it's main protagonist, and Bloody Disgusting say a source has informed them that Ben Mendelsohn will be playing an Imperial Moff who will be the main villian. As for Star Wars Episode VIII, rumor has it that actor Benicio Del Toro, who has recently been seen as The Collector in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, has been approached for the role of a villian. It is expected that the majority of The Force Awakens' new main cast members will be returning for the movie, which is being directed by Rian Johnson and produced by Ram Bergman and Kathleen Kennedy. Rogue One is scheduled for a 16 December 2016 release, while Episode VIII is due on 26 May 2017.

Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy will produce Episode VIII with Ram Bergman, who also produced Looper, Brick, and Don Jon. The Force Awakens directer, JJ Abrams, will also act as executive producer.

  24. Didn't see anything updated in here, so figured I would start this thread so we have a place for all the rumors and hypothesis about the new movies. I think my biggest thing is this: if they don't follow the EU in SOME way, it would be like a huuuuge "EFF YOU" to all the fans that have read, and made the EU so crazy successful. Just hope that ol George retains enough power to keep Disney from screwin' with the entire universe.
  25. American director Rian Johnson has been hired to direct Star Wars Episode VIII.It seems JJ Abrams is not sticking around after Star Wars Episode VII, and a new face has been cast as the director for the next instalment of the Star Wars saga. Rian Johnson, director of 2012's sci-fi action thriller Looper starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis, has also recently won a DGA award for directing an episode of the hit TV show Breaking Bad.
