Production teaser for Star Wars Episode VIII gets releasedBy Robin-Leigh Chetty 16 February 2016 | Categories: news
Last week we reported that Disney and Lucasfilm began principle photography on Star Wars Episode VIII. Now, the producers have a little tidbit to ensure fans keep salivating. Roughly 10 seconds of film footage has been released for the upcoming movie, which kicks off where The Force Awakens left off.
We see Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), now far older, far beardier and well versed in the ways of the Force, as he sees Rey (Daisy Ridley) in the distance. Rey reaches into her bag to reveal Luke's old lightsaber, used in The Force Awakens to fight Kylo Ren. There's a fairly long pause before director Rian Johnson (Looper) says, "Cut… beautiful."
While this clip offers next to nothing about what Episode VIII will be about, it does go to show that we'll click on just about anything to do with Star Wars.
