Looking forward to seeing the Knights of Ren in action.  You get the sense that we already did see them in Rey's Force vision.  But you're left wondering if they're all Force users or not.  And do any of them utilize lightsabers aside from Kylo Ren?

Read a rumor that Episode 8 will reveal the origin of the force and it sounds soooo awful.

It's not that different than this:



I thought of the Mortis Arc when I read about this last week, that was some trippy **** for a kid's show

Yeah, I didn't care much for that Mortis arc. I'll even say it, the Droid Squad arc was better.

Check out this this Flicks And The City video from the 'Future Filmmakers' panel at SWCE.  Episode VIII director Rian Johnson sat down with LFL head Kathleen Kennedy and Lucasfilm story group members Kiri Hart and Pablo Hidaldo to discuss the next installment in the Sequel Trilogy.

I get why they held off on a trailer pre Rogue One, I read lots of articles that they weren't sure how this little experiment would go and are banking a lot of future plans on RO success...like I said I get it...WHERE IS THE TEASER TRAILER

Dontcha think it may have been a great idea to debut your next tent pole and some new footage at the start of this one (hell tag it on to the end of RO)

But then we wouldn't see that Transformers trailer with the auto-tune song!  ::)

I was thinking the same thing about an Episode VIII teaser.  But then I gave it a little thought from a whole messenging/PR standpoint.  This whole anthology film concept is still a somewhat new concept, and there were some considerable experiments in the mix, too.  I think that Lucasfilm and Disney want THAT to be the story coming out of this opening weekend.  Give this movie a chance to stand on it's own to show that it's not a fluke.

I think the first Episode VIII teaser will probably come out at one of two times:  the REBELS season 3 finale or Star Wars Celebration in Orlando.

We'll probably see it around the time of the next Marvel Movie.

That's Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 in May - while it most likely will be attached to that, I agree with Nicklab - they will show *something* during Celebration in April - it may not be a "finished" 1st trailer, but there will be something EP8 related shown.

Yep it's pretty much marketing. They want RO and each of these films to have its own conversation vis-a-vis media and the culture at large. If they ran a teaser before or after for 8 we'd all be talking about that and not RO. It's also starving the market as much as they can - pure anecdote but at RO the other day they played the new Spidey trailer and a guy in front of me said 'They need to stop making these movies.' Not sure if it was Spidey in particular or Marvel in general but it was a weariness that escalated with the Guardians and Logan trailers. You don't want to saturate the market, which they are at one movie per year, so they definitely don't want to create the impression they are. We'll see a trailer at celebration after the RO DVD has dropped, pretty much following the same pattern RO took after TFA.
