    They could have swapped POTC and Ep8 and have Ep 8 clear of both POTC and GOTG2. But that's 3 major Disney movies in the same summer, so I guess it's the right move.

    But damn, now the SW-Avatar war begins. Then again, Avatar 2 is no longer listed as being scheduled for December 2017 on The-numbers or Boxofficemojo.

    This makes sense. TFA made bank over the holidays with almost no competition, and plus, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 opens in May 2017 as well. It would have been audience cannibalization.

    Yep, I kept thinking to myself I wouldn't be surprised if this was delayed to December. Personally, I like the Dec release and I've also been skeptical about how they were going to promote 2 movies within 5 months of each other. And I truly believe this was a strategic move and not a production delay.

    It does suck though! The moment TFA ended I thought, "Yes, we only have to wait a year and a half for the next one!"

    I'm both sad and happy about this tbh. I'm selfishly sad because it means we have to wait longer for a new SW film but deep down I'm happy as it gives the longer to make the best film possible. 17 months between release dates was always going to be a push IMO.

    I trust Rian Johnson and Kennedy 200% after seeing TFA, so I'm okay with them taken every day they need to make the perfect Star Wars movie.

    No use complaining about this, since the wait in between films for the OT and PT was three full years. We're still getting a new Star Wars film this year, and it will continue on an annual basis.

    VII for May 2015 was rather ludicrous and VIII for May 2017 was only slightly less so and the fact they still hadn't started shooting yet was making everything razor thin for that date.

    Once May is out then you might as well go to December. I would guess that everything else will later shift as well.

    On the plus side they can re-release I-VII during the year in the lead up to VIII in the 40th anniversary year.

    Still better than 3 years (PT release rate) Plus we get anthology stories in between.

    I'm not very surprised, but at the same time I'm sad to hear this.

    Nooooo.... I want to do a line up and you can't do a line up in NYC in December. Well I guess you can, but I don't really want to freeze to death to do it.

    There goes any chance of me ever being able to see a Star Wars movie with my friends. People are too busy in December.
