Posted by: on Feb 15, 2016 | No Comments

Today the official StarWars.com released some news and a special video clip showcasing that  Star Wars: Episode 8 is officially in production.  The clip has Rey and Luke on the island of Skellig Michael off the coast of Ireland that serves as Luke Skywalker present location when Episode 7 came to an end. Here are a few notes from Starwars.com.

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.

Star Wars: Episode VIII, which is written and directed by Rian Johnson and continues the storylines introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, welcomes back cast members Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis.  New cast members will include Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro, Academy Award nominee Laura Dern, and talented newcomer Kelly Marie Tran.

Watching this clip pushed my hype meter through the roof since I’m a big Luke Skywalker fanboy.  I can’t wait to see Episode 8 with 2017 just around the corner. Star Wars: Episode VIII is scheduled for release December 15, 2017
