First Star Wars Spin-Off is Titled & Episode VIII Release Date Announced!


rogue-squadronToday during the Disney shareholder’s meeting, Bob Iger dropped two major Star Wars bombs.

The first is that Gareth Edward’s spinoff coming in December 2016 is titled “Rogue One” and Felicity Jones is confirmed to star.

The second, and perhaps the bigger news of the two, is that Rian Johnson’s Star Wars Episode VIII will be released on May 26, 2017. This means that the Star Wars movies are returning to their home in the middle of summer with the traditional May release date. This also means that Episode VIII will be releasing on the actual 40th anniversary of Star Wars, which was originally released on May 25, 2017.

Rogue One is an interesting title, does this mean it could be a Rogue Squadron movie?
