Director Rian Johnson has marked the midway point of principal photography with the release of two new images from the set of "Star Wars: Episode VIII."
"I can’t believe we’re halfway through the shoot," he wrote on his blog. "(We’re halfway through the shoot!)"
The first photo shows part of an X-wing (note the the droid barely visible in back), while the second is a bit more difficult to identify. My best guess is a station on a First Order vessel, or wherever General Hux, Kylo Ren and the survivors of Starkiller Base fled following the events of "The Force Awakens."
Unlike the super-secretive J.J. Abrams, Johnson has been more forthcoming when it comes to glimpses of the film set. He previously offered a peek at the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon, and a look at Maz Kanata (on monitors, anyway).
"Star Wars: Episode VIII" opens Dec. 15, 2017.
