Anthony Daniels (C3-PO), has teased on his official Twitter account that he has read the story for Star Wars: Episode 8 already. This is yet another sign that filming for the movie starts very soon.
Daniels tweeted out: “Just read Ep VIII and thought I’d share the story with you because I know you can’t wait to hear it too. You do want to hear it. Don’t you?”
This is just mere days after Daisy Ridley posted a picture of what looked like the script for Star Wars: Episode 8. Lucasfilm has stated in the past that filming begins in February so all of the actors and crew are getting ready to start the sequel after celebrating the success of The Force Awakens.
Speaking of Episode 8, John Boyega (Finn), also posted an interesting message on his SnapChat (shared via Twitter). He said: “Just finished training and all that for the next one, and as you can see… Finn is Back.”
Boyega said in previous interviews that Finn has several new action sequences in Star Wars: Episode 8 and that the film is much darker than the previous one. Finn and Rey are two of the most popular new characters in Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens and it appears they will still have significant roles in the next one.
