Star Wars Episode VIII Announced For May 2017


During a Disney shareholder meeting held on March 12, Disney and Lucasfilm announced that Star Wars Episode VIII will arrive in theaters on May 26, 2017.

Star Wars: Episode VIII will continue the saga from where it leaves off in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The movie will be directed by Rian Johnson (Looper, Breaking Bad).

Details on the film were scarce, as it takes pace after the still heavily guarded Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but more details are sure to come in the days and weeks to follow.


Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens December 18, 2015.
