The mainstream press have been picking up on a purported Star Wars Episode VIII script leak.

The so-called revelations originated on Reddit over a week ago.

According to a poster dubbed LouEvilOne:

  • The eighth chapter will be titled Echoes of the Dark Side.
  • Rey is the reincarnated Chosen One.
  • She was dumped on Jakku by Luke.
  • Benicio Del Toro is a New Republic politician named Vikram.

None of the above truly requires a spoiler warning. That’s because Lucasfilm creative executive Pablo Hidalgo has already debunked the script as “garbage”.

There’s nothing Hidalgo can’t tell you about the Star Wars universe -not that he would ever spill the beans about tightly guarded future plot details!

On this occasion, he responded to fans on Twitter regarding the Reddit situation. Just so you don’t have to root through his timeline:

The as-yet untitled movie by Rian Johnson will be released on December 15 2017.

Bob Iger: “I think we’re gonna be a little bit more careful about volume and timing”

“I made the timing decision, and as I look back, I think the mistake that I made, I take the blame, was a little too much, too fast. You can expect some slowdown, but that doesn’t mean we’re not gonna make films. J.J. (Abrams) is busy making (Episode) IX. We have creative entities, including (Game of Thrones creators David) Benioff and (D.B.) Weiss, who are developing Star Wars sagas of their own, which we haven’t been specific about. And we are just at the point where we’re gonna start making decisions about what comes next after J.J.’s. But I think we’re gonna be a little bit more careful about volume and timing. And the buck stops here on that.” -Bob Iger (Disney CEO)

LUCASFILM & DISNEY ANNOUNCE A NEW STAR WARS TRILOGY

Published

By

Lucasfilm and Disney Pictures have announced a new Star Wars trilogy in the works. The company has entrusted Episode VIII Director Rian Johnson to helm the story. The New trilogy will not follow the Skywalker family and will take us an entirely new direction in Star Wars lore. Some have speculated we will see stories revolving around the old republic. Others believe we will see the return of Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan. A Star Wars television series is also expected to be launched by the end of 2019.

“We all loved working with Rian on ‘The Last Jedi,’” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “He’s a creative force, and watching him craft ‘The Last Jedi’ from start to finish was one of the great joys of my career. Rian will do amazing things with the blank canvas of this new trilogy.”

Rian Johnson and his long time partner Ram Bergman reciprocated their feelings about working with Lucasfilm and Disney:

“We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on ‘The Last Jedi,’ ” Johnson and Bergman said in a joint statement. “ ‘Star Wars’ is the greatest modern mythology and we feel very lucky to have contributed to it. We can’t wait to continue with this new series of films.”
