Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens was a force to be reckoned with when it released to cinemas worldwide last month, and fans of the intergalactic adventure are more excited than ever to continue the journey. This year we’ll see a Star Wars spin-off when Rogue One releases in December, but that’s just a tease. Many people were looking forward to the short half-year wait following that to the May 2017 release of Star Wars Episode VIII. That is, until it was announced today that Episode VIII would be delayed until December 15, 2017.
There was a lot of predictable disappointment.
Others were conflicted.
Some guessed the delay was to spite other filmmakers.
Whatever the case, Disney’s cornering the market on 2017.
This guy’s got his priorities straight, at any rate.
