October 30, 2012 - Star Wars Episode VIII / movie announced
Scooped on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
With the sale of Star Wars to the Walt Disney company, the movie studio is planning on creating a new trilogy of Star Wars movies set after Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. The first of these new films will be the as-yet untitled Episode VII, announced for release sometime in 2015.
After Episode VII comes out, Disney also made it known that they want to release a new Star Wars movie every two to three years. This would pencil a prospective release date for Star Wars Episode VIII at some point in 2017.
During the announcement of the sale of Lucasfilm and the Star Wars property to Disney, it was mentioned that George Lucas had already submitted story ideas for Episode VIII as well as the earlier and later Star Wars movies in the forthcoming new sequel trilogy. Precisely what ideas those are remain unknown at the present time.
