As if we weren't already excited for Star Wars: Episode VIII…

Finn himself simply captioned it, "VIII."

Unfortunately, we have to wait a bit longer than expected for Episode VIII, as Disney recently announced that the film's release date had been pushed back nearly six months, to Dec. 15, 2017. The movie is being written and directed by Rian Johnson (Looper).

Meanwhile, ET got some scoop on Star Wars: Episode IX from director Colin Trevorrow, who weighed in on all the fan theories about Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).

"We're going to make sure that that answer is deeply and profoundly satisfying," Trevorrow explained. "Rey is a character that is important in this universe, not just in the context of The Force Awakens, but in the entire galaxy. She deserves it."
