Official: Episode VIII Principal Photography To Begin In January 2016

    One of the most interesting points of note from this weekends LA The Force Awakens press junket was confirmation from Kathleen Kennedy that principal photograhy for Episode VIII begins in earnest in January.

    Some scenes have already been shot on Skellig Michael in September of this year, but the cast and crew assemble once more in the new year for the full shoot.

    So, hot on the heels of The Force Awakens we can expect cast announcments aplenty as the third movie under the Disney banner goes into full swing.
