Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars Movie Gets a Title

Disney have confirmed that the first standalone Star Wars film will be titled Rogue One.

At a shareholders meeting this morning, company CEO Bob Iger confirmed the news, as well as sharing some information about the next chapter in the Star Wars episodic saga.

Rogue One will be directed by Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards and written by Chris Weitz, who worked on Cinderella and About a Boy. As well as the writer and director, The Theory of Everything star Felicity Jones has been announced as the movie’s first casting.

Rogue One will film in London this Summer and has a release date of 16 December 2016.

Meanwhile, Iger also announced that Looper director Rian Johnson will direct Star Wars Episode VIII, which will release on 26 May 2017. This is just a year and a half after J.J. Abrams’ Episode VII: The Force Awakens, signalling the shortest gap between any Star Wars. It would also be 40 years and one day after the release of Star Wars in 1977.
