A series of Star Wars leaks came out this week and these drove the fans into a frenzy!
The leaks allegedly came from the set of Star Wars: Episode VIII which is currently shooting scenes in Ireland and UK.
The Sun reports that the newest Star Wars installment will be called Star Wars Episode VIII: Fall of the Resistance as shown in a video that leaked online. Although there were other leaked titles prior to this, such as The Jedi Steps and Shadow of the Sith, the latest title is thought by many to be the real one.
The source of the grainy footage works currently on the preparations for the coming Star Wars Europe Celebration event that will be held at London’s ExCel Exhibition Centre from July 15 to 17. Star Wars actors Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher who played siblings Luke Skywalker and Princess/General Leia will attend the event together with other characters that will be announced soon.
This title leak came after Making Star Wars posted details of a massive battle sequence involving Luke, Rey, Kylo Ren and the Knights of Ren in Luke’s planet of exile, Ahch-To.
According to BGR, Luke will take on and dispatch the whole squad of Knights while Rey faces Kylo Ren. Luke wields the lightsaber that he used from Return of the Jedi and the Force to defeat the Knights of Ren.
Star Wars: Episode VIII will hit cinemas on 15th of December, 2017.
In other Star Wars-related news, a series of video for Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens focusing on different characters in the game will be released by Warner Bros. The first trailer highlights X-Wing pilot Poe Dameron who can be seen saying, "Don't worry, I work best under pressure, although ideally less than two tons per square inch."
Oscar Isaac who played Poe Dameron did the voicework for the game. Other The Force Awakens stars also did the same such as Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa), Daisy Ridley (Rey), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Max von Sydow (Lor San Tekka), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), Luputia Nyong'o (Maz Kanata), and John Boyega (Finn).
Gamespot writes that Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens re-tells the story of Disney's blockbuster movie and incorporates quests that span “the time between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.”
Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, 3DS, PlayStation Vita, and PC will launch June 28th.
