But Leia won't be in X, no matter how things shake out. The movie people don't care about the comic book and novel people. And Fisher's brother and family still could've just said "No." I really don't smell anything devious in any of this.

Well yeah, but I don't expect an Episode X for another 10-15 years. I mean Daisy Ridley will barely be past 25 by the time Episode 9 finishes, what's the point of starting an Episode X immediately after when they would have to focus on the same characters?

It would be like expecting Episode 7 to come out in the 90's when Luke/Han/Leia were only marginally older than they were at the end of Episode 6.

There will be a break... but I'm not seeing a break like the ones we've seen between trilogies. Instead of 10 years, it'll be like 5. 6 tops.

They'll follow the same pattern they used for TFA and Rogue One. Teaser in April, behind the scenes reel in July and a full trailer late summer/early fall.

The Last Jedi panel at Celebration is Friday so expect the teaser online around 12:30 est.

I was re-watching the teaser and first trailer for The Force Awakens and they're still awesome. Seriously, watch them again.

I can't believe they messed things up so badly and remade A New Hope, the trailers basically laid ground for something new. Unless they remake ESB I guess The Last Jedi should give us something new?

If most of it is about Luke and Rey, their past, and giving Kylo Ren some much needed screentime, it should turn out very good. I expect Finn to just be the, "funny black guy comic relief character" and Poe to just be there for shippers, so we can hope for the best.

I think I remember Rian Johnson saying something to the effect of "Oh yes!" in regard to "Will we see an LGBTQ character in Episode 8?" a while back. So maybe it goes beyond that.

I don't think they'll really do it, not with Finn anyway. Weren't the two Asians in Rogue One supposed to be gay, but they made it so subtle you couldn't tell the difference and they just felt like friends?

The report about Leia in IX was bogus.

Damn it. More FAKE news.

Leia will definitely die off-camera between VIII and IX, if this is true.

This is why I think Luke will survive this movie trilogy. No way are they going to kill off all 3 original main characters. Originally they probably were intending Leia to be the only one to survive, but now they probably changed that to Luke.

Disney and Lucasfilm has officially announced the released date for Star Wars Episode 9, the 3rd film in this trilogy will release on May 24 2019, So no longer a Christmas release.

Pushed up, then? That's a fairly quick turnaround for a Star Wars film.

Wow.

So we're getting a new Star Wars film 6 months after Episode 8? and then episode 9 comes out in a year and a half from 8, basically 2 years from today? Way to burn the franchise quickly, not even F&F get sequels so fast.

At this rate I'm guessing they want to have a new Star Wars film every 8 months or maybe two a year. Episode X will likely be released 3 years from today starting a new trilogy.


The excitement of Star Wars really is dead.

It seems more like they are simply transitioning their annual movie from December to May which is when Disney originally wanted VII and VIII to open.

December has worked great for them and people have gotten used to and like Star Wars in the Christmas season, it's almost become a tradition at this point with only two movies.

Sure there's the potential of making more money in May but there's also more competition and it was already doing gangbusters in December for them to move it. And if they really wanted Star Wars in May then they should've just delayed Episode VII to May instead of releasing it in December.

I've not been vocal about my dislike of yearly Star Wars but the way they're handling things really seems to be all about profit in the short term and not the long term, Bob Iger is smarter than that which is why it boggles my mind that they want to keep rushing more product out.

Bob Iger told investors since day one of the acquisition of Lucasfilm that Ep VII would be released in 2015. That's why they didn't delay it a full year to May 2016.

Telling investors is not a contract, the stock would've fallen a bit during the announcement but it woulnd't really have affected the stock price much when you know they have Star Wars, not to mention the company was already in a new golden age.

This is pretty sad to read. It was going to be showcasing her at the forefront.

This actually has it all make sense. Han is VII, Luke is VIII, and Leia would have been IX... even though that's all a bit OT fanservicey... damn.
