Movie: Star Wars - The Last Jedi

From here: Star Wars: Episode VIII to Open December 15, 2017 | StarWars.com

Quote:
Today, Disney and Lucasfilm announced that Star Wars: Episode VIII, originally scheduled for release in summer 2017, will now debut on December 15, 2017.

The move follows the extraordinary success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was the first Star Wars movie to premiere outside the traditional summer blockbuster window and smashed numerous records, including biggest domestic and global debuts of all time as well as the biggest domestic second and third weekends, en route to becoming the highest grossing domestic release of all time with over $861.3 million and the third biggest global release ever with $1.886.7 billion.

Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: Episode VIII is currently in preproduction and will begin principal photography in London next month. Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman will produce and J.J. Abrams, Jason McGatlin, and Tom Karnowski will executive produce. Stay tuned for exciting updates in the coming weeks.

They realized their potential to cash in much larger in Dec when there is less summer competition. The movie has longer legs in the winter.

Not to mention Guardians of the Galaxy 2 comes out 3 weeks prior (to the original date), Disney probably doesn't want 2 space sagas going against each other, since they are from the same studio. I think moving it out is a good move, sad that we'll have to wait, but still a good move.

At least we get Rogue One this winter.

Sure they do. They need to do extensive research to make sure future story lines bear no resemblance to the EU.

The real question - Which one will come out first? Ep. VIII or the NSX?

Not even a question: We all know VIII will be out first.


NSX won't be released until Episode 69.

We are thrilled to announce Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran will join Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill and director Rian Johnson for Star Wars: Episode VIII, which begins shooting at London’s Pinewood Studio today. May the Force be with you, always
Quote:
Fans instantly started trying to guess where the new faces will fit in the "Star Wars" universe, and many speculated that Del Toro would be a Sith villain.

We won't get any real answers for a while. "Star Wars" producers are notoriously tight-lipped and the movie won't hit theaters until December 2017.

There may also be some hints in the "Star Wars" spinoff film "Rogue One," which opens this year on December 16.
Del Toro rocks

^ The one I saw wasn't even a teaser. It was the last 10 seconds of VII and a "hey, we're filming VIII now!!"
