ALWAYS IN MOTION THE FUTURE
Did you know that the world will be seeing a lot more Star Wars movies than just the new trilogy? It’s not exactly been a secret that Disney is looking to create films that take place in the Star Wars universe that feature all new characters. Yesterday came confirmation of two movies:
Rogue One is the first Star Wars spin-off and will star Felicity Jones. It will be directed by Gareth Edwards, go into production this summer and be released on December 16, 2016. There will be no countdown for this movie, but I am excited about it nonetheless.
Star Wars Episode VIII will be written and directed by Rian Johnson, produced by JJ Abrams and open 40 years plus one day after the original Star Wars film on May 26, 2017.
There is going to be tons of Star Wars on film in the coming years. When will people start complaining of Star Wars fatigue?
