“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is almost here and it is highly anticipated. In fact, even upon the arrival of the latest “Star Wars” movie to hit theaters this year, fans are already talking about the other movies. In fact, “Rogue One” is already in production and “Star Wars Episode VIII” will start filming by next year. And J.J. Abrams has revealed something about Episode VIII.
During his interview with Wired, Abrams recently revealed that the script for “Star Wars Episode VIII” is done. It is being written and directed by Rian Johnson (“Looper”).
“The script for VIII is written. I’m sure rewrites are going to be endless like they always are. But what Larry and I did was set up certain key relationships, certain key questions, conflicts. And we knew where certain things were going,” Abrams said.
He added, “I showed Rian an early cut of the movie because I knew he was doing his rewrite and prepping. And as executive producer of VIII, I need that movie to be really good. Withholding serves no one and certainly not the fans. So we’ve been as transparent as possible.”
Abrams also spoke about “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” being a standalone movie. This is because they wanted to give fans a story that has its own beginning, middle, and end.
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” have released two new trailers the past few days.
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” will hit theaters on Dec. 18. Are you excited for the movie? Let us know by posting your comments below!
