Upon walking out of The Force Awakens my first thought was, “At least the next one isn’t SO far away.”
That changed today as Disney has Announced that Rian Johnson’s follow-up to The Force Awakens will now splash across cinema screens on December 15, 2017, moving from its original release date of May 26, 2017. Johnson’s follow-up will begin principal photography in London next month.
Moving into Episode VIII’s May 26, 2017 release date is the fifth entry in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise Starring Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom.
I was really excited to be getting Rogue One with Episode VIII coming fast five months later. This is a bit of a bummer.
