Take a Peek Behind the Scenes of the New Star Wars Movie

Luke Skywalker is back

Star Wars: Episode VIII doesn’t hit theaters until 2017, but filming has begun—and that means the hype is already in full swing.

The producers of the movie, for now just titled Episode VIII, gave fans a little peek behind the scenes of filming for the new movie, picking up—SPOILER ALERT FOR EPISODE VII—just after Rey finally tracks down Luke Skywalker to give him his long lost light saber. And Luke is looking quite pensive. Watch it above.

The start of filming in London also brought the news that Benicio Del Toro and Laura Dern are joining the cast.
