For those who haven’t seen The Force Awakens, the production announcement trailer starts off with the very last scene in the movie.
That said, Disney had produced a short clip to announce that they’ve begun filming Episode VIII. It does tease a bit about what should be happening in the sequel.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Episode VIII will have several returning cast members from The Force Awakens but will also include Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern, and Kelly Marie Tran.
Rian Johnson (Looper) will be directing with a release on December 15th, 2017.
