December is fast approaching and fans have been longing to see what's in store for them when "star wars episode 8 The Last Jedi" drops. New information suggests that the opening crawl of the upcoming sequel will be featuring a very iconic ship this time not to mention that it will take faithfuls a step back in time.

The opening crawl

If reports are anything to go by, it is believed that the opening crawl for "The Last Jedi" will showcase Han Solo's Millennium Falcon. It has grown to become some sort of a staple in the "Star Wars" franchise to kick off their films with massive ships from either the Empire or the rebels' side.

This time, it's the smuggler's ship's turn to welcome the fans to the latest film sequel.

In line with this, it was also mentioned that the opening scene of "Episode 8" will be like a flashback as it is believed to feature the tail end of "The Force Awakens" where Rey alongside Chewbacca and R2D2 flew all the way to the watery planet of Ahch-To to meet up with Luke Skywalker who is speculated by most of the fandom to be the last Jedi.

Lit cameos

Meanwhile, John Boyega who plays Finn in the film may well seem to have confirmed in an interview the cameos in "The Last Jedi." When asked by BBC Radio4 if royalties Prince William and Harry were given lines during their Stormtrooper stint, he responded that those were taken out. Boyega jokingly added that he had enough of hiding those secrets as photos of the two on set were leaked long ago.

He also went on stating that "Mad Max" star Tom Hardy was seen on the set of the upcoming film.

The antagonist's fate

Adam Driver, on the other hand, tipped about Kylo Ren's fate in "Episode 8." In an interview with "Today's" Willie Geist, he stated that he hopes that the fans will favor what happens to his character in the inbound sequel, adding that it is something unexpected.

Kenobi spinoff gets a director

In other news, another "Star Wars" spinoff is slowly taking shape as reports suggest that director Stephen Daldry may be tapped to helm the Obi Wan Kenobi standalone featurette. However, Disney and Lucasfilms has not yet picked the right man to portray the lore's iconic Jedi Master.

Daldry, for the uninitiated, is an accomplished producer and director of both theater and film. He was nominated for three Academy Awards for the films "Billy Elliot" in 2000, "The Hours" in 2002, "The Reader" in 2008, and "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" that went out in 2011.

"Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi" is slated to come out on December 15 while the Kenobi film is believed to be released sometime next year. Check out a video about "The Last Jedi" here:
