More ‘Star Wars Episode VIII’ Dubrovnik Set Photos Surface

Star Wars The Force Awakens JJ Abrams Lucasfilm

New Dubrovnik Episode VIII set photos have arrived! These updated set photos from today show how nicely things are coming along. For weeks now we have been speculating on what filming for Episode VIII in Dubrovnik would entail. We of course still don’t know exactly what they will be filming here, but now with these photos of what they are creating, we have some idea of what things are going to look like.

The Dubrovnik Tourist Board informed everyone that film preparation will go down March 9 and 10 from 6:00 PM to 12:00 AM, and then filming will take places March 11-16 from 4:00 PM to 4:00 AM. We’re getting close! Check out the set photos over at the The Dubrovnik Times.

I really love what I’m seeing here. What they are filming in Dubrovnik is going to be an all new planet I think. Recently some people have been saying that it could be Naboo, but again, I’m thinking it’s going to be somewhere different. It is going to be exciting to see what they end up filming there for sure. What is going to be going down at this location? I’ve been coming up with so many different ideas as to what could be happening here!

A popular theory is that this will be where Benicio Del Toro’s character could be from. I think that is certainly a good possibility, but there’s no way to really know. That would be easier to guess at if we knew who he was going to be playing. We know he is going to be a villain, but other than that we don’t know anything at the moment. I’m pumped to find out!

I’ve speculated that maybe this will be a place that the Resistance and the First Order will be trying to one up each other at. Maybe there is something here that they both want and that could lead to some awesome sequences! As far what characters we could see here, there’s just really no information at the current moment to take a guess at that. We could definitely find out which actors are there once filming begins though. Rey and Finn could be involved in another awesome chase sequence through these streets! We will see!
