Bad news for Star Wars fans, the release of the movie has been delayed!

Looks like we're being forced to wait!

Star Wars Episode 8 has been delayed by 7 months!

The Force Awakens was definitely one of our favourite movies of 2015 so we’ve been getting super excited and counting down the days to the release of the next film in the Star Wars saga.

Take our Star Wars quiz here!

May 26, 2017 was the date we first expected it to hit cinemas but the guys who make these kind of decisions have announced we’ll have to wait until December!

Their plan is to make the movie as huge as The Force Awakens was over Christmas last year!

We’ll be keeping our beady eyes on all things Episode 8, so keep checking Fun Kids for all the latest news.
