It’s only been about a month and a half since the release of The Force Awakens, and Ridley, Boyega and crew are already back at it again. Disney CEO Bob Iger announced during a conference call today with investors. He stated during the call, “There is no better way to propel this franchise into the future than producing quality products. 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.

While Episode 8 director Rian Johnson is handling things over at Pinewood Studios in London, it brings up an interesting question on what production director Colin Trevorrow has started for Episode 9. Which by the way, that film isn’t due out for another 3 years. While there’s still very little we know of the story for the upcoming Episode 8, we can be sure that it will definitely be a hit. Stay tuned for more news on Episode 8 and everything else Star Wars!
