Star Wars: Episode VIII has a working title plus set pictures from Dubrovnik
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.
