You know it’s been a while since we all got blindsided by major Star Wars news. The story is still developing, but per Variety, Episode VIII directed by Rian Johnson has been pushed back to December 2017.
Gut reaction, I’d say this is good for us all. Don’t get me wrong, it’s going to be torture to wait an additional seven months for the film, but I think more space between it and Rogue One is good to prevent release fatigue. Not to mention, extra production time can’t hurt Episode VIII.
Update: Now officially confirmed by the Official Site.
