Man at His Best

Here's your very first glimpse of Star Wars: Episode VIII

Hey Luke.

There are 667 days until you can once again sit inside a dark theatre and watch that familiar yellow text scroll up the screen teasing a new story. Even though Disney delayed its release by about seven months, the next chapter of Star Wars will (allegedly) be out on December 15, 2017. And filming began yesterday at Pinewood Studios in London. To celebrate, they've shared this oh-so-painfully-brief clip. There's Luke! There's Rey! Cut! Damn. This is going to be a tough 22 months. The good news is Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro have officially joined the cast.
