Star Wars Celebration Europe is over and while we didn’t get a title for Episode VIII like we hoped, we still learned a few things about the film from writer/director Rian Johnson. It’s not much—Disney is clearly playing all things Star Wars incredibly close to the vest—but it does offer a few clues to what the film…
This weekend, a galaxy far, far away comes to London, England, for Star Wars Celebration Europe. It’s a three-day, official Star Wars convention and we expect lots of awesome things to happen there—but most of all, we expect to learn a great deal about Episode VIII, Rogue One, the Han Solo movie, and more.
Rian Johnson is nearing the end of filming on Star Wars Episode VIII and, for the director, that’s now actually sunk in as being real. That’s because his movie has finally reached that all too important Star Wars milestone: merchandise.
Oblivion State is a British urban exploration forum, and several of its members came across a really exciting find: the Millennium Falcon film set for the upcoming eighth Star Wars film.
One of the most jaw-dropping shots of the first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was a group of Imperial walkers storming a beach. They obviously weren’t the same as the AT-ATs from The Empire Strikes Back, but what were they? Now we know.
Three actors get off a plane in Belfast. They’re there to film scenes for Rian Johnson’s Star Wars Episode VIII and the paparazzi are all over it. The flash bulbs are flying. When the lights fade, we’re left with one major question. What are these three specific actors filming?
J.J. Abrams had a lot of fun filming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, putting friends and famous people all over the film in cameos. Some we noticed, others we didn’t, but it now sounds like director Rian Johnson may be continuing that tradition on Star Wars Episode VIII.
When Rey stands in front of Luke Skywalker, long lost lightsaber in hand, it’s kind of impossible not to be beside yourself with excitement for what comes next. And yet, co-star Oscar Isaac somehow managed to make Star Wars Episode VIII, sound even more exciting.

That changed recently—the production has shifted to Dubrovnik, Croatia. Outside filming means spy photos and in them, we get our first look at some new aliens and ships.
Star Wars isn’t Star Wars without the work of Ralph McQuarrie. The artist and designer conceived much of the look of the original trilogy in the ‘70s and ‘80s.

The stars are hyping it. The director has been teasing it. It’s really not that far off.

Fans hoping to get two Star Wars movies in a row, just six months apart, are in for a bit of a let down. Rian Johnson’s Star Wars Episode VIII has been pushed back from its May 2017 release date. To December 15, 2017, to be exact.

Yes, The Force Awakens mirrors the original Star Wars, and J.J. Abrams thinks it had…
If you were given only one word to describe your feeling after watching the original Star Wars trilogy, “Delightful” is a good one. That’s also the word J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan focused on when writing Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which seems like a good sign.
