Watch: Star Wars Episode VIII Production Announcement

In an update to a story we posted a couple of weeks ago, Lucasfilm have officially announced that filming for Star Wars Episode VIII has officially begun in Pinewood Studios in London, England.

In honour of the announcement Lucasfilm have released this new video with the first footage of new Director Rian Johnson shooting his first few shots of the new film. And it appears he is picking up where the last director JJ Abrams left off with a scene on top of Skellig Michael Island with Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), it appears just seconds after Force Awakens turned to credits. You can check out the footage below.

Star Wars Episode VIII is expected to hit cinemas 15th December 2017.
