HOLLYWOOD – Reports claim Star Wars: Episode 8: The Last Jedi to feature Tribbles.
An old Star Wars favorite the Tribbles are to make a return to the new Rian Johnson film: Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi.
The film stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Carrie Fisher and Adam Driver.
A source close to the production told the Studio Exec:
Early in the production Rian introduced the idea of the Tribbles. It was something that JJ Abrams suggested, but Rian agreed completely. Initially, they were going to just have a small role, but they kinda multiplied if you know what I mean. Now they’ve become the dominant character. I don’t want to give too much away but there’s about five minutes of the film which is about Luke Skywalker and Rey. And the rest of it is Tribbles all the way through.
Is Chewbacca a kind of Tribble?
No. But the Tribbles worship him as a God.
Like in Return of the Jedi.
There weren’t any Tribbles in Return of the Jedi.
Right. Wait, aren’t Tribbles like a Star Trek thing?
Star Trek… Star Wars, what’s the difference?
Star Wars The Last Jedi will be released in December.
HOLLYWOOD – Star Wars Episode 8 has a title and poster: The Last Jedi.
Disney and Lucas Film revealed the title for the new Star Wars film: The Last Jedi. Rian Johnson directs and Mark Hamill stars as Luke Skywalker. He’ll join the young generation of new heroes played by Daisy Ridley and John Boyega. The studio issued a note with the poster that read:
For Star Wars: The Last Jedi we are taking out inspiration from a classic film by Michael Mann. Star Wars has always taken audiences to different worlds. The ice world of Hoth, the desert world of Tatooine, another ice world and another desert world, the names escape me. Anyway the point is we’re running out of climate zones to take the adventures. So we figured when Star Trek was running out of ideas, they’d visit planet Bonanza and all dress as cowboys. Or planet World War Two… you get the picture. Hence The Last of the Jedi.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released December 15, 2017.
HOLLYWOOD – Star Wars Episode 8 is going to be more similar to Herbie Goes Bananas than the Love Bug, Kylo Ren actor Adam Driver has revealed.
With a great deal of secrecy surrounding the next instalment in the Star Wars franchise – the so-called Episode 8 – villain Adam Driver has revealed that the new movie will be a lot like Herbie Goes Bananas. Talking EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec, he said of the film:
We’re really watching all the Herbie films, but whereas JJ Abrams had us all watch The Love Bug, this time around Rian Johnson is getting us to screen Herbie Goes Bananas and our characters all have their parallel characters in the Disney film about everyone’s favorite VW Bug.
News will come as a relief to those fans who were worried that the new Disney made Star Wars films were getting too Star Warsy.
Star Wars Episode 8 will be released in 2017.
HOLLYWOOD – Rian Johnson’s Star Wars Episode 8 has a title the Studio Exec can EXCLUSIVELY reveal.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens has only just opened internationally but already Kathleen Kennedy is prepping Star Wars: Episode 8 and she popped into the Studio Exec Falcon to speak about the new installment.
You are already working on Episode 8, is that right?
Absolutely. This is going to be a crazy year. Genuinely non-stop. My husband was producing Jurassic World and I was doing The Force Awakens but at the same time we’re getting ready to start with Episode 8 in January of 2016.
Unbelievable. And you already have the story?
Yes. The story has already been worked out. In fact we’ve got the story right up until Episode 9 worked out. Not the details and the scripts are not locked but we know where we’re going and most of the beats.
Tell us more.
No can do Exec. You know many people haven’t seen Episode 7, so if I told you anything about Episode 8 that would give away spoilers and I don’t want to do that.
You must be able to give us something.
Well, I suppose I could tell you the title we’re working on at the moment.
The idea is that the next Episode will continue directly on from Episode 7 and so we had the idea that the title should reflect that continuity.
Star Wars: Episode 8: The Force Has Breakfast.
The Force has Breakfast?
Yeah. You see we thought, if I was the force what would I do one I woke up. Rian said ‘I always have breakfast straight after I’ve woken up’. And so we went with that.
Of course it wasn’t the only option. But it was the best.
What were the alternatives?
Apparently Lawrence Kasdan has a sh*t as soon as he wakes up. And J.J. Abrams flosses. But they just didn’t scan.
Star Wars: Episode 8: The Force Has Breakfast will be released in 2017.
