Rian Johnson Discusses New Details On Star Wars: Episode VIII

We’re less than a year away from Star Wars: Episode VIII but the buzz around the movie is undeniable. Director of Episode VIII, Rian Johnson, is not only a fan of the Star Wars saga but also now left with the responsibility of what happens next.

More specifically, at the end of the Force Awakens when Rey is seen handing Luke the lightsaber, Johnson said:

“I don’t want to skip ahead two years. I want to see the very next moment of what happens.”

Rian Johnson explains how Rey and Luke relate to each other, which is the main key relationship in Episode VIII:

“A large part of the movie will be spent addressing why Luke’s there and what he’ll do next. Like Luke, Rey has been pulled into a bigger world by connecting with the Force, but part of what’s she’s dealing with is the realization that she has this power and this gift. She’s taking her first step to coming to terms with this thing inside her that she never knew was there and is just starting to reveal its potential.”

Reading this gets me pumped up. I’m looking forward to Dec. 15th, 2017!
