Remember how awesome Star Wars: The Force Awakens was? Remember how completely stoked we were that we only had to wait roughly a year and a half for Episode VIII?
Episode VIII director, Rian Johnson sent out the following tweet after it was announced that the release date for Episode VIII had been pushed back by SEVEN MONTHS.

Granted, this might be good in the sense that it gives the production crew more time to perfect the movie, and to finish up those frantic rewrites that are apparently going on. And, of course, we’re still getting the Anthology story Rogue One next year to tide us over, but still…poppycock.
Plus, may is Star Wars Month. It just doesn’t feel “right” doing this in December.
