Star Wars Movie DELAYED — Confirmed

Walt Disney has pushed the release date of “Star Wars: Episode VIII” from May 26, 2017 to December 15 of the same year. The Rian Johnson film begins shooting next month in London.

The new December date for the “Star Wars” sequel sets up a showdown with Warner Bros.’ “Ready Player One,” the futuristic sci-fi tale directed by Steven Spielberg. Disney also has an untitled live-action fairy tale scheduled to open one week later.
From Disney’s press release: Star Wars: Episode VIII, originally scheduled for release on May 26, 2017, will now debut on December 15, 2017. The move follows the extraordinary success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was the first Star Wars movie to premiere in December.
