Begun, this production has.
Star Wars: Episode VIII is still a ways off, with a scheduled release date of December 15th, 2017. Even so though, that has to get you excited for what’s to come. And we actually did get a little taste of what the first minutes of the movie might be like.
Since director Rian Johnson announces a pretty proud “welcome to episode VIII” at the close of the clip there, it’s probably pretty safe to assume that the next film in the series that’s not called Rogue One will pick up right where Episode VII left off. No, that’s not much to go on, but at least it’s something, no?
