If you are new to the web page then learn on for the whole thing we all know thus far approximately Star Wars Episode VIII, however if you are conversant in the up to date information then scroll down for a few lately launched set pictures which we’ve got simply up to date the web page with.
Manufacturing has already began at the 8th episode, so one can pick out up the tale the place Episode VI ended. Major images began at London Pinewood Studios on February 15, which used to be marked with the movie’s first reputable teaser (even if we are not positive you’ll be able to in point of fact name it that).
So, what do we think to peer from Episode VIII? If you have not but noticed The Drive Awakens, a) what’s flawed with you? and b) spoilers will lie in advance. Large ones. We are speaking large, planet-destroying spoilers. Were given it? Just right.
Episode VIII name and release date
Star Wars: Episode VIII will hit cinemas on December 15 2017, after being driven again from its preliminary release date of Would possibly 26 the similar yr. It approach ready an additional seven months, however we did assume that the unique time frame used to be a bit of formidable for a movie of this scale.
What we nonetheless have no idea is the name, so get started your guesses. To apply the trend of previous mid-trilogy episodes (if we are taking this as a brand new trilogy), perhaps we will be able to be expecting a definitely ominous name like ‘Revenge of the 3rd Order’, ‘Kylo Ren’s Dangerous Day’, or ‘Chewie Will get Even’.
In advance this yr, a film casting name web site it seems that found out the movie’s running name: Area Undergo.
Most likely ‘Chewie Will get Even’ is not this sort of ludicrous prediction in the end.
Episode VIII casting
JJ Abrams might be hopping off the director’s chair and turning in the reins to Rhian Johnson, best possible recognized for writing and directing Brick and Looper (and a couple of episodes of Breaking Dangerous). Abrams will keep as government manufacturer, then again.
It is been showed that all the unique forged individuals (bar Harrison Ford) shall be coming round again. Becoming a member of them this time is Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern, and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran.
Episode VIII: what we all know of the tale to this point
Little is understood approximately what VIII’s tale will cling, however we do recognize that it’s going to pick out up immediately after The Drive Awakens, with Rey having found out Luke Skywalker’s whereabouts, as showed by way of the teaser trailer.
The Drive Awakens left many questions unanswered. Who’s Rey in reality? Is Finn Drive delicate? What is with C-3PO’s pink arm? Why is R2-D2, the bearer of all wisdom who refuses to inform any person anything else, this sort of dick?
Colin Trevorrow, who will probably be directing Episode IX, has already promised us a "profoundly pleasurable" solution to the thriller surrounding Rey’s oldsters.
"Rey is a personality that may be essential on this universe, now not simply within the context of The Pressure Awakens, however in all of the galaxy," he stated. "She merits it. We’re going to be sure that that solution is one thing that feels love it used to be one thing that came about a very long time in the past, a long way away, and we are simply telling you what came about."
One idea is that Luke is Rey’s father, however… for sure it has got to be one thing extra fascinating than that, proper?
The Drive Awakens ended with a wounded Kylo Ren being taken to Very best Chief Snoke to finish his coaching – however what does that imply? And extra importantly, who’s Snoke? One idea that has been floating approximately, courtesy of this tweet, is that Snoke is if truth be told Vader, who did not actually die. We do not purchase it for a 2d, however the scar is actually convincing.
We think one of the most movie will display Luke coaching Rey, reminiscent of his personal coaching from Yoda in The Empire Moves Again. It is going to even be fascinating to peer how Kylo Ren’s personality develops. He simply murdered his personal father, however he is nonetheless conflicted among the darkish aspect and the sunshine – or used to be Han’s dying the general a part of his transition to Sith?
Episode VIII set pictures
On April 28 director Rian Johnson celebrated hitting the midway aspect within the Episode 8’s filming time table through freeing a few set pictures.
The pictures do not shed so much new gentle at the movie, however it is great to peer affirmation that Episode 8 will certainly include the ships and glossy helmets that the collection is understood for.
Episode VIII teaser
As we discussed, we have already got a (very) brief teaser for Episode 8, that is extra approximately signalling the beginning of manufacturing than to turn us anything else meaty.
Smartly, we most likely see extra of Luke than we did within the entirety of The Pressure Awakens, so there is that.
