In hour hour of needed levity, a behind-the-scenes photo from the set of Star Wars: Episode VIII is released. See more after the jump.
Our first look, is definitely a heart warming reunion, with Carrie Fisher on set, alongside Mark Hamill. Both are wearing dark robes that conceal their costumes. Oscar Isaac,who stars as Poe Dameron, shared this candid moment along with the following on his FB page:
With very little in the way of teasers being officially presented to the public from this hugely anticipated sequel. Isaac, alongside Carrie Fisher‘s General Leia and Mark Hamill’s Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, gives us hope for General Organa in the upcoming film.Shortly after her passing, it was confirmed that Fisher had shot all of her scenes for the upcoming film, and no reshoots were required.
Many have anticipated that Luke and Leia will have a brother and sister reunion in Star Wars 8. They weren’t seen together much on-screen in Return of the Jedi following Luke’s big reveal that he was her brother and that Darth Vader was her father. With just one minute of screen time, Mark Hamill didn’t get to share any screen time with Carrie Fisher in the Force Awakens. This image would indicate that the pair do have a scene together, that they are preparing, or in the midst of shooting, and further fuels the reports that Fisher will have a much more substantial role in Star Wars 8. This image sure does lead fans to believe that the pair do have a scene together, that they are either preparing for or are in the midst of shooting.
