'Star Wars: Episode VIII' Has a 'Really Great' Script, Says Adam Driver

"The script they’ve come up with is really great," teased Adam Driver.

The writing, he told an Entertainment Weekly reporter, is one of them.

"The script they've come up with is really great," he gushed.

Driver gave a few other tidbits about life behind the scenes, as have a few of his co-stars recently. Here's what we know about the upcoming film so far.

1. The First Order and the Resistance are in conflict still: For better or worse, some things remained unchanged. "They're still at war. It's still 'Star Wars,'" noted Driver. "They're not at peace!"

3. The success of "The Force Awakens" hasn't been all-consuming: Though the last "Star Wars" installment set box office records and grossed more than $2 billion worldwide, Driver insisted that he "didn't turn into a new person." "Nothing happened to me," he said. "But a lot of people saw it, and that was good."

5. It picks up where the last installment left off: At the end of "The Force Awakens," Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey, tried to give Luke Skywalker's lightsaber back to him. Judging by last month's production announcement, that's where "Episode VIII" will begin.

"Star Wars" is produced by Lucasfilm, a subsidiary of Disney, which is the parent company of ABC News.
