With Rogue One now in theatres, the next big Star Wars movie will continue the story JJ Abrams started with The Force Awakens. Episode VIII will see Rey, Finn, Poe and Kylo Ren return to the big screen for the next episode in a galaxy far, far away.
In a recent interview Adam Driver who plays Kylo Ren discussed Episode VIII and what it was like to work with director Rian Johnson.
“He’s a brilliant filmmaker, and he wrote the script also, and he understands the importance of ambiguity and nuance. He wrote something that I think is remarkable.”
Driver also discussed how his life has changed because of Star Wars after all, it’s only the biggest franchise in history.
“It is a trip! I’m not very good at analyzing it, I guess, or even making time to attach meaning to it. So much of it is luck, and timing. I work hard but I can work hard in a vacuum.”
Star Wars: Episode VIII is written and directed by Rian Johnson and stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher. The film will land in theatres in December 2017.
