The most anticipated film, Star Wars: Episode 8 UK release date has been pushed early. Fans of The Last Jedi in the UK will now watch the film on Dec 14, 2017. And the film will open in the US on Dec 15, 2017.
According to Screen Rant Star Wars: Episode 8 will reach multiplexes in the U.K. on December 14, 2017, before bowing in U.S. cinemas on December 15. The report further reveals that Disney made this announcement thereby continuing the pattern that was followed by the release of Star Wars: Episode 7 and Rogue One.
Speculations are rife that once the film is released a day prior to the US audience, there will be spoilers buzzing over the Internet. Perhaps, these spoilers will tease most anticipated reunion of late Carrie Fisher’s character Princess Leia Organa and Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker.
Will Carrie Fisher Be Part Of Star Wars: Episode 9?
After the sudden demise of late Carrie Fisher, fans were curious to know if she will be seen through CGI in Episode 9. But Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and Disney boss Bob Iger have already revealed that will not happen, reported CinemaBlend.
Hence it is an important task for the director of Star Wars: Episode 9, Colin Trevorrow to continue the story without a major character.
