You Ready?? Hang On to Your Butts
Now this is not confirmed by the production company themselves, and it has a lot of cheese to it. But my first reaction is an eye roll. I think this worked back in the day, and maybe they are trying to do a retro throwback, but my initial feelings is that the direction the new series is going in is a departure from the traditional star wars movies and I think the title needs to reflect that direction.
Hopefully we won’t be waiting too long for confirmation, principal photography wrapped on July 10, and the release is December 15 2017, so I imagine they are ready to ramp up the hype train right after Rogue One is out. Maybe a theatrical teaser?
By the way, if you didn’t know already, they shot on film. Honest to goodness film.
And Billy Dee Williams is rumored to return..
