Star Wars: Episode VIII now filming, Benicio del Toro and others confirmed

The next episode in the new Star Wars trilogy has now begun filming.

Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran are to join the cast.

Del Toro was rumoured to be in the Episode VIII for a while but now its official. However Disney have been keeping it a secret as to what his role will be.

Disney shared the 30 second announcement trailer which continues from the scene at the end of The Force Awakens where Luke Skywalker played by Mark Hamill is met by Rey.

The scene appears to be shot differently however, with Rian Johnson yelling “cut” showing that the baton has been passed on from J.J. Abrams.
