EPISODE VIII: RETURN OF THE FALCON!
We're halfway through the top secret (as always!) filming of EPISODE VIII, and now its time for the production team to commence using the vast controlled environment spaces of the London Pinewood Studios backlot, as what seems to be a small portion of Luke Skywalker's island seen in EPISODE VII is erected alongside a seemingly revised Millennium Falcon prop, now created in its entirety for the latest film (shades of EMPIRE's behind the scenes making, what with its full-size built Falcon back in 1979). Built above them is another planet- a street of some kind, as well as a massive conference/senate type structure-perhaps linked to Benecio del Toro's mystery character, and presumably linked to earlier location shooting captured in Dubrovnik.
