Star Wars: Episode 8 has started being shot and photos from Ireland’s Malin Head have been revealed. The construction work for the set is underway there and there is an extensive amount of work that is being done.
The sleepy town is suddenly buzzing with activities with almost 300 crew members running all over the place to complete the task before the shooting starts in the coming weekend.
There are a lot of videos and photos of the construction work that is going on and fans are trying to figure out what is being built. iDigital Times has reported that the work that is underway is likely to create a Jedi Temple. This speculation is being made on the basis of the construction that was made in County Kerry in Ireland.
The photos also reveal structures that look like oil rigs, but there is still no confirmation on this as the structures are still not complete. The fans have also spotted a structure that looks like a ship on top of a cliff. There are speculations that the structure is either a freighter or a starfighter.
There is a lot of excitement about the Star Wars: Episode 8, as it has been for all the eight episodes. However, fans of the franchise are more excited for the upcoming film since it will see Boba Fett making an entrance. The Mandalorian bounty hunter is one of the most popular characters in the franchise and it will be a long time since he made an appearance in a Star Wars film.
Boba Fett had a lot of impact on the Empire, the Rebellion, and the Skywalkers. He was believed to be dead after falling into the Sarlacc Pit on Tatooine. Fans had been hopeful that the character is going to make an appearance in Star Wars: Episode 7, but he didn’t.
Fans are hoping that since there are no specifics about his death, Boba Fett most likely survived and is going to make an appearance in Star Wars: Episode 8.
Movie News Guide has reported that Boba Fett is going to be older than Luke and Leia and might be of the same age as Hans Solo. With news of the character enjoying a spot in the upcoming film, there is a lot of anticipation on who will play the role. There are reports suggesting that Tom Hardy is in the race to bag the role in Star Wars: Episode 8.
There has been a lot of speculation on whether Supreme Leader Snoke is Darth Plagueis or not. The fan theory, according to Melty is that Snoke isn’t completely human and is healing in the Bacta Tank and he is going to be the next Emperor Palpatine.
However, this speculation has been rubbished by Andy Serkis. He has come out to reveal that Snoke and Plagueis aren’t the same person, and there is no chance of him becoming anything else.
The one thing that Star Wars is famous for is it musical composition and the man responsible for that is none other than legendary composer, John Williams. He has been a part of the franchise for over forty years now and there are reports suggesting that he might not be working with Star Wars: Episode 8.
Cinema Blend reported that John Williams has informed the producers that he wasn’t sure whether he will be a part of the next film. While he said this, on the other hand, he doesn’t want someone else to take on his role either.
