Today at the BAFTA awards, where John Boyega (Finn) won the best rising star award, he confirmed that he is going to start working on Star Wars Episode VIII tomorrow! We know that Oscar Isaac was with Boyega on Friday via a Instagram post from his page, so I would imagine Isaac is starting tomorrow as well. This is what Boyega had to say regarding working on Episode VIII:
“I start tomorrow… Rian [Johnson, director] has my heart already.”
Daisy Ridley has been uploading a lot of training videos on her Instagram lately, so she’s probably getting ready for Episode VIII as well.
