Production of the next main Star Wars movie, Episode VIII (8) has begun, as if you had any doubts about a sequel. A really, really short teaser has arrived on the internet, letting fans know that work has begun.While the movie isn’t due to release until December 15th, 2017, all we know is a list of returning characters from the previous movie, and hopefully some more of MarkHamill. New star arrivals for the follow up will include Benicio del Toro as a villain, who featured in Guardians of the Galaxy as the collector, as well as Laura Dern who you would recognise as Dr Ellie Sattler from Jurassic Park. What role she will play, we don’t know yet.
Unlike Episode VII, Episode VIII will be directed by Rian Johnson instead of JJ Abrams.
