Over the holidays Star Wars proved to the entire world that you can't keep a good franchise down. Even naysayers and nerfherders had plenty of qualms with The Force Awakens, the seventh episode renewed interest (as if it were ever lost) and brought A Galaxy Far, Far Away to a brand new generation.
After a global publicity tour the cast, including fan favorites Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac are back on set and have just finished the first day of production on Episode VIII. To accompany production announcement we were given the smallest hint of a glimpse at what's happening on set, and learned that Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro would be joining the cast. Nothing official has been announced yet, but it's already speculated that Del Toro could be a new baddy.
