'Star Wars: Episode 8' Release Date, Cast, & More Details!

Now that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is in theaters everywhere, fans are probably wanting to know more about the next movie in the franchise – Star Wars: Episode VIII!

There is almost exactly one year left to go until the movie is released as it will storm into theaters on December 15, 2017. One thing we’re still waiting for is the official title, but we’ll probably have to wait until Rogue One hype dies down a little until we get more details.

Rian Johnson, best known for his work on the movie Looper and the television series Breaking Bad, has written and directed the upcoming film. Production on Episode VIII took place at the UK’s Pinewood Studios from February until July this year.

It is rumored that Tom Hardy is going to be making a special appearance in the film as a Stormtrooper, but that has not yet been confirmed.
