Every day the set for Star Wars: Episode VIII in Dubrovnik has been being advanced more and more. The photo above comes from DuList.hr. This is a great look, as it shows the lights during the evening. All filming is going to be taking places between 4:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m., so this offers up a solid look to us of what it will be looking like in Episode VIII.
I think it looks amazing!
The latest filming news to hit is the new rumor from moscroatia.com that Rey and Luke will be involved at this location. Now, like I said, this is just a rumor as of right now.
Here is a translation that they have of their report:
Last saturday, on 27th of February, we sent Darth Vader and Stormtroopers to Dubrovnik with a sole mission – extort more information from rebel scum! And the dark side succeeded, they got (unofficially) the names of actors / characters coming this spring to Dubrovnik.
At last we unofficially know who will participate on the set in Dubrovnik. With exceptional pleasure we announce that actors probably are – Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Daisy Ridley (Rey)! It is this (father-daughter?) pair that should come to the set we have visited and presented in our own exclusive photo gallery.
This information was not easy to acquire, even more the fact our costumes were banned to show up anywhere near the set. The phenomena of our members in costumes on Stradun caused indescribable crowd and attraction, media interest, but also interest of the people of Dubrovnik who wanted to take pictures with well known villains from their favorite saga.
Of course, too much interest did not suit the production so the visit was brief, but as you can read, successfull. We have already speculated that Dubrovnik will be the planet where Luke Skywalker is, and now we (unofficially) have this confirmed by sources close to the production.
Film prep will take place on March 9 and 10, and filming will takes place March 11-16. If they are indeed filming scenes for Rey and Luke, then there is probably a good chance that we will know about Daisy Ridley and Mark Hamill being there to film! Filming in Dubrovnik is approaching fast!
