-- "Star Wars" took to its website and YouTube to make a big announcement today -- the cast list for "Episode VIII." Plus, the movie has begun filming.
First, a 34-second video features new shots of Luke Skywalker that look to be a connector between "The Force Awakens" and "Episode VIII." If you haven't seen "The Force Awakens," you may not want to watch this clip.
"Rey took her first steps into a larger world in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' and will continue her epic journey with Finn, Poe, and Luke Skywalker in the next chapter of the continuing Star Wars saga, Star Wars: Episode VIII, which began principal photography at Pinewood Studios in London on February 15, 2016," the release read.
"Episode VIII" is set to hit theaters on Dec. 15, 2017.
