StarWars.com has released the first official footage from STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII and announced three new cast members! Check it out…

We already wrote a piece about the movie starting production and you can check that out here.

The additions of Laura Dern and relative unknown Kelly Marie Tran are very exciting as is the known addition of Benicio Del Toro. I’m very excited to see who they play and what their roles are in these new STAR WARS films.

Here is the first bit of official footage which looks like it was shot during their pre-production excursion to Skellig Michael back in September of 2015.
