The next generation of Star Wars films keeps giving us more and more to look forward to. Today, we have some pretty great news coming from Disney and LucasFilm with the announcement for the writers of Episodes VIII & IX. Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg will be the writing and producing duo on those two films.

Kasdan has been with the Star Wars Universe for a long time now, having co-written Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Two of the best films in the entire film canon. Kinberg is currently working on the X-Men First Class sequel, Days of Future Past and has quite the impressive resume. So, with the announcement of Michael Ardnt that we made last week as the writer of Episode VII and this news, I’m only getting more excited for these new films!!!
