Episode 8 delayed
« on: January 21, 2016, 07:36:05 PM »

They have announced that episode 8 has been pushed back to December 2017 instead of May 2017.  Supposedly, Ryan Johnson is doing some rewriting of the script.  Or maybe, Disney is drooling over the idea of taking in another $2 billion from a Christmas release? I hope it's the former.  I guess another 6 months won't kill me... :fight:

apparently, their are adjusting the script based on feedback on the first movie.

I have no idea what that means, really. Unless Ep.8 looked too similar to ESB ? lol : )

I wonder if they might have written TFA such that they kept options open for who Rey is, how she got put into exile etc ...so that based on fan theories they could tweak to surprise in VIII? That might seem like "filmmaking by committee" but it ends up being an interesting approach to this franchise. Not like it was a "vote". They would still be free to just take the feedback and do with it what they will.

Ultimately, I don't really care as long as it ends up being good. Who knows though! Maybe one of us on some board saying "Wouldn't it be cool if..." got them inspired to change things. Just hope it isn't the "she's Kenobi's grand daughter" theory because that would be the worst IMO. If they take my "Kylo put Rey on Jakku" theory though I would be happy! :) (I know it probably isn't mine alone...)

The need the extra time to add in all the CGI for Jar Jar Binks

I also don't mind them revising.  I hope they don't change key story elements, but adding more details on things people were particularly interested in, or adding more scenes with characters like Captain Phasma, or whatever, would be fine.

I think proving the financial viability of Star Wars + December holiday season = $$$$$ made them change the release date.

I'm sure an extra 6 months to refine story and effects is good too.

Don't do it fast, do it right.

I thought in the beginning it was odd for them to choose to release it at Christmas, but I really enjoyed having it rolled into that part of the year. My expectations for EpVIII are even higher now - that's the price of delaying things by 6 months. ;)
