Episode VIII, di­rected and writ­ten by Looper’s Rian John­son, was filmed un­der the work­ing ti­tle of “Space Bear”.

It’ll pick up where it left off on Ahch-To, with Luke and Rey.

Looks like Cap­tain Phasma made it out of that trash com­pactor on Starkiller Base – Gwen­do­line Christie’s back in Episode VIII. Ex­pect her to have a big­ger role this time out – it can’t be much smaller!

Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Beni­cio del Toro have joined the cast. All we know is that Beni­cio del Toro is prob­a­bly a bad guy

Some scenes have been filmed in reg­u­lar Game Of Thrones lo­ca­tion Dubrovnik.

And Adam Driver, Daisy Ri­d­ley and Mark Hamill have been spot­ted ar­riv­ing for film­ing in Ire­land, mak­ing us think there might be a face off be­tween Kylo Ren, Luke and Rey.

John “Finn” Boyega has said Episode VIII will be “a dif­fer­ent take, darker, big­ger” than its pre­de­ces­sor.

There may be more movies af­ter Episode IX, though Dis­ney CEO Bob Iger has said, “I don’t know how many, I don’t know how of­ten.”
