It seemed to move at a lightspeed pace but Star Wars: Episode VIII is beginning to wrap up the principle photography phase of the production. First and foremost the best news about the wrapping up is that no one in the production was seriously injured on the set. That alone deserves a standing ovation, considering the locations and work performed for this film. Some of our favorite stars of the production have begun to tell their tale of departure via social media in the last couple of days. John Boyega and Anthony Daniels took to Instagram and Twitter. Mark Hamill let is slip this weekend that the entire production would be wrapping up on July 22nd. It’s a crazy feeling knowing that there is another Star Wars movie in the can and ready for post production. Even though Star Wars: The Force Awakens has come and gone, the idea that there is still more Star Wars coming is still a shocking feeling. For many of us old timers who went through the long dry spell of the 1980’s and 1990’s with no Star Wars, this conveyor belt of Star Wars films is something we are still getting used to. There is going to be lots of information in the next two weeks with Star Wars Celebration Europe underway next week and San Diego Comic Con soon after. It’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan and we will do our very best to bring the news and analysis here at the Post. Have a great evening everyone.
Sad yesterday. I wrapped on Ep VIII. Thanks to ALL the team especially David & Joe, Kathy & Ram, Jamie & of course RIAN. I have loved it. XX
