“Star Wars 7” has not yet come out and filming has already begun on the sequel. Now two old friends have been seen on set (spoilers!). And Benicio Del Toro said his Star Wars 8 role might not be a bad guy after all.
The island of Skellig Michael sits off the southwest coast of Ireland and has also been a part of the galaxy far, far away since the filming of Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens. The shoot generated negative reviews because it allegedly violated nature conservation: Rian Johnson (“Looper”), JJ Abrams’ successor director, however, sailed with his crew to the green and rocky island to film “Star Wars 8”. After the first day of filming on September 14, 2015 was canceled or in the water due to the weather, it began a day later, with Mark “Luke Skywalker” Hamill and Kenny Baker (R2-D2). This information comes from The little movie and they are also plausible because Hamill’s son Nathan Hamill recently, and certainly not by chance, good impressions of Skellig Michael’s nature and Ireland. Instagram aware.
Mark Hamill became known with the first “Star Wars” trilogy (1977 to 1983) from the time of publication, played the farmer boy / Jedi Luke Skywalker, and to the delight of fans, he again took on the role for “Star Wars : Episode VII “. according to rumors
Luke only has a brief appearance in the new part. He lives as a wise Jedi in exile, for which Skellig Michael has to serve. The new heroes Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega) are looking for Luke, they want to bring him his old lightsaber, which is key in the fight against the dark side of the force.
Kenny Baker is one of the few actors to be credited for the previous six episodes of “Star Wars.” the remote control did not work as expected). So it stands to reason that they would recruit him for “Star Wars 7” and “Star Wars 8,” even if an actor no longer necessarily has to be in the robot.
To update: A new report from irishexaminer.com Jimmy Vee is on the set of the movie. The Irish side has posted a photo of the actor to show him outdoors. Colleagues write that Vee should play R2, which is why the message about Kenny Baker may be wrong. The fact that Baker is not on set makes sense insofar as he is 81 years old and shooting on the rugged island of Skellig Michael can have dangerous sides.
Apparently not in Skellig Michael, but definitely in the cast of “Star Wars: Episode VIII” is Benicio Del Toro (“Traffic – The power of the cartel”). Rumor has it he’ll be playing a villain, but across the street Entertainment tonight He said to himself now vaguely: “I don’t know if he’s a bad guy. People say it, but it’s like reading a different script than mine. It’s good to keep people in the dark, some mystery is good. If you want to believe he is the villain, please “. At the beginning of September Del Toro already restricted: “I’m something like the villain.” The statements could mean that the Oscar winner plays a character that the “Star Wars 7 Like antagonist Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), JJ Abrams said of him that he does not see himself as someone who does evil.” One thing’s for sure: Benicio Del Toro is also bound by Disney’s strict confidentiality duty, which “C-3PO” actor Anthony Daniels publicly complained about.
“Star Wars 8” begins in Germany on May 25, 2017, “Star Wars 7” on December 17, 2015.
