Production on Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars Episode VIII” has been underway for a few weeks but much of the work has been taking place in sound stages and behind security walls in London which has kept the paparazzi and fans out.
The production however has since shifted to Dubrovnik in Croatia where it’s harder to control security and so some photos have gone online of alien, vehicle and set designs being employed by the production – which you can see below. The film itself still has plenty left to film and won’t hit cinemas until December next year.

In related news, one of the film’s key stars is John Boyega who took a break from filming his role as Finn to visit the Royal London Hospital on behalf of the Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity. He also spent time with Daniel Bell, a 5-year-old fan of his character who is battling a brain tumor, and the pair help deliver toys to his fellow patients.
