:: A trilogy of fan-fic set after Episode VI Return of the Jedi, and inspired by George Lucas' historical draft concepts ::
February 2016
Episode VIII begins principal production at Pinewood & on location !
29th February 2016
After a brief delay in January, Star Wars Episode VIII commenced principal filming in February at Pinewood Studios in the UK ! Notwithstanding some additional shooting last autumn at the 'Skellig Michael' island off Ireland, this marks the next chapter in the Saga. The Official Site noted the start, and confirmed the returning cast and new faces :

  • Mark Hamill - Luke Skywalker
  • Carrie Fisher - Leia Solo
  • Anthony Daniels - See Threepio
  • Adam Driver - Kylo Ren (Ben Solo)
  • Daisy Ridley - Rey
  • John Boyega - Finn
  • Oscar Isaac- Poe Dameron
  • Lupita Nyong’o - Maz Kanata
  • Domhnall Gleeson - General Hux
  • Gwendoline Christie - Captain Phasma
  • Andy Serkis - Supreme Leader Snoke

  • Benicio Del Toro
  • Laura Dern
  • Kelly Marie Tran

    Clearly, this next chapter will illustrate Rey's training under the Jedi Master Luke Skywalker ; and might also reveal more of her parentage - whether she is a Skywalker, or a Solo [which I personally believe !], or even someone else entirely ! Both Daisy and John have been apparently training in fitness and fencing, so we can expect a lot of physical action from them ! Another dramatic question is the state and agenda of the First order, and its leader Snoke, now that their military action has been revealed to the New Republic at large, and that their 'Starkiller Base' has been destroyed.

    In addition, pre-production on-location set dresssing was spotted in Dubrovnik, Croatia : the high rounded doorways are indeed intriguing and really could be anywhere and represent any familiar or new species.... but I recall a TFA rumour that had Leia address a Hutt Council, and I wonder if this rumour was actually for Episode VIII, and this architecture could be Hutt ??!
    Details are starting to emerge about the date and content for the dvd / blu-ray release of The Force Awakens. There is still some confusion as to whether the release is scheduled for April or for May, but some of the extra content may contain up to seven deleted or extended scenes. Also the possibility that the dvd and blu-ray formats might be bundled together ?? Fan site StarWarsNewsNet lists some of the features :

  • Secrets Of The Force Awakens : A Cinematic Journey
  • The Story Awakens : The Table Read
  • Building BB-8
  • Crafting Creatures
  • Blueprint of a Battle : The Snow Fight
  • The Visual Magic Of The Force
  • John Williams : The Seventh Symphony
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Force For Change
    As Leia Solo rockets away from the exploding Imperial gas factory complex on Kessel, her 'Devil Squadron' of Mon Calamarian Corraller starfighters and the extra flight of A-Wings piloted by the seven Jedi Elders follow on her tail exhaust ! In the illustrated fan-fic Episode VII : Plague of Doom the nefarious aura gas production facility explodes, starting a chain reaction through the pipes and back into the cliff face in which the Imperial operation is hidden !
    As Leia's 'Devil Squadron' rockets away from the fiery explosion a chain-reaction begins fresh explosions leading into the Imperial complex hidden within the cliff face  !
    You can see the VE artwork in the 'Kessel' art gallery as well as in the online illustrated story, and you can discuss this in the forum here !
