Rian Johnson says Episode VIII will "explore the relationship between Luke and Rey"




  • The tone will be fun rather than dark

  • Rey, Finn, and Poe will each be facing an extremely difficult challenge (the fun kind, I guess?)

  • Rey and Luke have a strong connection and "familial themes" continue to be central to Rey's story

  • Rian is a Luke fan and the question of what's been going on with Luke is at the heart of the film

  • Episode VIII has a title already but he won't say what it is
