Posted by Eric on July 27, 2014 at 04:34 PM CST

Rian Johnson, who despite the continuing lack of a Lucasfilm announcement is directing Episode VIII, Skyped into a recording of the Filmspotting podcast on Saturday night and made a few comments about the film.

"The thought of it made me so completely joyfully happy," Johnson said of the chance to direct a Star Wars movie. "I wanted to to play in this world, of literally the first movie my dad put me in the car to see."

You can read the rest of Johnson's comments here. For my part, Johnson convinced me that he has the right attitude toward Star Wars when he told the crowd, "There was something really beautiful about the prequels."
