By: Benjamin Hart

The Force Awakens isn't even out of theaters yet and production on its sequel has already gone into full swing. Yesterday it was announced that Star Wars: Episode VII had begun filming. In addition, members of the cast and crew took to social media to react to the news and give updates about their returning to work on the new film.

First off, Luke Skywalker himself reacted to the announcement with a hashtag filled tweet:

Later, director Rian Johnson had a pretty hilarious tweet marking the wrapping of their first day of filming:

John Boyega(Finn) also chimed in:

Daisy Ridley(Rey) as well posted the Episode VIII teaser video to her Instagram along with some words regarding the news that Kelly Marie Tran had joined the cast:

Its awesome to know that all our favorites from The Force Awakens, along with some new faces, are hard at work on the next installment in the saga. It will be a while before we see the fruits of their labor though, as Episode VIII on December 15th, 2017. At least we have Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to enjoy in the meantime.
