The official title for Episode VIII has yet to be announced, but the film began principal photography at Pinewood Studios in London on February 15, 2016, and is written/directed by 'LOOPER' helmer Rian Johnson - a fantastically talented sci-fi alum and the perfect man to take over the reigns from J.J. Abrams.

Disney and Lucasfilm also confirm that Episode VIII will continue the saga of Daisy Ridley's REY, so we can finally expect some closure for our new favorite heroine.
Oh Love, thy name is Rey...
Will she be revealed as a Skywalker? And how will this love triangle work out? We can't wait to see more from these three, alongside Luke and Leia!
We're just as excited to see Rey and Poe meet on screen as we are for anything else!
