In news that obviously made me fight back a couple tears, the next instalment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy has been pushed back a couple months: Episode VIII will hit theatres on December 15, 2017 instead of the previously announced summer 2017.
As per StarWars.com:
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.
Kinda bummed about this, but I’d rather have it delayed than have it rushed.
Geek Erik out!
