Rian Johnson Posts Another Behind the Scenes Picture From 'Episode VIII' on Tumblr

By: Dominic Jones

Despite the immense secrecy surrounding Star Wars Episode VIII, director Rian Johnson has been surprisingly willing to share content from the set on social media.  So far during the filming, Johnson has tweeted a picture from the set on the first day of production and posted picture of cinematographer Steve Yedlin on the Millennium Falcon set to his Tumblr. Today he posted another picture to his Tumblr, showing Lupita Nyong'o doing her motion capture performance for Maz Kanata. Check out the image below,

It's cool to see anything from the set and it's nice to the director of the film being so willing to share what's going on during the production.  Obviously, none of Johnson's tweets have been ground breaking.  They mostly just confirm stuff we already knew (like Maz would be back, the Falcon would be in the film, etc.).
