I predict he gets cast as a Gungan. He wore that rabbit suit very well. The look suits him.

I really liked the December release date for this last film. I hope all of the new trilogy films follow suit.

BMD 02/10/2016:
Filming Has Begun On STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII
Also: ROGUE ONE's almost finished and the HAN SOLO solo movie is still on track for 2018.
Rian Johnson has begun filming Star Wars: Episode VIII:

Bob Iger wrote:"There is no better way to propel this franchise into the future than producing quality products,” (Iger) said. “Filming of Star Wars: Episode VIII, the next chapter of the legendary saga, has just commenced and it will be in theaters December 2017. And production of Episode IX, a 2019 release, has also begun.”

John Williams May Not Return for Star Wars 8

Ah, but at the end of the Trilogy we'd only want more John Williams. Our appetites would still not be satisfied.

Me neither, at first. And that is one of my biggest complaints of the TV film - that none of the music jumped out as being instant classics. I pre-ordered the soundtrack and it took me a while to listen to it all the way through....but I really enjoyed what I heard, so I listened to it again...and again....

I'm not going to call it a great Star Wars soundtrack, but it's really good. And I'd like to see how some of the themes develop and mature through the Trilogy.

The biggest concern about Williams potentially not returning is who would replace him. Michael Giacchino would be my choice.

Variety:
John Boyega: New ‘Star Wars’ Is ‘Darker, Bigger’ Than ‘Force Awakens’
Elsa Keslassy wrote:And how is it working with Rian Johnson after having worked with J.J. Abrams?

Boyega:
It’s very easy. Rian Johnson is great. It’s a different take, darker, bigger. Someone will say: “How do you get bigger than ‘Force Awakens?'” But it’s crazy.

Does your character get darker?


Boyega:
My skin color does because of the heat on the job! That’s me dodging your question because Disney has spies everywhere. If I answer this, I get killed, and I’m not in episode nine.


AICN:
John Williams speaks about Star Wars Episode VIII!
He's also very protective of Star Wars and Rey in particular. He said he doesn't want to see anyone else writing music for Rey.
Quint wrote:Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. We will see a day when John Williams doesn't score a Star Wars movie (defined here as one of the Episodes since if you count the Clone Wars film WB released or the Ewok TV movies that day has already come). That is a depressing thought, but every time it creeps into my head I just look back at the 7 amazing scores he gave us already and feel contented.

But I'm a geek, so I'll never truly be contented. That brings us to Rian Johnson's Episode VIII, currently filming in Ireland.

Will John Williams score this new movie? The answer's still unknown, but John Williams did speak about the possibility recently and Indie Revolver passed along the news.

Williams did a performance of Star Wars cues with the Boston Pops and spoke to the audience during the night. In regards to Episode VIII he said that Kathleen Kennedy asked him to come back, but he said he wasn't sure if he was up to it. The man is in his mid-80s afterall.

But. He's also very protective of Star Wars and Rey in particular. He said he doesn't want to see anyone else writing music for Rey.

The decision is still up in the air, but if I were a betting man, I'd wager that Williams, barring ill health, buckles down and scores Episode VIII. From the bits I've heard about him over the years and the feeling I get reading his words on the new trilogy I think his overall feeling of ownership on this franchise will win out.

I, for one, would love for him to finish out this trilogy, but eventually he'll retire and then who do we go to? Alexandre Desplat is doing Rogue One. I'm sure Michael Giacchino will end up doing a Star Wars score at some point. Maybe the way to go is a different person for each film?

What are your thoughts?

When Will We See the First ‘Star Wars: Episode 8’ Trailer? Kathleen Kennedy Responds
“We’re giving [Rogue One] a little bit of breathing room, and then probably heading into spring, you’ll start to see things.”



The Playlist:
Kevin Jagernauth wrote:Fox still has the distribution rights, and next year is the 40th anniversary of “Star Wars.” It’s entirely possible that Fox releases the original next year, and brings it to home video too — they don’t need any cooperation from Disney, and it would be a huge hit. That said, they’ll likely still get in touch with the mouse house to figure out how to best maximize the opportunity, especially with “Star Wars: Episode VIII” on the horizon. (Imagine if the first teaser for the ‘VIII’ came in front of the re-release of ‘A New Hope’? That would be something).

A nice-looking film, indeed, but I'm certainly not feeling much in the way of anticipation like with THE FORCE AWAKENS.

Probably because I've seen THE FORCE AWAKENS.

I don't know if the movie will be good or not (all this talk about restoring balance to the Force has to get old at some point, right?), but I did like that trailer a lot. Really liked the heavy presence of score, which all Star Wars movies should aspire to.

it's time for the Jedi to end what?

the War on Drugs?
the practice of offering high-interest paycheck loans to poor inner-city workers?

i was thinking the same exact thing. i'm betting it's "it time for the Jedi to end...the practice of protecting pedophiles by sending them to another jedi training center to victimize unsuspecting padawans"
