There's been a lot of commotion after Lucasfilm announced that Han Solo directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller had to leave the Star Wars spinoff because of creative differences, however despite all the anxiety the shake-ups been bringing it seems like the franchise has some good news to soothe over fans.

While production on Han Solo continues to wait for further assessment by new director Ron Howard, it looks like the highly anticipated sequel trilogy installment, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is about to finish post-production.


Speaking in an interview with The Talkhouse Podcast, The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson not only discusses his vision for The Force Awakens sequel, he also gives an update on the film's production. According to the filmmaker, post-production for the movie is expected to end sometime in August – a good date to finish with the film releasing in December this year.

A big budget film always requires a lot of check-ups, and an early post-production end gives Johnson a lot of time to make changes if necessary.

Featuring Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Anthony Daniels, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Laura Dern, Benicio Del Toro and Kelly Marie Tran, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to premiere on December 15, 2017.
