I always think they should be released at Christmas anyway, much more magical plus better for toys sales.

Wish my image sig would work

I don't like knowing that they've got all these films lined up, makes the whole thing pretty soulless and cynical.

I thought they had already confirmed they were taking over the Xmas release slot for all the new Star Wars movies?

That changed with Han Solo and Ep 9, which are set for May/June.

It's been that way ever since Empire Strikes Back was subtitled "Episode V".

It's bullcrap: I like the festive scheduling. It's becoming part of my tradition.

I prefer it too, and it makes more sense around Disney's other films. May is usually Marvel's month

Anyone seen the merch for Episode 8? Some sweet/weird new designs. Can't wait to see them in action! :D

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Yeah I find it odd that they keep aiming for a may/June release for the star wars films. I would have thought the success of the last two would have convinced them to keep releasing at Christmas. Surely u want to keep star wars and marvel apart so they don't impact on each other.

On the toys I agree there are some cool looking designs.

Kind of, instead of Ewoks though it will be Gungans to link the three trilogies together.

I amazed how much gooseberry fool JJ is getting. The remake/reboot movie NEEDED to be made again after the prequels and he did it well, good even. I'm not even a big Star Wars fan but it captured what Star Wars is.

I agree. I'm not a massive Star Wars fan either so maybe that explains why we liked it.

Ignoring the re-hash criticisms of Ep7, I found it more problematic in terms of world building/setting - not confident he can bring it together to a successful close given how unsatisfying vague/wooly it started.

That and galactic fast travel shrinking the universe scale

(Characters were good though!)

I'm all for JJ. I loved the force awakens, just need to dial back the poetry this time.
