Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

From website...

In 1999, 2002, and 2005, devoted fans stood outside of Hollywood's Chinese Theater for weeks - waiting eagerly for the next installment of the fabled Star Wars saga, and gathering in force to celebrate the next piece of cinematic history. Since 1977, lining up has been a hallmark of the Star Wars experience. - the organizers of the enormously successful Star Wars prequel lines - once again stood in line in 2015 and 2016, for both "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and "Rogue One", raising money for their long time charity partner, The Starlight Children's Foundation. This is only the start of the next chapter as we gear up for our next line event for "Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi" where we will be lining up again with unprecedented access to the forecourt of the world famous TCL Chinese Theater IMAX!

From the Hollywood Reporter website...

Hours before Star Wars: The Last Jedi opened at the historic TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, the late Carrie Fisher was honored by her brother, Todd. Among a throng of fans and others dressed in Star Wars costumes, the Princess Leia actress was remembered with a large plaque. "Dedicated to Carrie by the TCL Chinese Theatre, her Star Wars home since 1977 'We love you Carrie,'" the plaque read, according to Twitter posts. Fisher died Dec. 27, 2016. She completed all of her work on The Last Jedi before her passing. TCL Chinese Theatre did not immediately respond to a request for more information on the event. It was at the exact same theater in 1977 where George Lucas knew he had a hit on his hands when he saw the massive lines for the original Star Wars movie on opening day, he has recalled in previous interviews.
