Disney and Lucasfilm has been very secretive about the movie's plot and all we know is the movie will further adventures of Luke Skywalker, Leia and Rey. Previously, Writer / director Rian Johnson dished to USA Today that film will pick up from where The Force Awakens left off.
Johnson told the outlet, "I don't want to skip ahead two years. I want to see the very next moment of what happens." Rey and Luke's relationship will be the highlight in Episode VIII. Johnson has admitted "a large part of the movie" will be spent addressing why Luke is there and what he'll do next".
Like Skywalker, Rey has been pulled into a bigger world by connecting with the Force, "but part of what's she's dealing with is the realization that she has this power and this gift", Johnson said. He added, "She's taking her first step to coming to terms with this thing inside her that she never knew was there and is just starting to reveal its potential."
Star Wars 8 currently slated to reach both US and UK cinemas on 15 December 2017.
