Star Wars: Episode VIII Might Not Be as Mysterious as The Force Awakens
Good. Spare some Bothan lives.
J.J. “Benedict Cumberbatch isn’t Khan” Abrams has a thing for keeping secrets about his movies, but not every director feels the same way. That might mean Star Wars: Episode VIII’s spoiler-assassins will be a little more lax.
That’s what Star Wars star Daisy Ridley told Entertainment Tonight about director Rian Johnson’s approach to The Force Awakens’ sequel:
It’s still very lovely and warm and friendly, just like seven was. I think Rian actually wants to be a bit cheekier with the little tidbits of information that come out…
…You can see, even with the way Mark and Carrie posted pictures with their chairs, it’s a little bit freer.
Ridley’s referring, of course, to these adorable shots:

Personally, I thought some of the secrecy around The Force Awakens might have hurt my eventual movie experience, because I was expecting that shroud of mystery to be covering some huge revelations that didn’t really come (not to say there weren’t some … uh … surprises). Whether or not a slight change of approach with the change of directors helps the end product, if it means more set pics of dogs, I’m 100% on board.
