This morning at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, across the street from Lucasfilm, Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger hosted a shareholder meeting where he announced news regarding the first Star Wars stand-alone movie as well as Star Wars: Episode VIII.

Rogue One is the title for the first film in a unique series of big-screen adventures that explores the characters and events beyond the core Star Wars saga. Rogue One will be directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters, Godzilla) and written by Oscar nominee Chris Weitz (Cinderella, About a Boy, Antz). The first actress cast is Felicity Jones, who garnered an Academy Award nomination and critical acclaim for her performance in The Theory of Everything. The idea for the story of Rogue One came from John Knoll, an Academy Award-winning visual effects supervisor and chief creative officer at Industrial Light & Magic. He will executive produce along with Simon Emanuel (The Dark Knight Rises, Fast & Furious 6) and Jason McGatlin (Tintin, War of the Worlds). Kathleen Kennedy and Tony To (Band of Brothers, The Pacific) are on board to produce and John Swartz (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) will co-produce. The film starts shooting this summer in London and is due for release on December 16, 2016.

In addition, Iger confirmed that Rian Johnson will write and direct Star Wars: Episode VIII. The film, which continues the saga after the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is set for release on May 26, 2017 — forty years and a day after the release of Star Wars: A New Hope in 1977. Johnson is widely considered one of cinema’s most gifted young filmmakers, having directed the modern sci-fi classic, Looper, as well as Brick and The Brothers Bloom. He was also behind the camera for three episodes of the critically-acclaimed TV series Breaking Bad, including “Ozymandias,” which series creator Vince Gilligan named as the best installment of the show. Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman, producer of Looper, Don Jon, Brick, and The Brothers Bloom, are on board to produce.

Was just about to post that! Also needs to be in the comic/superhero thread.

Looks fantastic.

That looks awesome. Thank fucking god Lucas has no more part in this series. That man is an abomination.

Have to keep myself in check considering The Phantom Menace teaser was just about the best thing I had ever seen when it was released 16 years ago.

But damn JJ, I nearly lost it watching that.

It looks far better than I thought it could.  That said, you can make a good trailer out of a truly shitty movie.

JJ is going to knock this out of the park. I honestly believe this film is going to be gold. Too much riding on it. They need this to reboot a lot of dishearted fans love for what amounts to a franchise they spent billions on.

Absolutely everything about the trailer looks better, more inspired, and more like Star Wars than anything about the Eps I-III trilogy.

Did you guys all forget Lost or the new Star Trek movies?

it wasn't perfect, but LOST was a great show.

The first of the Star Treck reboots is really good fun. The 2nd wasn't horrible but largely fell apart in the last act.

Look. The biggest criticism you'll see from the intended contrarians will be the new Star Wars movie wil play off and using too much of nostalgia. Which to me is not a critique. In general nostalgia is good when used correctly in a way that brings back memories of why you fell in love with a movie franchise in the first place.

Star Wars should not be a vehicle for untraditional story plot points. It's classic pulp themes through and through. And it shouldn't deviate from that

Nostalgia's not the problem, it's that that'll be all there is. Nothing fresh or original or risky, just a polished (looking) action movie rehashing all the popular Star Wars tropes.

I'm glad you can summarize that from a trailer that's less then two minutes long. Must be a gift. Can you predict drops in the stock market too? Let's talk.

Should I que up the sad violin music while you try and make a point that people going into to this with a positive and open mind is somehow equivalent?
