Star Wars: Episode VIII Begins Filming!

Lucasfilm has announced that principal photography began at London’s Pinewood Studios this morning on Star Wars: Episode VIII, and obviously we’re thrilled. The new film, written and directed by Rian Johnson continues the storyline from The Force Awakens and Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Bodega, Oscar Issac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendolyn Christie, and Andy Serkis will all be returning! New cast members will include Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern, and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran.
