Confirmed Cast Member for STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII

Written by Andrew Pollard Thursday, 17 September 2015

Movie News

Whilst Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens is due to hit screens later this year, details are still sketchy on what exactly to expect from Rian Johnson’s Episode VIII. Well now there’s news on one confirmed cast member.

Obviously a lot of what happens in Episode VII will have ramifications on how things play out in Episode VIII, which is why so little is known on Johnson’s film at this stage. As such, this confirmed cast member for Episode VIII could be classed as a spoiler for The Force Awakens. You’ve been warned…

SPOILERS
 

With some Episode VIII production work having recently taken place in Ireland, Irish Examiner has brought words on some delays due to weather conditions, but also news on a returning cast member who was spotted on set. That person was Mark Hamill.

Hamill, better known to many a genre fan as simply Luke Skywalker, was present at the Portmagee shoot. Now despite speculation over his potential death in The Force Awakens, this would suggest that Luke managers to make it through Episode VII by hook or by crook. Alternatively, maybe Skywalker could even be seen as a ‘Force Ghost’ in Episode VIII, much like Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and Anakin have been in previous movies.

Very little is known on Episode VIII right now bar Rian Johnson directing and Benicio Del Toro being lined up as the villain of the film, which is currently set for a May 26th, 2017 release.

Before any of that, of course, J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens hits screens on December 18th.
