'Star Wars: Episode VIII' Begins Filming!

Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed that Star Wars: Episode VIII has begun filming!

Production was originally intended to begin in January, but right around the time the release date was pushed from May, 2017 to December 15, 2017, principal photography was moved back a bit as well.

“There is no better way to propel this franchise into the future than producing quality products,” Bob said in a statement (via EW). “Filming of Star Wars: Episode VIII, the next chapter of the legendary saga, has just commenced and it will be in theaters December 2017. And production of Episode IX, a 2019 release, has also begun.”

Rian Johnson is directing, with Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Gwendoline Christie, and more expected to return.
