Star Wars: Episode VIII Filming Updates: More Knights of Ren, Falcon Set Photos


More and more information continues to flood in from sources all over the internet, regarding filming of Star Wars: Episode VIII. Today we have updates on scenes from the Knights of Ren, and photos from the Millennium Falcon set…

Warning — SPOILERS — for Star Wars: Episode VIII

Our first spoiler comes courtesy of the king of filming leaks — Making Star Wars — and an update on that amazing Knights of Ren battle scene that was reported on, earlier last week.

MSW is reporting that a scene has unfolded at Ceann Sibeal in Ireland, with the medieval knights in black (which they believe to be the Knights of Ren. The same knights seen fighting Luke and Rey in a previous scene), where they knelt before a crashed and burning ship:

"There is smoke."

"A ship appears to have crashed."

"A group of men dressed as black knights with black helmets approach the smoky debris."

"All of the knights then kneel around the smoky location."

"It appears as if one of the knights perished in the crash or someone important is about to step out of it."

Perhaps Kylo and his Knights of Ren crash landed on Ahch-To, in their search for Luke Skywalker, and one of them perished in the crash, or perhaps Kylo Ren himself just hasn’t exited the burning ship, and they are awaiting him. Either way, it looks as if Kylo and the Knights of Ren have had a much tougher time of finding Luke’s planet of exile, than Rey and Chewie had. I guess having that map really was the key.

Moving on, some enterprising fans in England, went on the hunt for the Millennium Falcon set, after reading a Daily Mail article revealing photos of the ship being built in what they assumed was a lot at Pinewood Studios at London.

So, they packed up their gear and went on the hunt, hoping to sneak into the set and get some photos with the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy…but alas, she was not there. Then, they did some digging, and found that the Falcon was at Longcross Studios instead, so they went there, and with no real interference at all, were able to walk onto the set, and get some pretty spectacular photos.

The fans uploaded those photos to 28 Days Later Urban Exploration, and no the rest is history. You can view the whole album by clicking the link provided, but here’s a great shot of the Millennium Falcon parked somewhere on what I am assuming is still the planet Ahch-To, in all her glory, for Star Wars: Episode VIII.

That’s it for now, I’m sure as the weeks and months progress, the spoilers and leaks will continue to flow, so please stay tuned to Dork Side of the Force, as we keep you up to date on all the news and rumors and every little piece of information from all the Star Wars films, coming soon.
