STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII
The sci-fi saga continues with Looper’s Rian Johnson taking up the director’s reins vacated by The Force Awakens’JJ Abrams. Plot details are understandably sketchy at this stage, but Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker (right) is sure to see much more action.
Cast newbies include Benicio Del Toro and Laura Dern, who will join the returning Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Adam Driver.
Rumours suggest an Empire Strikes Back-style darker turn to set up the trilogy-closing Episode IX in 2019.
