    Episode VIII has officially begun filming.

    Biggest surprises: Laura Dern is in it, and Maz is coming back!

    One thing we've yet to consider is that Rey is a time travelling Shmi*. Rian Johnson's involvement makes it very likely.

    *Or, rather, Shmi was a time travelling Rey all along.

    Shmi is time travelling Rey who is Luke's daughter.

    Lauren Dern is Millicent Hux, mother of the General, and namesake of the cat. #canon

    Dude, if Mark liked his beard more, he could be the new Jeff Bridges. Dude looks epic!

    So, you're saying that all Luke wanted was his rug back because it really tied the place together, but instead that bunch of nihilists, the Knights of Ren, caused a load of trouble?

    In which case - who's Walter?

    EDIT: Hmm, Chewie? after all, what happens when you screw with a wookiee?

    Perhaps this ancient Jedi Temple Luke found has a bowling alley? :p

    Ahhhhh. I don't really think I can fathom how the last film will immediately segue into the next one but obviously at least some of it will.

    I think the film starts out later, with the bad guy scene, then flashes back to Luke and Rey during her training scenes.

    It works. And Threepio is Donny, really. Always being told to shut up and all.

    It's definitely going to have the Star Destroyer scene -- that's just traditional.


    (Also it's a nice reminder that Tim Zahn always started his Thrawn books with a Star Destroyer scene too).

    I'd find flashbacks a little weird. They're not very . . . Star Warsy.

    I think they've probably just been standing on the top of that hill looking at each other for two years.

    Personally, when I think Jeff Bridges, I think of him in TRON, The Giver, and True Grit. That sort of role.

    They've been training in their heads while locking eyes. It's like how you can infrared two Nintendos together and have a Pokémon battle with line of sight.

    But with the Force.
