The excitement surrounding Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens continues to grow in a huge way, as we continue to get closer to the big release of the project. With that said, once Star Wars: Episode VII has been released, we then get to look forward to the Star Wars spin-off movies, as well as Star Wars: Episode VIII.
 
 
While J.J. Abrams is directing Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, he will hand over the reigns of the franchise to Rian Johnson for Star Wars: Episode VIII, with the two working together to make the transition as seamless as possible. J.J. has now opened up about working with Rian, revealing how the two are trying to make sure they get everything just right.
 
Abrams explained, "The script for VIII is written. I’m sure rewrites are going to be endless, like they always are. But what Larry and I did was set up certain key relationships, certain key questions, conflicts. And we knew where certain things were going. We had meetings with Rian and Ram Bergman, the producer of VIII. They were watching dailies when we were shooting our movie. We wanted them to be part of the process, to make the transition to their film as seamless as possible. I showed Rian an early cut of the movie, because I knew he was doing his rewrite and prepping."
 
 
He added, "And as executive producer of VIII, I need that movie to be really good. Withholding serves no one and certainly not the fans. So we’ve been as transparent as possible. Rian has asked for a couple of things here & there that he needs for his story. He's an incredibly accomplished filmmaker & an incredibly strong writer. So the story he told took what we were doing and went in the direction that he felt was best but that is very much in line with what we were thinking as well. But that will be his movie; he’s going to do it in the way he sees fit. He’s neither asking for nor does he need me to oversee the process."
 
Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens is set to hit the big screen on December 17 in the UK and December 18 in the US. Meanwhile, Star Wars: Episode VIII is aiming for a May 26, 2017 release date in both the US and the UK.
