Official Title For Star Wars Episode VIII Released

Episode VIII in the Star Wars Saga has recently completed production. However, there has been one interesting issue when it comes to the release of the movie. There has been no release of the official title for Episode VIII. There hasn’t even been any type of development of news even with the release of Rogue One. Finally, the official title of Episode VIII is The Last Jedi. This title already inspires a lot of curiosity for the upcoming film. Among the things that people are wondering is what is going to happen with some of the key characters, particularly Luke Skywalker.

 

It has already been established that this is going to be the darkest movie yet in the franchise. This means that it could even be darker than Rogue One. There have been worries that they were working to lighten the tone in Rogue One. However, the final reports of reshoots have revealed that the original version of the movie was actually a lot lighter in tone than what was finally released. One thing that should be considered is that even though Star Wars is considered a movie for the family, it is a franchise that delves into dark territory. The first Star Wars film released back in 1977 was actually pretty dark in some points with disturbing and violent imagery. It was not until The Phantom Menace that Star Wars actually became a little to kid oriented. Even then, it has darkened back up with Attack of the Clones.

 

It does look like The Last Jedi is going to go in a different direction. There is going to be a lot of speculation on the meaning of the title. However, one thing is certain. People are going to have to wait until December to see the next film. Also, it is only a matter of time before there is a teaser. Hopefully, they take a similar approach to The Force Awakens when it comes to advertising.

 

Adam Driver Okay If Star Wars Ep VIII Didn’t Have Trailers

These days, it is important for a film to have trailers or some kind of marketing campaign leading up to the release of the film. However, there was a question asked of Adam Driver if he would like Star Wars Ep VIII to be released without any trailers. Adam has said that he would be okay with it if the movie didn’t have any trailers. He would state that no one would know about the film and they will be anticipating the next series. However, this type of deal can backfire on even a big franchise like Star Wars. For one thing, people are not going to go see it if they don’t know if it is coming.

 

However, one thing that could be done is release trailers that give nothing away. One of the problems with trailers these days is that they give way too much away. One example is the Terminator series where the trailers always give away the big twist. If people went into the theater not knowing what is going to happen, then they would’ve enjoyed it a bit better. One thing that could be done with the trailer for the upcoming Star Wars movies is give little bits of teasers of scenes for the upcoming film so that people will be interested in the movie.

 

Films need trailers and some kind of marketing campaign in order for it to be released to the public. However, there probably does not need to be a ton of trailers. All that is needed is a teaser, a trailer, and a few TV spots in order to get people interest. With a film like Star Wars, there also needs to be some tie-ins that will get people excited about the upcoming film.

 

If Star Wars EP VIII doesn’t have any trailers, then this will actually backfire and cause the film to make a little bit less than its predecessor. People need the anticipation for the next film in the franchise.

 

Finn’s Recovery In Star Wars VIII

Many people that have seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens know that Finn has been severely wounded by the end of the film in a duel with Kylo Ren. They have already made it clear that he is alive. What remained to be seen is how he is going to recover. Among the many details that have been revealed about Star Wars VIII is that it takes place only moments after The Force Awakens. Therefore, it will probably pick up with Rey meeting Luke Skywalker like at the end of the predecessor.

 

Now it is time to talk about the details surrounding Finn’s recovery. It has been revealed that the recovery of Finn is going to be similar to that of Luke in The Empire Strikes Back. It will be something involving Bacta. Luke was in a Bacta tank which resulted in him being able to recover more quickly. However, there were scars after that scene. It could be stated that it just sped up the recovery and the effects of it go well beyond actually being in the tank. Now, Finn is going to be in a Bacta suit. This is probably an advancement of the tank used in The Empire Strikes Back. This trilogy is taking place some thirty years after the original trilogy.

 

It has also been revealed that Finn is going to be going on some adventures, hopefully with Poe since they had good chemistry in the predecessor. One good thing to do would be to capitalize on the strengths of the new trilogy while bringing something new. One thing that the producers of the upcoming installment in the Star Wars saga have revealed is that this is in fact going to be the darkest movie in the Star Wars saga. In this case, there is no telling what is going to happen. Then again, there is Rogue One which is rumored to be pretty dark. While there have been reshoots for rumored reasons, it does seem that the post-reshoot trailers still give off a war movie tone that is expected with that film. Episode VIII is scheduled for released on December 2017.

 

Mark Hamill Teases Luke Skywalker Appearance in Episode IX

Mark Hamill has made a comment that teases the return of Luke Skywalker in Episode IX. In other words, this is a suggestion that Luke Skywalker does not die in Episode VII. However, before we jump the gun, it is important to note that there are some characters that have died in Star Wars films and yet they have appeared in later forms. For instance, there are a few Jedi Knights that appear as ghosts to other Jedi so that they can continue to communicate with them. So Luke may still die in Star Wars VIII.

 

It has been confirmed that Rian Johnson’s Episode VIII is going to be darker in tone than The Force Awakens. However, The Force Awakens was not really that lighthearted in tone. EP VII was a bit closer to a war movie. It also was surprisingly brutal for a Star Wars movie. Even the score took on a more intense form with certain cues sounding more like Jerry Goldsmith. It is also worth noting that The Empire Strikes Back is one of the most serious films in the saga and there are no deaths of significant characters in the film. The Return of the Jedi had a few significant characters die, and it moved its tone a lot closer to slapstick.

 

There are quite a few reports of the various events in Ep VIII. Among the reports is that princess Leia is gonna be in a coma in Star Wars 8, which suggests that there might be an attack in which she is critically wounded. News of Mark Hamill’s involvement in Star Wars Ep IX is not going to be shocking for fans of the universe. For one thing, other characters such as Finn are going to return. Finn was left critically wounded after his fight with Kylo Renn. Perhaps the twist of the film is not going to be a death. There is speculation as to what is going to happen between Rei and Kylo Renn.

 

John Williams Prepares To Compose The Score For Star Wars EpVIII

If there is one thing that the core series of Star Wars films have in common, it is composer John Williams. He is the one that is responsible for the iconic and immortal Star Wars theme that plays on the opening of every Star Wars film. He has been involved with the franchise for almost 40 years. One of the things that people were wondering when they were anticipating the return of the franchise to the big screen was whether or not John Williams still has it as a composer. Not only did John Williams not disappoint, but his score was actually a little more intense and heavier for The Force Awakens.

 

One thing that is noticeable about John Williams score for The Force Awakens is that there are bits in his score that are reminiscent of Jerry Goldsmith’s scores particularly his score for Total Recall. This Jerry Goldmith-esque moment of the score present right before the reveal of the Millenium Falcon for the first time in the film. This is perhaps part of the effort to deal with the more intense tone of EpVIII compared even to the tone of the first Star Wars film released in 1977, which The Force Awakens bore a lot of similarities to in plot and setting.

 

While Star Wars is one of the most captivating series even at its worst, it probably wouldn’t be the same without John Williams. Not only did John Williams create an iconic score for the Star Wars saga, he has also influenced film music for the next couple of decades. Many composers have tried to imitate him with his style of music. One thing that could be said for John Williams is that his library is filled with iconic themes. Even the most recent Star Wars film has a very memorable theme for Rey. John Williams gets ready to score the next film so that he could come up with some very iconic themes as well as intense cues for the continuation of the saga.

Star Wars Actor Calls For Teaser Free Episode Eight

Many cinema goers have often been left frustrated by the growing trend for the release of a number of trailers being released in the buildup to the release of the most anticipated movies of recent years. Star Wars actor Adam Driver seems to be one of those movie goers after he recently announced he would enjoy the release of Star Wars: Episode Eight to be accompanied by no teaser trailers to build the anticipation for a movie already eagerly awaited.

 

Screen Rant reports Driver stated he personally wanted viewers to have as little information as possible at the direction “Episode Eight” would take as he felt some of the event is lost when too much information is provided for viewers through numerous previews being released; Driver appeared in “The Force Awakens” as Kylo Ren and will reprise the role in the upcoming Episode Eight that will be directed by Rian Johnson after the success of the return of the series under the leadership of the Disney corporation.

 

The chances of a preview free Episode Eight arriving seem to be slim after the large number of trailers released to coincide with 2016’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” starring Felicity Jones. Many critics and potential viewers were concerned by the initial previews for “Rogue One”, but initial critical and fan reaction following the world premier has been positive and raised hopes of a large return for Disney and Lucasfilm at the box office. Previews for “Rogue One” built the suspense for many viewers with the inclusion of iconic character Darth Vader in the later previews for the first Star Wars movies not to fit into the original story canon.

 

Adam Driver’s concern about the event aspect of Episode Eight being lost in the use of a series of trailers the story of “Rogue One” has not been revealed prior to the release of the movie in December 2016. Secrets can still be kept in the Star Wars universe, but for many fans the call for fewer previews from Adam Driver could have met with many supporters.

Details on Star Wars Episode 8

Some New Info on Marie Tran in Star Wars 8

Star Wars Episode VIII isn’t due out in theaters until 2017, but naturally there is a ton of anticipation brewing about the movie.

Rian Johnson, who is directing the film, finished up on principal photography towards the end of this past July and did so without any real leaks, though there is some speculation on what role Laura Dern is playing in the movie. However, fans can still look forward to the spin-off called Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, that will be hitting theaters at the year’s end.

At the same time, there is a new collection of characters to look into as far as Episode VIII goes, some of them including Benicio del Toro and Kelly Marie Tran. According to one source, Tran is playing a character named “Aya” who apparently works in the information business and sells intelligence to the highest bidder, whether it’s the First Order or the Resistance. In one sequence, Aya is speaking with Finn, played by John Boyega, and the two are talking a bar before stormtroopers see them and begin firing at them but are unable to capture Finn and Aya.

Though this is a brief description of one scene, it does hint at new aspects of the movie, particularly that Aya is a “new lead,” according to Boyega, meaning she will be an important character in the movie. The sequel will still focus on the new characters from The Force Awakens.
