Update: Also announced today is that Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran are joining the cast in (surprise!) unspecified roles.
Star Wars: Episode VIII officially entered production today, and it looks like it picks up right where it left off 🙂
Well, obviously that was filmed at Skellig Michael, where the final scene of Episode VII was filmed, and production begins on principal photography at Pinewood Studios today. But who cares – it has begun!
From the release:
Rey took her first steps into a larger world in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and will continue her epic journey with Finn, Poe and Luke Skywalker in the next chapter of the continuing Star Wars saga, Star Wars: Episode VIII, which began principal photography at Pinewood Studios in London on February 15, 2016.
