One of the most anticipated aspects of Star Wars Episode VIII is finally getting see Luke Skywalker in action. Now, thanks to our friends at MakingStarWars.net we may have an idea about what Luke will be doing in a scene from the movie (and where that is). 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!
As previously reported, the Dubrovnik scenes are believed to be the exterior scenes for a casino. Now, as for what's going on there, according to MSW,
- The casino scene: There are lots of different aliens, like the bar (cantina) sequence in A New Hope but on a larger scale than we’ve seen before. (Note: We’re waiting on the details of their attire which will confirm Dubrovnik or not)
- Luke walks around the casino looking for someone (the players involved have no idea who).
This sounds awesome! It may be that we've barely seen anything from Luke Skywalker in the last 30+ years, but even the idea of Luke just moving methodically through a casino looking for someone sounds so cool. And given that this scene takes place in a casino, could the person is looking for be Lando? There were some old rumors of Lando having a role in Episode VIII going back to this time last year, and a casino would be a fun place to meet an old swindler/gambler like Lando.
MSW also had some more minor details about the scenes involving Laura Dern's character and Poe Dameron,
- Pick-up shots from the evacuation sequence with Laura Dern and Poe’s characters were done this week.
- Lots of people evacuate into smaller ships.
As always, this is just a rumor until confirmed or denied by Lucasfilm or Disney.
