With the launch of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Disney and Lucasfilm took the first step toward what is quickly becoming a vast and healthy Star Wars universe. At the moment, there are a number of Star Wars projects in development, which means news on May 4 could come from several different directions. These are our best guesses at stories we think could develop on May 4, keeping fans invested in these upcoming Star Wars properties.
Star Wars: Episode 8 Could Get A Subtitle
Director Rian Johnson recently revealed that he has reached the halfway mark on 2017’s Episode 8, so why don’t we stop calling it “Episode 8” and start calling it by its proper name? Fans went crazy analyzing the possible meanings of The Force Awakens when J.J. Abrams revealed that it would be the subtitle of the first Star Wars movie in decades. Heck, many of us still debate the meaning of “Awakens,” as in, “Who had the Force awaken inside of them?” We know that Johnson’s sequel will continue the stories of Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega) and even Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). But he’s also bringing Luke Skywalker deeper into the fold, so a new title could address the plans for all of these characters. Will we learn the subtitle later this week? We shall see.
