Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi *SPOILERS*

Episode VII has only just started filming, but the Episode VIII stories have begun already. This is from ComingSoon.net ...
Rian Johnson to write Star Wars Episode VIII
In a major update to the future of the Star Wars saga on the big screen, Deadline is reporting that Brick, Looper, and The Brothers Bloom helmer Rian Johnson is making plans to write and direct Star Wars: Episode VIII. Although the outlet is also reporting that he'll direct Star Wars: Episode IX, TheWrap claims that Johnson will only provide a treatment for the saga-finale and that a director for that final film has not yet been decided on. We'll update with official word as soon as it's available.

Johnson joins a seemingly ever-growing slate of top directors that are setting lightspeed coordinates for a galaxy far, far away. J.J. Abrams is currently filming Star Wars: Episode VII while both Gareth Edwards (Godzilla, Monsters) and Josh Trank (Chronicle) are planning to helm solo films. The plan is for a new Star Wars film to hit every year beginning with Episode VII on December 18, 2015.

While it was going to be pretty epic to only have six months to wait between Rogue One and Episode VIII, I think this move is ultimately going to be better for both films, giving Rogue One the breathing space it needs to be its own thing and not just the appetizer for Ep VIII, and more time for the production team to polish the next chapter of the trilogy. Plus, Christmas releases mean good business for licensees, lots of retailer support and hopefully broader product offerings for us to enjoy. I'm happy to wait a bit longer.

As it is, I worry that Rogue One may suffer a bit from not being the film casual movie goers are expecting next; 'Wait, where's Rey? Where's Finn and Kylo Ren? What's going on?' Having more time to be accepted and run its course in cinemas and licensing without Ep VIII promotion breathing down its neck can only be good for R1 in my opinion.

Well said, Strone. Couldn't agree more. I was starting to worry that having two Star Wars films in less than six months could lead to a bit of fatigue (not to mention wallet-strain when it comes to the merchandise) - so having them a year apart is much nicer.

It's going to be a fun couple of Christmases!

Possible title: "Echoes of the Dark Side."

I like it.

Quite cool, like TESB.

But...

MAJOR LEAK SPOILERS!!

...If, according to leaks...

...Rey is Anakin reincarnated... that's pretty much the new trilogy over for me.

The thing that made the OT great was that it was a traditional hero's story... with an element of the supernatural (the mystical "Force"). Later, we had Force Ghosts/Midichlorians/Virgin births/"Chosen Ones"... Now we (possibly) have multiple lives, multiple Chosen Ones, multiple Force Ghosts etc.

I'm taking the leaks with a grain of salt, of course. Just hoping it's not true.
