Star Wars 8 News: Production Set to Begin in Ireland This Month for Episode VIII

From iDigitalTimes

Star Wars: The Force Awakens still has several more months to go before its highly-anticipated release, but that’s not stopping moves from being made on the follow up – Star Wars: Episode VIII.

Reports initially emerged on Wednesday that the The Force Awakens crew was regrouping in Ireland this month for last minute shoots, but Lucasfilm rebuffed those rumors shortly later. The production team is actually heading across the pond to shoot footage for Rian Johnson’s 2017 sequel, Episode VIII.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Heather Humphries, Ireland’s arts minister, confirmed the news via Irish TV network RTÉ. Apparently the confusion surfaced because Lucasfilm did not specify which ‘Star Wars’ film was being worked on.

Little is known about Star Wars 8 in terms of plot and characters. As mentioned, Rian Johnson is attached to write and direct the eight installment. Guardians of the Galaxy star Benicio Del Toro has also revealed that he will play the main villain role, but we do not know anything about his character, nor has the studio or anyone else involved confirmed that news.

Episode VIII will be the third feature in the new Star Wars franchise following J.J. Abrams’ Episode VII – The Force Awakens as well as the series’ first “anthology” film, titled Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Star Wars: Episode VIII is set to hit theaters on May 26, 2017.
