Now that filming on STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII is underway, you might be interested to know what the cast and crew are actually calling it on-set. THE FORCE AWAKENS was referred to as Foodies during the tenure of its production, and Episode VIII's working title is no more revealing. Carrie Fisher tweeted an image of her pup, as well as a cast chair with the name, Space Bear. I wonder if that'll stick.

One of the filming locations of Space Bear is in Croatia. The city of Dubrovnik will serve as . . . well, something in the Star Wars sequel, and while filming there won't begin until March 9th, the Star Wars News Net scored some pictures of production gearing up. Take a look!

I'm kinda getting a Naboo vibe from the city, but I'm sure Lucasfilm is still trying to distance itself a bit from the prequels. Either way, it's a pretty gorgeous location so I'm excited to see how Rian Johnson utilizes it. Maybe Finn and Poe will go on a bro-cation while Rey is training Luke on how to speak...

STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII will open on December 15, 2017.

Not sure why Lucasfilm would work so hard to distance itself entirely from the prequels. Like I get not referring to every stupid thing from the movies, which makes even more sense since the current movies are like 50-70 years after the Clone Wars and events of the PT happened. But to have places that were actually important to the overall Star Wars universe, such as Naboo, acknowledged in the sequels is not a detractor (at least IMO, I don't think it is). It just helps create a sense of a

It just helps create a sense of a closed circle I guess.

But that being said, on the other hand, the OT never acknowledged anything from the PT either (except for Clone Wars). So perhaps each trilogy will be about creating new worlds to show within the galaxy?

Lucasfilm slid in coy references to the PT in Force Awakens, the obvious being the clone army. I think now that Force Awakens let the audiences know they're in more capable hands, I'd expect some more references to the PT.
