Check out the video below.Star Wars: Episode VIIIStar Wars: Episode VIII director Rian Johnson announced via the official Star Wars Twitter account that principal filming has completed for Star Wars VIII. Of course there will be pickups and reshoots for the film, but for now it’s in the can and that’s really exciting! The good thing about principal photography having completed now is that there should be a lot of great info for Star Wars Celebration Orlando next year! San Diego Comic Con is in full swing here in sunny Southern California and Friday hosted most of the Star Wars news. I’m here at the con with my family soaking up all of the best Star Wars news to bring to you so let’s get into the important highlights and takeaways from the first three days of the convention!Rogue One: A Star Wars StoryThe fantastic display of costumes from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story featured a brand new character we haven’t seen before! His names is Two Tubes and he looks like a little like Plo Koon after his unfortunate accident. The official Star Wars Facebook posted some details on the character and he sounds pretty cool. Find out all about Two Tubes and look at some sweet photos here.One of my personal favorite aspects of the film making process for Star Wars is the ridiculous amounts of concept art the talented people at Lucasfilm produce for each film. We’ve been fortunate to get a lot of these pieces printed in big books and Rogue One’s “The Art of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story“, was announced on Friday! This is definitely one you’re going to want to pick up if you’ve been enjoying the Rogue One costumes and props so far. Check out the cover: Final slate of the final shot. VIII is officially wrapped. Cannot wait to share it with you all! –@rianjohnson— Star Wars (@starwars) July 22, 2016Star Wars RebelsAt Star Wars Celebration London, Star Wars Legends fan favorite character Grand Admiral Thrawn was announced as an addition to Star Wars Rebels season 3.
