This is not exactly earth shattering news but its a subtle confirmation. Oscar Isaac pretty much confirms he is in Star Wars: Episode VIII in a new interview with Movie Fone:
What was it like being in an X-Wing?
It was very cool, but a little nauseating because the thing is on a gimbal and moving all around. I forgot to breathe and I was like, “Whoa.” But it was very cool.
Your next director isn’t too shabby either. Are you excited about working with Rian?
Yes. Very excited.
Have you talked to him yet?
No, not yet.
As I said, it was pretty much a given that Poe Dameron would return in Star Wars: Episode VIII but you really can’t take anything for granted and it’s nice to hear him say he believes he’s going to be working with Rian Johnson, director of Star Wars: Episode VIII in the near future.
