Star Wars: The Last Jedi[1] (also known as Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi) is the planned eighth live-action theatrical installment in the Star Wars film franchise, to be produced under the new Disney-Lucasfilm brand.

Unofficial reports claimed in November 2012 that Lawrence Kasdan, who originally wrote the screenplays for both The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and co-writer Simon Kinberg would divide writing responsibilities for The Last Jedi and IX, and both would co-produce all three films of the upcoming sequel trilogy, alongside Kathleen Kennedy.

In February 2013, Disney revealed that Kasdan and Kinberg were working on standalone films as well.

During a concert with the Young Musician's Foundation Debut Orchestra on February 9, composer John Williams stated that he was hoping to get the chance to write the musical scores for the entire new trilogy. His involvement was made official when Star Wars Insider 144 stated he would score the "new Star Wars trilogy".

In June 2014, it was announced that Rian Johnson, director of the hit 2012 sci-fi flick Looper, will write and direct The Last Jedi and Episode IX.

It was announced in August 2014 that actress Daisy Ridley would reprise her role in both Episodes VIII and IX.[2]

In fall 2015, Benicio del Toro was cast as a new villain in the film, joining Adam Driver and Andy Serkis, who play the trilogy's main villains Ben Solo/Kylo Ren and Supreme Leader Snoke respectively. Gugu Mbatha-Raw was additionally cast as a fourth main lead, signed on for both Episodes VIII and IX. She joins Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac who play Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron respectively.

In January 2017, the title of Episode VIII was officially revealed to be The Last Jedi.[1]

Trivia

  • The film was originally scheduled to be released on May 26, 2017, but due to the success of The Force Awakens in December, the release date was pushed back to December 15, 2017.
  • This is the first theatrical Star Wars sequel to be released two years after its predecessor instead of three like the other trilogies.
  • This title is not to be confused with the Marvel comic from the 1980's or the Legends novel staring Jax Pavan.
  • The title's announcement launched a frenzy of online speculation in regard to the interpretations of the meaning of "last Jedi", with some noting that the term "Jedi" can be used both singularly and plurally. However, this meaning was revealed in foreign translations of the film's title, revealing the translated title to be plural.
  • This will be Carrie Fisher's final performance; as she died in 2016.
    • It has been confirmed that Fisher filmed all her scenes before her death.

  • Princess Leia in Episodes VIII and IX: Her fate?

    3 messages
    • I think they should kill her off, like they did with the coach from cheers, mr hooper, grandpa Walton, doc hudson
    • They could re-use the left-over unused scenes from Ep. VIII, and then give her a proper Death in Ep. IX.
  • Are you excited for StarWars: The Force Awakens?

    • Okay, I'm not so sure about this. It's actually coming across as as much of a clone of Episode IV as Return to the Sea was a clone ...
