‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ Officially Wraps Production With a Short Video
Filming on Star Wars: Episode VIII has been nearing an end for the past few weeks, as we’ve seen via set photos from director Rian Johnson and Daisy Ridley. As of today, Johnson has officially wrapped production on the upcoming sequel, sharing a very brief video featuring the final slate from the final shot in the film along with a special message of thanks to his cast and crew.
The (very, very, very) short video appeared on the official Star Wars Movies Facebook page, and it’s not the best quality, but you get the idea:
Johnson wrote and directed Episode VIII, which reportedly picks up right where The Force Awakens left off. We still don’t know the official title or plot, but we do know who’s returning: Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Domhnall Gleeson, Andy Serkis and Gwendoline Christie will all reprise their roles from The Force Awakens, joined by newcomers Laura Dern, Benicio Del Toro and Kelly Marie Tran.
At last week’s Star Wars Celebration Europe, Hamill assured fans that Luke Skywalker has a bigger role to play in the forthcoming sequel, and not only will he have a ton of dialogue, but it’ll be just as memorable — if not more so — than his famous lines from the original trilogy.
Star Wars: Episode VIII hits theaters on December 15, 2017.
