STAR WARS Episode VIII written and directed by LOOPER‘s Rian Johnson and executive produced by J.J. Abrams in now officially called:
STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI.
I dig it. And I also dig the fact that the red STAR WARS font, as opposed to the traditional yellow, will likely have everyone speculating until the film releases in December 2017. ANd remember “Jedi” can be singular OR plural. Ya know, like THE LAST SAMURAI.
THE LAST JEDI will be taking place directly after the events of THE FORCE AWAKENS instead of having a large time gap as per usual. It appears the film will heavily focus on Rey and Luke’s relationship and I’m still betting the Rey is in fact Luke’s offspring. Isn’t it obvious? I also imagine THE LAST JEDI will have a much darker tone similar to EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.
A few predictions:
- Rey is Luke’s daughter
- Snoke is Darth Plagueis
- Lando Calrissian will return
- Captain Phasma will be cooler
- There will NOT be a Death Star this time around
- Kylo Ren will throw a tantrum
STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI releases December 15th 2017
