    Star Wars’: Rian Johnson to Write, Direct Episode VIII

    So it sounds like JJ Abrams will only be directing episode 7. I hope they still flow well, I'm a little disappointed at first read.

    From the start Abrams was only supposed to direct Episode VII, it was never intended for him to direct any other sequels.

    So they picked the guy behind LOOPER to pick up the pieces after JJ "I don't give two s--ts about continuity" Abrams is done with it?

    That's actually kind of hilarious

    Let the rampant speculation begin...


    I'm wondering if we'll have a ROTJ jump of sorts where Rey will already have some training under her belt and Kylo Ren will have already completed his training as well.

    I wonder why Kylo Ren hasn't completed his training yet. Wasn't Luke already a Jedi at that age? I hope to learn more about the Ireland Jedi Temple.

    I do feel that might be appropriate.. BUT i do hope they show some of that training.

    His Master may not have felt he was ready, not sure. In any case, he has obviously already had a decent level of training to stop blaster shots in mid-air and the memory extraction methods.

    It seemed to me that he had raw power but not much finesse.

    Guess Disney wants to own the holiday movie season. Face it, when one of these comes out, it blows everything else out of the water for several weeks.

    I think this Jedi Temple/Planet is SUPPOSED to be Tython, as a LOT of stuff in the scenery of the scene was found in The Old Republic MMO on the planet Tython. Of course Tython is in the Deep Core, so getting there isn't easy.

    Also isn't it already hinted that this moviue will be slightly if not a whole lot darker for Finn ?

    I like the Tython idea.

    Let's talk titles. I go for "The Republic Strikes Back" is I am allowed some comedic wishful thinking.

    How about plot speculation?

    I say a sight time skip, maybe a year? And Rey has become a fully fledged Jedi Knight. Maybe some younglings or a padawan or two survived the Ren fiasco? They go looking for more Jedi...or maybe Jedi just start appearing like they did in the EU. Kyle Katarn, Corran Horn, and so on just found lightsabers and started self teaching themselves.

    Luke and Rey run into a few of these as the Resistance (Enter Poe and Fin) prepares for a counter offensive (the First Order has been making good use of a headless and Fleetless republic).

    They mount some sort of operation under Lea to get some intel or something big to aid in the counter offensive. The new Jedi end up meeting a fully trained Kylo Ren and possible acolytes?

    In the end, we now have a new generation of Jedi Knights and a new Dark side order, group...fraternity? Supreme leader Jar Jar...Grand Inquisitor...Maul...Plaguies... begins his ultimate ploy for galactic domination, and the Resistance starts preparing the republic worlds for the inevitable invasion.

    I doubt much time has passed. In fact, I heard that the movie might open exactly where it left off... with Rey giving Luke the lightsaber(there are photos where they have clearly reshot the whole thing).

    I hope this is better the utterly disappointing The Force Awakens.

    As to the story, Ray and Finn have both become trained Jedi. Finn surely must have some force powers, he resistance to brainwashing and was able to go toe to toe with the vader wannabe. One wonders why his Grand dad didn't come back as a ghost and smack some sense into him but there you go. But let not get side track, surely teen wannabe vader is dead anyway.

    Luke has disappeared again, his mission to explore the Jedi history still in complete.

    Have Poe come with a message and Snokes location have been found and rebel forces are mobilizing across the galaxy.

    follow Luke on some adventures, find what he been looking for and reveal some sort of secret order of Jedi knights.

    The rebels vs the first order massive space battle has been a virtual draw, both fleets have been smashed to pieces by each other. But the ground battle isn't going as well for the rebel forces, who are heavily outnumbered and being cut down. Poe and Finn should have some comedy controlling a tank or a walker. Those two had by far the best chemistry in the first film.

    Luke, arrive with a army of Jedi Knights and turns the tide of battle, let have a awesome scene of Luke sending a couple of dozen storm troopers flying off into the air. May be some lightening, that a cool trick. Freezing blaster fire mid air.

    Snokes is revealed as Yoda size alien, not the 10 meter giant. Him and his other trained apprentices Easily defeats all three and few of the new Jedi Knights Luke brought to the party and escape for the next film.

    Have a few happy scenes, may be one or two airing of suspicions of the new Jedi Knights and their sudden appearance onto the galaxy.

    A snap shot showing Snokes have trained a whole army of sith lords and knights.
