The events may have happened a long time ago, but we're going to have to wait a bit longer to see the next main Star Wars film. Disney and Lucasfilm have just announced that Star Wars: Episode VIII has been pushed back to December 15, 2017. It was previously scheduled for May of that year.

The eighth mainline movie in the series is being directed by Rian Johnson (Looper) and will continue the adventures of Rey, Finn, Poe, Luke Skywalker and the rest of the crew that we saw in the record-breaking Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

If you absolutely need more Star Wars in your life, though, don't worry too much. You'll be getting another movie soon -- this year, in fact. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is hitting theaters December 16. The side-story/prequel stars Felicity Jones and tells the story of a group of Rebel spies on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star.

Disney says that Episode VIII will begin principle photography next month in London.
