While all eyes are on JJ Abrams and Star Wars: Episode VII, Looper’s Rian Johnson briefly spoke to Filmspotting about Star Wars: Episode VIII.
“I’m really excited about all the things I can’t tell you,” he opened.
“The thought of it made me so completely joyfully happy. I wanted to to play in this world, of literally the first movie my dad put me in the car to see.”
Pushed for a teaser, he joked, “With these films, I am trying to harken back to the original Star Wars… Christmas special. We do have Jefferson Starship.”
Star Wars: Episode VII is due in cinemas 18 December 2015. You can buy Star Wars: The Complete Saga for £57.99 on Blu-ray from Amazon.co.uk.
