The film is directed by Looper and Breaking Bad‘s Rian Johnson. And starring Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Harrison Ford… maybe. Then next Christmas will see the Young Han Solo movie. Then Episode IX will follow in Christmas 2019.
Also check out the recent video which showed that the filming has completed on this year’s movie – all 100 days! Plus, it’s fitting that the last word in this goes to the late, great Carrie Fisher.
“But what does the title mean? What’s the significance of that red stuff round the title?”, ask the fanbois. Does it matter? You’ll find out before the year ends; can’t you wait?
The extensive cast list also includes Tom Hardy, Andy Serkis, Gwendoline Christie, Laura Dern, Oscar Isaac, Benicio Del Toro, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o, Warwick Davis, Peter Mayhew, Gareth Edwards, Anthony Daniels, Kelly Marie Tran, Adrian Edmondson and… er.. tax-dodger Gary Barlow.
Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi was due for release in the UK on December 15th, but as I predicted, it’d been moved back a day to the Thursday (14th) like they did with The Force Awakens and Rogue One.
PS. The Star Wars Episode IX subtitle is “Flange”.
