'Star Wars' first spinoff movie is 'Rogue One', Episode VIII due May 2017

Because every movie must have its own cinematic universe, Disney is expanding the reach of Star Wars. While we wait for Episode VII to arrive later this year, today at a shareholder meeting Disney’s CEO Bob Iger announced details on two more movies in the saga. The first Star Wars movie taking place outside of the core saga will be Rogue One. It’s written by Chris Weitz (Antz, About a Boy), directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla), and so far has cast actress Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything). It’s scheduled for release December 16, 2016, while the next big Star Wars saga film, Episode VIII will arrive the following spring. Written and directed by Rian Johnson (Looper), it’s coming to the screen on May 16, 2017
