Episode VIII Delayed Until December 2017

Yesterday, StarWars.com announced that Star Wars: Episode VIII – originally scheduled for a May 2017 release – will now debut on December 15th, 2017. No reasons were given for the delay.

Personally, I don’t see this as a bad thing. While it’ll be hard to wait another seven months for the next installment in the saga, the extra time can only help ensure a quality film. The Force Awakens suffered a similar delay, and that worked out pretty darn well.
