Making Star Wars this morning has a possible name for the “Dubrovnik planet” in . We had plenty of The Last Jedi spy photos from when the exteriors were filmed in Dubrovnik in southern Croatia, but interiors were filmed at Pinewood.
And from last week, some sketches of
altered outfits for Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren and a new kind of First Order stormtrooper.
Making Star Wars has a description of a costume for Poe Dameron – and, more interestingly, they double down on the Laura Dern rumor from last week.
→ MSW also has a (possible) detail on
what Pinewood interiors the Dubrovnik location shoot may connect to – something we haven’t seen in a Star Wars film before.
work continues in Ceann Sibeal.
Director Rian Johnson wished us @rianjohnson: HAPPY ST PATRICK’S DAY!!!! a Happy Saint Patrick’s Day with… Greenscreen and lighting equipment. Illuminating! (Mark Hamill, naturally, goes all dad joke on it.)
→ The Dubrovnik shoot
is done, but the Daily Mail still has pictures, while the Digital Nomads have more video.
John Boyega, who turns 24 today, stopped by the Empire magazine offices for his birthday, because John Boyega is a delightful human being.
Though there are reports of inclement weather, an action scene was among the things being filmed in Dubrovnik. Even more alien extras were spotted, and the Daily Mail and TMZ are today’s source for the various elicit shots. A video over at Making Star Wars shows what seems to be part of the same sequence – or will be after effects work, maybe.
Actual shooting for Episode VIII has begun, and sure enough, pictures continue to leak. They do mostly seem to be extras, or at least unknown actors, as well as props. The most curious addition seems to be someone riding a creature. Speculation has it that the rider may be another ‘stunt double’ for an actor who isn’t (as far as we know) present.
In other news,
Billie Lourd will be back, and her role will be at least a little larger this time. No word if she’ll still be sporting the hair buns.
