During Star Wars Celebration 2016, Johnson revealed that the movie begins right where J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens left off, but that’s pretty much the only thing that we know about the project so far. Plot details are being kept tightly under wraps, so until we get the first official trailer for the movie, we’ll just have to wait and see what Johnson has in store for us.
Starring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran and Benicio del Toro, Star Wars: Episode VIII opens in theaters on December 15, 2017. Are you looking forward to the movie?
