Episode VIII pushed back to December 15th, 2017

Originally slated for a May 2017 release, it's now been moved back. Gives them a few more months of polish and allows other Disney backed films some room to breathe in the summer.

Today, Disney and Lucasfilm announced that Star Wars: Episode VIII, originally scheduled for release in summer 2017, will now debut on December 15, 2017.

The move follows the extraordinary success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was the first Star Wars movie to premiere outside the traditional summer blockbuster window and smashed numerous records, including biggest domestic and global debuts of all time as well as the biggest domestic second and third weekends, en route to becoming the highest grossing domestic release of all time with over $861.3 million and the third biggest global release ever with $1,886.7 billion.

Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: Episode VIII is currently in preproduction and will begin principal photography in London next month. Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman will produce and J.J. Abrams, Jason McGatlin, and Tom Karnowski will executive produce. Stay tuned for exciting updates in the coming weeks.

No surprise here. TFA made gangbusters over the Christmas holiday. Of course, Disney will of course want to cash in on this.

I'm just annoyed how long I've had to wait to see Sequel era Luke in action. That's why another 6 months seems long for me because I've already been waiting 3 years for that!

Isn't it odd that the top three highest-grossing films--Titanic, Avatar, and The Force Awakens--were all widely released Dec. 19, Dec. 18, and Dec. 18?

Maybe it's not that odd. Winter time in the Western world... people looking for entertainment indoors.
