Hi everyone, Bryan Here…


Disney announced today that they have cast Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro in ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII‘. Kelly Marie Tran has also been cast in the film, however their roles are not known at the time, nor do I think we will find out anytime soon. Production starts today at Pinewood Studios in London and the film will debut December 15th, 2017, meaning we have a couple of years.


Director Rian Johnson (‘Brick‘, ‘Looper‘) is directing this one with Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis all returning for the sequel. Dern and Benicio both have Oscar nominations with Benicio winning an Oscar, and both have battled either in the Marvel Universe or with dinosaurs. i’m super psyched about this casting and can’t wait to see what Rian Johnson will do. More to come later.
