When the production crew for Star Wars Episode VIII was filming on location in Dubrovnik, Croatia, there was a lot of speculation about what sort of scene was being shot there. Now, thanks to our friends at MakingStarWars.net we may have an idea. As usual, there is a chance that this may be false, however if you are trying to avoid all Episode VIII spoilers then stop reading now. This is you SPOILER ALERT!-
"By the sounds of things being filmed right now, a casino is featured in Star Wars: Episode VIII. It seems like the sets I’m hearing about are for what sounds like the interiors of the Dubrovnik filming, which is the later part of the first act of the film. We cannot say for sure if the whole entire planet is a casino or known for being a gambling planet."
They also add that the interior scenes for the casino are being filmed on the 007 stage at Pinewood Studios.
