'Star Wars: Episode VIII'

We know we're wading into contentious debate here regarding the whole question of Jedi as superheroes, but seriously – lightning from hands, mind control, force choking, etc. Total superhero stuff.

Naturally, after the success of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," everyone is eagerly looking forward to "Episode VIII." American director Rian Johnson and his longtime friend Ram Bergman, a prolific Israeli producer, are leading the charge on this next installment.

Filming is already underway, with the latest shoot taking place on a mega-yacht off the coast of Dubrovnik in Croatia. British star Daisy Ridley also recently confirmed that "Episode VIII" will pick up right where the last film left off. Want another rumor? The title is reportedly "The Tale of the Jedi Temple" and may involve a plot line of Luke and Rey scouring the galaxy for various important relics.

It could be two hours of Luke Skywalker staring off into the distance, and we'd still buy a ticket. "Episode VIII" will debut on Dec. 15, 2017.
