While we're hardly done discussing and enjoying Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens, as well as looking ahead to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in December, yet another Star Wars film that has our attention is about go into production. Star Wars: Episode VIII is scheduled to begin filming sometime next month, and a few of the cast members have already been talking online about returning to the Galaxy far, far away. Earlier this week Daisy Ridley, who portrays Rey, shared a photo on Instagram signaling that things were heating up behind the scenes. More recently we heard from John Boyega and Anthony Daniels on social media, who play C-3PO and Finn, respectively.
First off, Anthony Daniels tweeted about reading the script for Episode VIII:
And secondly, Twitter user Noah Outlaw made note of an interesting post by John Boyega on Snapchat, where he confirms he's been training for his return as Finn:Just read Ep VIII and thought I'd share the story with you because I know you can't wait to hear it too. You do want to hear it. Don't you?— Anthony Daniels (@ADaniels3PO) January 29, 2016
John's snapchat: "Just finished training and all that for the next one, and as you can see... Finn is Back." pic.twitter.com/rfoPeIk5DX— Noah Outlaw (@OutlawNoah) January 29, 2016
It is incredibly exciting to know Episode VIII is already so close to being in full production. It's going to be a long wait until December 15th, 2017 when it hits theaters!
