Star Wars VIII is still something like eighteen months away, but there's still some really exciting news!!!

Star Wars VIII will be in theaters December 15th, 2017. Yes, that's more than a year away! But the latest rumor is that Frank Oz is on his way to the British set where Star Wars: Episode VIII is currently filming! Oz is the voice of Yoda.

So, there's a possibility that Yoda is going to be in the new Star Wars movie!!! But, wait - what that, you say? Yoda passed on into The Force in Return of the Jedi? Yeah, so? He can still be a Force ghost mentoring and guiding Luke Skywalker and Rey in the next film...and possibly dropping some mysterious and enigmatic hints as to who Rey really is. Until all the secrets are explained in Episode IX.

Until then, check out this cool preview of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, starring Felicity Jones...who could be playing (dun-dun-duhhhhhnnnn!!!) Rey's mother!
