Star Wars: The Force Awakens continue to set records, and close to that two-billion mark after finally opening in china over the weekend. Even after four weeks officially out, fans are eager to know whats coming next.
The next Star Wars film will be Rogue One in December this year, but the year after will be Star Wars: Episode VIII. Although no title has been announce for the film just yet, but John Boyega, who will return as the First Order Stormtrooper who joins the Resistance, says Episode 8 will be "darker"
Stars Daisy Ridley and John Boyega has seen the script from Director Rian Johnson and give nothing but praise.
“It’s great. Much darker, but we’re very excited.” Says Boyega
Episode 7 mirrored episode 4 in a lot of ways and drew heavy criticism afterwards. What we expect next could be the First Order having a massive retaliation plan against the resistance, which sounds a lot like Empire Strikes Back.
Dark or not, lets hope episode 8 doesn't completely mirrors the original trilogy again.
