New Star Wars: Episode VIII Aliens, Characters & Creatures Revealed


Star Wars: Episode VIII announcement teaser

Rian Johnson continues filming Star Wars: Episode VIII in Dubrovnik, Croatia where set pics have revealed a bunch of cool looking new aliens, characters and creatures.

The Daily Mail notes the scene is being filmed at the same location that HBO’s Game Of Thrones’ Kings Landing takes place featuring “Oriental-inspired garments – which recall the look of Naboo nobles and the Coruscant elite from previous films.”

Some sort of large alien cat-like creature will also be featured in the scene as a prosthetic head was scene being hoisted, and a landspeeder of some sort is also involved, in addition to various aristocratic-looking individuals.

The report also suggests the rumors of Mark Hamill and Luke Skywalker somehow being involved are true.

The umbrellas pictured are not a part of the scene, but to protect the actors from the rain and bad weather.

“Star Wars: Episode VIII” has a December 16, 2017 release directed by Rian Johnson starring Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran.
