    This still doesn't give confirmation that the Ep. VIII script is actually complete but it does kind of have a "subliminal message" feel to it...

    As @Kyle said in the staff thread; Probably first draft, but the editing and end result will depend on how TFA is final cut.

    I think that the first draft is most likely done at this point, but he's still working on the thing. Shooting doesn't begin until this Autumn.

    Shooting on Ep 8? Are you sure?

    Rogue One only starts this month/next month and it will undoubtedly go until the end of summer. Has there been any confirmation regarding VIII production dates?

    I'm not sure, but it's been said that shooting on Rogue One and Episode VIII will overlap. I'm certain that filming for Rogue One will take longer than just the Summer season, though.

    Yeah I agree. I didn't realize Ep 8 was going to shoot so soon. Fall is only a few months away, really.

    I'd assume that the script is done by now, at least a first draft. Especially after the fiasco with Michael Ardnt -- with JJ and Kasdan coming in last minute to do a page one re-write. I'm sure Kathleen Kennedy and Disney want to avoid that stress again, so they probably have stricter script deadlines for Rian.

    He's been working on the thing since around the time production wrapped on The Force Awakens. I'm sure that he and the Lucasfilm Story Group had ideas about what to do now that the groundwork was actually laid out. Now the script really just depends on what was shot for the previous movie.

    Awesome. I just joined the forum recently, so I must have missed a lot of tidbits that weren't reported by the major sites.

    On a side note, I met this Rian back in 2012. He visited my class at USC. I got to talk with him briefly during class.

    I can legitimately say he's one of the nicest, calmest, most humble guys working in the industry. He even tried to bring Looper to screen for us exclusively (before the movie was released), but Sony wouldn't let him. He's very composed and approachable, and while he's a little shy, he's always polite and respectful. I truly think the franchise couldn't be in better hands right now.
