Hey Star Wars fans! I've got some exciting news for you! Star Wars: Episode VIII is now filming! Principal photography began at Pinewood Studios in London on February 15, 2016.
Here's an interesting fact. Apparently, Disney and Lucasfilm are utilizing drones to make sure that spying doesn't happen on their production in Croatia. There are rumors that they will engage in drone warfare with people that are using drones to get pictures of the set and the cast. Plus, there's a rumor that they have 600 guards. Wow, right?
Star Wars: Episode VIII will premiere December 15, 2017. The new cast members include: Benecio del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran. Lucasfilm confirmed that the following will return: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis.
What do you guys think of the new cast members? Star Wars: Episode VIII seems so far, far away! See what I did there?
