Star Wars Episode VIII Begins Filming!

Posted: February 15, 2016 in Movies

Disney just wanted to remind us the next chapter in the Star Wars saga is filming and on course for it’s 2017 release. ^ You’ll find the vid showcases the kick off of filming on Episode VIII. Officially it began today but I suspect that’s from a few months back which means either Rian Johnson needs a co-director credit on Episode VII or he’s just copied the same shot for the opening of his movie haha.

Disney confirmed three new cast members today. Drum roll please….The excellent Benicio Del Toro and Laura Dern have joined the production along with Kelly Marie Tran.

No news on what sort of roles they’ll be playing but I’d guess and say….a bad guy for Del Toro, it’d be boss if Dern was playing a villain too but I doubt it and with Tran…maybe a love interest for Finn? I’m clutching at straws here, I have no idea. Either way Dern and Del Toro are boss and the film is lucky to have them.

I enjoyed Episode VII so I’m looking forward to VIII when it arrives in 2017.
